PREVIOUS PROJECT /DEMO BOATS

 

 

 

Our first demo/project boat in 2008 was completed in 2013 the “Wild Butterfly” which was a 1987 Grady White 240 Offshore with SIMRAD, Ocean LED and KVH

 

 

Our second project boat in 2012 was the “Winnie Estelle”, a 1920 Chesapeake Bay which was our first big retrofit featuring SIMRAD and GOST. Also included was a complete installation of A/C electric shore power and distribution, as well as fresh water tanks and holding tanks. 

 

 

 

Our third demo/project boat in 2017 was a 2017 Onslow Bay center console “Leviathan” with a complete SIMRAD package very similar to our current project.
