M37R Deck Mold Arrives at the DCB Factory
DCB Performance Boats of El Cajon, CA, continues to get closer to debuting its much-anticipated new model: the M37R. Yesterday, the deck mold and some other smaller miscellaneous mold parts arrived at the factory. This comes on the heels of the bottom mold arriving the first week of the near year.
The boat’s deck design was spearheaded by Franco Gianni (of SFG Yacht Design, Miami Beach, FL) and the team at DCB. According to DCB President Jeff Johnston, it was derived off of the company’s flagship M44, specifically for a few key features, incuding:
• Three-step steps at transom (bustle), resulting in ease of boarding.
• Dedicated walkway around the side of the windshield, resulting in ease of walking to front deck area.
The boat’s bottom design was a collaboration of an engineering team with decades of knowledge and experience. The plug and mold work was contracted through a third party based in Florida.
Several M37Rs have already been pre-sold, and DCB continues to take deposits on future hulls. slot #6. The first boat out of the mold is slated for a late-April to early-May debut.
