“Jak Bite” – 30’ x 10’  V-berth Cabin / Flybridge

This boat was designed and built for the Owner of Bay Welding.  The goal of this project was to build a family sized overnight boat that would sleep 6 comfortably, have a reasonable amount of comforts, and achieve a good cruise speed while still using small block outboards to save fuel.  This boat also features the first installation of the Sea Star Optimus 360 Joystick control system.  This system enhances operator control of the boat by integrating all the engine controls and steering into a single control point for low speed docking and maneuvers.  This build also features a flybridge, teak trim, Corian counter tops, fish box, large cleaning table, dual side boarding doors, a windlass, custom vinyl cabin wrap, and hydraulic jack plate lifts for the outboards.
