"Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine."
-- Elvis Presley
Greetings from Seacraft Classics,
I hope Spring has made it to your neck of the woods. After a very mild-but-long winter, we are anxious to get out on the water.
I've been enjoying some great books lately, and want to share a yachting-focused book with you.
I highly recommend Bruce Knecht's "Grand Ambition". This book is a well written, and at times, gut-wrenching true account of building a 187' yacht at Trinity Yachts in Gulfport, MS during the recent financial crisis. The story vividly captures the travails of not only the yacht owner, but the designer, Trinity management, and, most importantly, the everyday lives of the hundreds of skilled workers who built this yacht.
We are part of an industry that continues to evolve during changing economic realities. We are all connected in this process and their story. It is a tribute to individual resourcefulness under very trying times.
Seacraft Classics is fortunate to continue to experience steady customer demand for custom yacht models that provide pleasant memories of times spent on their boats. Pictured below are some examples of recently delivered models to satisfied customers.
The Spring boating season is upon us and we wish you a great start of this special time in every boater's life.
Give me a call at 1-800-356-1987 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to connect on building a model of your boat. I'll help you fill out a Custom Model Information Form (PDF) from the web site so we have the information needed to begin the commission.
You can also request a quote on a custom model 24/7 right here.
