This "classic" Downeast boat with modern power will get you to port ahead of any storm!

Downeast hull designs are known for their soft, dry ride. They ride at relatively flat angles at all speed ranges. Moreover, like many private airplanes, their single engine design cuts fuel and engine maintenance costs in half while providing a keel that gives great protection to the propeller and rudder. Downeast boats are often custom built boats and lend themselves to redesign to meet a new owner’s needs. Due to the nature of custom built boats they can cost more than a production boat but remember the bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten. Get aboard today and “let the boat do the talking”.
