Tideline Boats of Washington, N.C., is a new company that builds a 19-foot single-outboard cat (175 hp maximum). "We wanted to keep the cat ride but make it look more like a traditional Carolina boat," company co-owner Michael Collins says. "So we rounded the bow off and gave it a broken sheer line and a lot of flare."
The boat also has a Carolina-style teak steering pod on the console. Tideline has sold five 19s and completed three, says company co-owner George Stronach. Prices range from $35,999 to $39,999, depending on the engine. Tideline will hang Suzuki or Honda outboards on the stern.
