nice boat for sure. Too bad some need to express their negative opinions about the gelcoat design. I'm sure the owner loves it
meh its ok. Im not a huge fan of the design but i love the colors. I think the grey is really awesome. my next boat will be base grey. This new gel design seems like something i have sen on roll bar boats. Nonetheless the 26 cat is the best looking boat shockwave builds imo

This is what I wanted to build before finding my 2016 earlier this year. Glad someone built one. I talked to them a couple times wanting to build one with the 300R’s but never got close enough to terms to sit and come to a solid price. My biased opinion, this 26’ cat has the largest cabin and mid cuddy. Granted, Eliminator and others now have the extended cabin area for the O/B boats but Shockwave has that space with an I/B.

For a heavy boat that rides like a Cadillac, those are some great performance numbers! Good job!

I like it! The graffics are a bit bold for my taste but its not the same front and rear 2 or 3 color swoosh spikes (don't know how to describe them) that all the other manufacturers are using now. And btw, why is it that almost nobody does graphics anymore that flow WITH the lines of the hull instead of through them?

Not sure if they made any major changes to this boat, but the next one with 450’s was vacuum bagged. From what I was told, they took 400-500 pounds out of it. Also changed up the interior layout and did a bunch of other changes.

I saw this boat last week, Bob just got back from testing it... pics do ZERO justice. Really nice boat, Shockwave is PUMPING out really nice boats. There was a 26' or 28' deck boat in the building that was fricken AWESOME!!!! One of the nicest I've seen come out of there.

glad to see these getting built and those are solid numbers for a deck and 800hp.

as for the design of the gel, owner wanted what he got. Some might like it, some will not, but if the owner is happy WGAF what I think about his design!

Should ask greg or Bob!
I might be swinging by the shop this weekend to get a peak at Johns. He’ll let me know Friday if it’s worth me going yet or not, since he’s shooting to stop by as well. If I do, I’ll of course ask Greg some more details.

....and you know why. Lol

I will say I’m glad to see Bob and the crew building their cat, and the outboard program seems to agree with the hull.
Nice job, Shockwave👍

they are definitely close but different. there is a 28 deck with similar scheme that was in the boat show last year red and grey i believe.

my design has been copied numerous times.

Two 26’s prior with the same scheme. And they’re veryyy similar to the Elim. But most styles get duplicated so I’m not hatin. lol.

I’m with @RiverDave the outboards changed the whole style. Can’t wait to see Johns tho. The 300R’s and 450R’s are just so much sexier.

C’mon Trump!! Don’t you let us down now. I already made a soft commitment based on you putting Sleepy Joe to bed in November.
