Following fast on the heels of the Callinectes 16 introduction, work
began designing a larger version. Stretched to 18 feet, the Callinectes
18 look like a leopard ready to pounce. The additional length presents
more interior space plus a longer foredeck, giving her an aggressive
and even more alluring look.
Powered by the fuel-efficient Weber 750 MPE engine and jet-drive, performance
will mirror her smaller sister with speeds approaching 50 MPH. Her strong
but lightweight construction keeps fuel consumption down below 3 gallons/hour
at cruising speeds. Custom upholstery uses 4 inch thick foam for unsurpassed
comfort. A mix of classic and modern hardware adorn the Callinectes
18 deck, keeping styling true to her pedigree. Creative storage abounds
keeping items handy and secure for a glorious day on the water.
Initial orders will use cold-molded vacuumed bagged hulls of cedar and
epoxy finished with Awl-Grip paint. Decks are hand-laid mahogany and
holly. Additional details are available upon request.
