  1. Keeping The Tradition Alive... 2019 DCB Regatta

    Over the years Lake Havasu City has been host to many a manufacturers regatta. From the early days the regatta has been an institution for both owners and fans of the many builders that have come and gone in the west coast boating scene. In their hay day regattas pulled in huge numbers of both boats and attendees and manufacturers spent cubic dollars to show their appreciation to the brand faithful.

    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!

  4. 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!

    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!).
