    Four years ago Mercury Racing reinvented the performance outboard market with the release of their six cylinder supercharged 2.6L Verado 400R four stroke outboard engine. The performance outboard market had previously and popularly been utterly dominated by high output, and often high maintenance, two-stroke outboard engines. Mercury Racing’s new four-stroke powerhouse meant boaters could now reap all the benefits of a high performance outboard without the finicky characteristics of the...

    When you combine one of the most proven bottoms in this size range, to the style and functionality that Eric is known for, it's pretty easy to come to the conclusion that this boat is going...

    To Jerry Barron, it seems like an eternity. That’s the way nearly all built-from-scratch new boats
    seem to go, never as expeditiously as initially planned or hoped. And making the challenge
    even larger is the fact that Barron Boats didn’t even exist ten months ago.

    (Exterior styling is definitely original. Modern with clean contours accentuated with
    appropriate gelcoat graphics.)

    Congrats to Stephen and Kelly on their new M35!! They are avid boaters that have owned several boats including a 35' Fountain with 525's, and a 38' Fountain with 700's before they stepped into the DCB Camp in 2017 ordering a new M28R! This is their second DCB in as many years and I'm quite sure they will be enjoying what I would call their first "Exotic!"

    It's no doubt the boat will turn heads on any body of water, but when you factor in the boat's home...
