Guy that owns it now is on the east coast and having a blast with the boat. I gotta say, after watching all those haulover videos (and going through it numerous times myself), I’m pretty impressed with the way it handles that water!!

Pure beauty.... needed that this morning. That dude seems to know what he's doing as compared to some we've seen. And you're not kidding that Lavey handles big stuff great. You'd know best but I'm guessing its a combo of good skills from experience and boat hull quality. I gotta assume all the hulls in 35+ are shaped somewhat similarly other than steps which is for at speed right?

Did he change that boat to a stand up or something? Because if he's sitting down he's gotta be 7'+??

When I drove it my head was below the windshield and I'm 6'.

Maybe he's sitting on one knee?

He’s using the horsepower to his advantage. I can see when he is powering up, in accordance with wave. But one hole and it can throw off your timing. I noticed this also happened right at the end of him leaving the inlet. But overall.... I give him a high score. Beautiful boat!

No matter how much experience you have..... things still happen. I took 3 waves over the bow last week when I was leaving Hillsboro Inlet. It was made worse by the fact that I had just proclaimed to the passenger, what an expert I am with the inlets. Figures! Won’t do that again.

Btw..... I always forget to mention this. Hillsboro Inlet is closest to my home. 1 mile.

Pretty sure his up on a knee. I've seen video of them running and he's well bellow the windshield usually.

Lots of variances with a boat build when it comes to handling, even when they're the same length - quality, layup material, rigging, weight, freeboard, balance and center of gravity of the boat, etc.

I was gonna (well I am) post that his head is really close to the top of the windshield - not likely a good move in that stuff.

And once he clears the inlet I don't get why he let off and rolled up and down the chop instead of going over top of it. I see that all the time on the Haulover vids

I think that Lavey is gonna hurt some feelings over there on the East coast. Show many what Chis and company can do out here when it comes to the big water.

Every time I see these videos, the water looks like shit, I wouldnt want to be out in that, I know its the ocean and all and I grew up boating on the ocean but as far as you can see in that video the water looks like crap. Looks like small craft warnings if not more, you would think they would check the forcast.

To stuff is to love.... keeps us humble. Especially in open bows

Is this the only 39 they built? If so, why is that? Would they build a new one?

Yes that’s the only one built and I think it’s because they built it in 08 when the economy tanked. Now look at sales of new 35-42’ vee bottoms, nothing is selling with the exception of some Outerlimits and Cigs maybe..? Fountain and Donzi can’t seem to give them away, Sunsation, Nor-Tech and others all jumped ship to CCs. The new boat market in that size range is effectively dead unfortunately. The used boat market for those seems to be pretty good tho...!

There's a past thread on RDP regarding this boat. A few years back I was in IE and stopped by Lavey shop just nosing round... nice guy [maybe Chris] showed me around. That 39 was in there not quite finished but engines were installed. I later saw it at LA boat show and asked a rep about the boat. If memory serves correct Lavey built it out for a Fla based guy who was gonna add some off his own goodies and it'd basically be a maxed out Lavey to represent the brand in big boy level. Nor sure but perhaps the Fla guy collapsed ultimately and thats why it was at show. Looks like she ended up in knowledgeable hands. I bet somebody here can correct my details.... I'm sure I'm off on several points

Built originally with stock Merc 700’s and NXT’s
Still has Merc 700’s but with stage 3 whipple kits and still NXT’s.

Yes it’s the only 39 EVO built. Why, not 100% sure. Yes a new one could absolutely still be built if someone ordered one!

You’re thinking of a 29 NuEra.
I could have sworn Lavey built a handful of them for German customers. @lavey jr
Those are all 28 EVO’s

That was back when I had hair and we filmed everything with handicams. Lol

There are two boats I regret not having the balls to pull the trigger on coming out of the recession. That is one of them.
To play the cards again that would be in my garage and a lot of other bullshit I spent money on wouldn’t have been in my life.

What’s the other boat you would have bought?
