    Located in SoCal...

    Looking to learn about the downeast pilothouse makers...looking specifically for a walkaround pilothouse, 24’-32’ range, outboard or shaft diesel powered.

    looking for a true walkaround...like a parker, but better riding...

    Not many Walkaround Downeast boats made.

    Those that were are truly custom because the top mold needs to be cut down or made from scratch. Add an outboard to that and you a truly searching for a rare bird.

    plus SoCal location doesn’t help your cause.

    I know of a brand new 32’x11’ walk around pilot house fishing boat built by Laconner Maritime fabrication. They are a fiberglass commercial boat building company in Laconner, WA. I believe it is a spec boat, powered by twin 250 or 300 outboards. They sea trialed it recently and it did 50 mph. Their number is 360-466-3629. Ask for Isaac.

    We build the Gurnet Point 25. We can build it as a walkaround. Either straight inboard or outboard.
    Here is the inboard center console boat that goes 32 knots with 270 hp
