Between stories on speedonthewater.com about the first new 32-foot Doug Wright catamaran with twin Mercury Racing Verado 400R engines, the unveiling of the Performance Boat Center/Jimmy John’s-backed 38-foot Skater Powerboats canopied catamaran just in time for the Super Boat International Offshore World Championships in Key West, Fla., and the restoration of White Tornado, a classic 1969 Bertram offshore raceboat, by TNT Custom Marine, it’s been a solid news week. And that’s not even counting the half-dozen reports on race teams preparing for Key West as well as new product stories from the likes of Active Thunder, Cigarette and MTI.
The first 32 CCX from Sunsation Boats made its public debut this week at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Yet somehow the story I wrote Wednesday on the sale of the first 32 CCX from Sunsation Boats—a boat Matt Trulio and I have covered extensively here on OffshoreOnly.com as well as on speedonthewater.com since Sunsation announced it was building the boat last year—managed to generate some excellent traffic numbers. Especially when you consider it was our seventh story dedicated to the new 32-footer. Obviously we wouldn’t cover it if we (and our readers) didn’t deem it newsworthy.
