Michigan Luxury Boat Builder, Carlson Boatworks, Taking Orders for 2008 Delivery

Howell, MI, August 09, 2007 --(PR.com)-- The beauty and luxury of yesteryear's hand-built open cockpit mahogany runabout is back. Classic elegance and sophistication is now married to modern technology, reliability, and low maintenance in a stunning craft that harkens back to the glory days of the classic American and Italian beauties. Three years of hands on design and refinement by Eric Carlson, Naval Architect and Marine Engineer, has been worth the wait.

Using the latest refinements in tunnel drive propulsion and state-of-the-art hull design, the new CB25 provides the excitement and visceral joy of a full throated inboard with a reduced draft that will permit lucky owners to venture into shallower waters without fear of propeller or rudder damage.

Starting with a blank sheet of paper, Carlson designed the CB25 from the keel up, combining the newest marine design advancements with sophisticated hand craftsmanship that incorporated modern adhesives, hi-tech composite bagging techniques, and materials requiring a minimum of maintenance. The result is nothing short of spectacular, and incredibly satisfying.

These high performance speedsters will carry you and your guests in refinement and luxury at over 50 mph while their head-turning beauty will be in such limited supply you will never have to worry about seeing yourself coming and going. Hand polished mahogany, mirror like stainless steel, raw teak decks, and hand sewn leather will make each a personalized work of art well, well worth the wait and the price. If elegance, performance, and exclusivity are for you, so is the CB25. The one problem they have not been able to solve is how to keep the crowds away.

Whether your CB25 is your only boat, or one of many, it's an investment for which your family will thank you, now and for decades to come. With only a few CB25 runabouts to be built each year, ordering early is the best way to ensure being one of the select few who will be able to enjoy the pride of owning one of these rare beauties.
