A new build is on its way from Stuart, Florida-based American Custom Yachts (ACY). This 68-footer, named Chach, will be completed within the next two years. Soon after, it will be competing in the world's best tournaments. Chach will have the hull interior reinforced with Kevlar. Interior bulkheads have been installed, and preparation is underway for the rudder table and forward subfloor.
American Custom Yachts President Dominick Lacombe says that all their boats are different and that they never build the same boat twice. When it comes down it, he credits the talent.
When it comes to the toilsome aspects of the operation, ACY is always evolving with the times.
"The challenging part is with the higher horsepowers, making the boat strong enough to go fast enough in the heavy seas, and still make a stable platform for fishing."
But, ACY does just that. Backbreaking work that stems all from an idea in someone's head. Vision to visual, this is why ACY has been around all this time.
