If it's the MB, then I've seen it and it's pretty wild!

Here you go Mike. Thanks for the compliment on the boat.
See what you guys think....

haha... i saw it in one of the background pics that they had on their website of another boat... the red sunpad immediately caught my attention and I begged Dustin for pics, he caved. I did keep it secret though

I have a feeling we will be seeing more than one of those exact color schemed boats at the lakes this year.

Not sure I would own it but damn Craig, you design the sickest looking boats of any dealer I have seen. Most wouldn't take the risks you do.

When are they going to make a z5 for mb? One of those with a red powdercoated frame would make that boat ever sicker!

It also needs 4 or 6 REV10's with red grills with maybe a thin yellow accent.

Thank you guys.. I was going to definitely tint the windows but had second thoughts because of the liability aspect..

Mike Brendel is really responsible for this bad boy. He let me get creative and went out of his way to make this boat happen. It sold to the first person that saw it in person!

The wheels are Mayhems.. Mark at Boatmate hooked me up with this blacked out trailer too..

Hopefully this time the first words out of your mouth aren't "Ohhh, I probably should ask for a 20% non refundable deposit on this one!"

seriously craig, you've done a great job on a bunch of these boats, using color combos that I'd never have the ballz to order. Especially given the design fails that are out there (with MB in particular, I've gotta say... flames anyone?), it's certainly not as easy as just picking randomly.

Great job man, keep it up!

I appreciate all of the nice words fellas.. I'm fortunate to have an owner who let's me do my thing and I have 2 great brands to play with.

Maybe I should do a contest. How about....
Send me ideas for my next project and the winning idea wins a free wakeboard or glasses or something like that. What do y'all think?
Maybe the winner and co-build something cool and post pics of the process along the way?

Bold for sure. The only boat where red interior works IMO is an old mahogany Chris Craft.

How about a red ferrari boat. All red gelcoat, peanut butter interior and flexiteak on the platform and ccockpit floor(like Grants Boat).

I'm going to talk to Mike about some upholstery samples..
Vinyl is key as well in my opinion..
Has to be right shades and textures..

How about a removable bow cover/hardtop?
Something like a Corvette targa top..
Just brainstorming...

I have the same diamond vinyl in a bright blue. That would be sick too..

Maybe some Shelby stripes on the Bimini top and mooring cover?

Sorry to be a sedan driving luddite, but what makes it "Ferrari" so to speak? The colors? Some kind of special upholstery?

Wheels look custom, and I know the fender wells are customized but are they Ferrari parts?

I looked through Ferrari interior pics and many of them used red leather with black trim and yellow piping..

Mike and I just nicknamed it the Ferrari boat.

I told the new owner he should have a little yellow horse sticker made and put it on the windshield.. Ha

That boat looks AWESOME!!!
Definitely one of the best MB's I have ever seen.

MB should use that color scheme on the 24 tomcat brochure cover...

Since you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area how about a Cowboys boat that is silver and blue somehow or you could get into college themes and do a red river rivalry setup with 2 boats. A burnt orange/white boat and a maroon/white boat?

How about something with interior stitching like the Ford King Ranch

I'd better get a real prize ok'd by the big boss tomorrow cuz this looks like it may get interesting!

OK, here is my proposal..
Winning idea gets to fly to MB plant with me to see the boat while it's being built and meet the guys at MB.

Anybody think that would be cool?
Pick the design, watch em build it, then maybe get a little nameplate on the boat?

Hey Brett, great minds think alike!

If someone can grab the photo of this boat you'll see the Dallas area colors. Have to be careful though cuz Jerry has lots of attorneys! Lol

Little limited from the boat builder but here is an OSU boat. Powder coat the rubrail, windshield trim, and tower black. Think you can powder coat the MB orange. In the interior replace the tan with the orange they have not an option in the boat builder. Powder coat everything in the interior black.

One more that is a little out there in Kawasaki colors. Do something similar and powder coat the tower, rubrail and windshield to match top deck of the boat.

This picture I am going to attach is a pretty poor example but have you done a mostly white with green boat? The northwest rider boat was this combo and looked great. What would be cool is if you could do it with some sort emerald green or metal flake green. Not too dark but not too light or neon. Interior would be white base with some matching green piping or accents.

Here is the NW riders boat from the past. Thought it looked cool. It is like the sprite or 7-up boat or maybe the wonderful wizard of OZ.

That's pretty funny. I hit Mike up for some lime green metal flake while he was here at the Dallas boat show. He told me to get some samples sent to him so he could see them.
That's where I planted the seed on this Ferrari boat as well. I originally planned on doing a black metal flake "X" on it.. There was a bass boat across the hall from our booth and I showed it to him but I decided to just go with the all black version.

Looks awesome. How did you smoke the MB graphic? I am thinking about smoking the graphic a bit on mine now too, but still want to be able to pull the smoke off the graphic and go to the chromed look.... Was that done at the factory or did you just tint it?

OK, so let me get this right....

I've heard requests for all black with peanut butter interior.. CHECK.
I've heard white and lime green. CHECK.
I've heard Kawasaki lime and blue. CHECK.
I've heard OSU orange and black. CHECK.

I've already built em boys!
Well, I didn't build the lime and blue, but we did just trade for that boat this week..

Gotcha covered!!!

Those Cuda's are pretty sick. I always liked the Mother's car wash El Camino but it might be kind of plain for a boat. Would look good but plain.

Craig, a kid up here in Seattle had Mastercraft make him a custom 2007 Xstar that was the same as the lime green one you just posted but the green was emerald green metal flake.

I like the idea of a sold white boat, white powdercoated rubrail, white powdercoated mb decals, white trailer, black wheels, black diamond plate, white tower, white boardracks, SOLID white interior (all white accents/base/piping), clear lenses on the trailer, and black carpet.

That boat would pop.

Saw the black and orange X25 at the boat show, we loved it but needed more on the interior and the blacked out windshield and tower. I am sure it sold quickly as there seem to be a few running around DFW.

Craig, river green or emeralk green would look sick. I think the green flake I posted and Travis' boat are the same green flake and are probably closer to the emerald. I am not sure about having a bunch of green but something liek teh X or the accents on the classic would look goto with a mostly white boat. Maybe all Green Metal flake hull sides with a white bottom and X would look good though. I would have to see it mocked up.

Here is another idea for Mastercrafts. Not sure if you sell many prostar 197's but I think a throwback stars and stripes would be sick on a 197. Like this but a new boat.Might have to change some of the proportions though to make it look right.

Well, out of 100 new MasterCrafts we sell about "none" 197's here in Dallas. lol

However, that is a very classic beautiful look on those boats.

Would we be crossing the line to build a stars and lines MB? lol

How do these people handle those colors in the Texas sun? I can't even step on the blue on my sun pad on a 100+ day. I guess the wow factor sells them and the ouch factor comes later.

The new style vinyls are much cooler to the touch than traditional vinyl. I've posted before about how we used to never do anything other than "the whitest available" until 2011 when we began to see this new carbon fiber style vinyl. Now it's still 112 degrees in Texas during the late summer months so beware of any vinyl that you buy. It's just ridiculous here when it's that time of year no matter what you are sitting on...

Craig you need to give a years worth of "BTS" (Bow to Stern) spray on wax with each boat. I currently have a blue Nautique, Red Crownline and Black jet ski and thats the only stuff that sheds water spots before they bake on. No affilation with the company, just love the product.
