The journey begins with us gathering crucial information from you so we can better understand the applications for which your boat will be used. These early conversations ensure we deliver a custom boat that will exceed your expectations.
The design process kicks off with a consultation with Tim Winters, where line drawings are created using arrangements that fit your needs. The developed concept is then handed off to Jesse Rhodes of Rhodes Yacht Design. Jesse and his team develop three-dimensional models of the hull and exterior surfaces. Once the exterior shapes and structures are created, the model is peeled back and the inner working layers are built out. After this process is complete, you are presented with full renderings—a glimpse through the window into exactly how your new vessel will look. Each boat is engineered to turn heads, get looks, and exceed performance standards. With each level of design, you are personally involved to make sure we are creating exactly what you want.
We utilize the cold-molded method as our primary form of hull construction. Typical hull construction is built from multiple layers of plywood encapsulated in fiberglass or Kevlar. Each hull is laid up on a plywood jig that is developed directly from the three-dimensional models created by Rhodes Yacht Design and cut out on a CNC machine. This method allows us to accurately build what was created on the computer model with extreme precision.
As our team works away from the hull construction, we utilize more composite materials. The bulkheads and decks are laid up out of composite core infused with epoxy and fiberglass. Superstructures and parts are also laid up on jigs from the CNC machine and are constructed using a bead and cove method. Our craftsmen combine technology and old-world craftsmanship through each step to ensure we are building the finest boats on the water. Each vessel is built using the best of materials and standards to ensure the quality of the product.
