The latest yacht from Paul Mann Custom Boats launched this spring. The 60-foot Caught Up is a 41.5-knot, two-stateroom, two-head, cold-molded Carolina sportfisherman built for a Florida couple with plans to “travel great distances and fish often,” says company owner Paul Mann.
Bertram Yachts will follow its new 35 with a 58-foot convertible, scheduled to begin construction in June and launch in late 2017.
A Rhode Island boatbuilder will launch the second generation of its North Rip 21 this spring, improving a seakindly deep-vee center console. US Watercraft has closed the transom and moved the outboard to an Armstrong engine bracket, freeing cockpit space for a live well and storage while making the boat drier and safer, says Max Buerman, the chief financial officer and a company partner. “The 21 is versatile, perfect for the bays and capable of heading offshore,” says Buerman. “With the enclosed transom you’re less exposed to the elements when reversing or drift fishing on a current. It’s definitely safer and drier.”
The 450 Sundancer, the third model among Sea Ray’s next-generation coupe-style sport yachts, is a foot longer and beamier than its predecessor, launched in 2009.
