It all starts with a pile of wood. Follow the boat build of the 58-foot BB Boats all they way to the day it is delivered. Build Specs: LOA: 58’ Beam:17′ Draft: 4′ Fuel: 1000 Gal Water: 110 gallons Generators: 10 kW Phasor Power: 715 hp C12 CAT diesels Using the same building techniques that have proven effective for Carolina builders since the mid-1900’s, BB Boats are double stick-framed, juniper-and-plywood planked. While they build boats the same way pioneers such as Warren O’Neal did, advances in technology are always welcome in their shop. Using high-tech materials such as Gougeon Bros. epoxy, AB fir plywood and Knytex 1708 bi-axil fiberglass cloth, the technology and new materials continue to offer positive changes. The main goal of the BB Boats team is to stick with materials that have proven themselves in terms of both performance and cost throughout the years.
