  1. DCB pushing boundaries with 450R’s!

    Just last week DCB repowered one of their M28’s from 300’s to the new Merc 450’s! Pictured here with the original 300’s With an additional 300 hp (150 per side) the boat picked up an incredible 20 mph gain! Taking the boat from 113 mph to a blistering 133! Pictured with the new 450’s Upon initial testing at Lake Elsinore their new M33 ran 125 mph with the 450’s and 36 pitch props. The number is respectable, but the main comments we received was the unbelievable mid range acceleration...
  2. Nordic finished tooling on their new 31 True Tunnel!

    Nordic has completed tooling on their latest model the new 31! The boat is the little brother to the 355 that was debuted in January at the Los Angeles Boat show! read article here Thane added these little winglets on the side to give the boat a longer and sleeker / low profile appearance and they came out fantastic. This is something I can't recall seeing before on a boat that is designed solely for outboard power. It is important to note that the transom of the boat will not look...
  3. DCB Delivers it's latest 33R with Twin 450's

    Owner Greg Timmon's has to be stoked with DCB's latest delivery his own M33R with twin 450's! The boat made it's first impressions on the crowd at the Lake Powell Challenge this last weekend and from what we have heard it was definitely a crowd pleaser! It's hard not to be when it's a newer model boat, with the latest in Merc Racing's power, and a build sheet that checks almost every box. RDP got it's hands on the actual build order for the boat, and while it's slightly redacted (removed...
  4. Twin 450's coupled to a 355 and The Bully loose in Powell?

    That's the kind of nightmare that keeps other boat manufacturers awake at night. There is little doubt that the 355's will cover more ground than any other boats at the "Lake Powell Challenge" this weekend, that's what Paul (Balls to the) Wallner is not only known for but is nicknamed after. Paul's true passion in boating is the build, the dial in, and then flogging them like they owe him money (or in this case adrenaline) from Parker Damn to Davis Damn. It didn't take long for him to...
  5. DCB M33R with Twin 450's - It was worth the wait

    After Mercury Racing's unprecedented press conference in Nashville a little over two months ago, both manufacturers and customers alike were chomping at the bit to get their hands on the new Merc 450. In some cases the frenzy was so great that people were threatening to cancel their boat owners if they weren't among the first to receive them! DCB recently acquired one of the new production 450's and it was slated for this M33 build. Upon completion of the boat is when speculation,...

  7. DCB Announces it's new M37R! Here's what you need to know

    When Mercury Racing released the 400R, everybody had high expectations, but I don't think anybody could have predicted the impact that it has had in the performance boat market. Fast Catamarans have historically been powered with Stern Drives, going back from the days with a single stern drive blower motor, up to twin 1350's (and beyond now!). It didn't take long for people to figure out that the reliable outboard power, and the fuel efficiency was an absolute home run, and a perfect fit...
