DCB Set to Showcase New M35 Open Bow and More at Next Week’s L.A. Boat Show

Starting next Thursday, attendees of the 2016 Los Angeles Boat Show (Feb. 25-28) can get an up close look at Lickity Split, the stunning M35 Widebody from DCB Performance Boats featuring twin Mercury Racing 1350 engines, as well as two yet-to-be-delivered models from the El Cajon, Calif., boat builder.

DCB’s first M35 Open Bow is powered by a pair of 565-hp engines from Mercury Racing.

Joining the well-documented Lake Havasu City, Ariz.-based 35-foot catamaran under the lights of the L.A. Convention Center is a cool red, gray and black M29 powered by twin Mercury Racing 565 engines with ITS and Bravo Sportmaster drives that will be heading east not long after the show to a customer in Ohio who can’t wait for some warm weather.

The other boat DCB is going to display is easily the most newsworthy being that it’s the company’s first M35 Open Bow model. Based off the popular M35 Widebody, the neat-looking gray, red, black and yellow boat blends DCB’s West Coast/open bow roots with its more modern M-Series designs.

Utilizing the same power package as the M29, the 35-footer is DCB’s first boat featuring SeaDek throughout. And while we’ll get a better idea of how it looks and feels when we see the boat in person next week, it appears to be nice and seems like a great idea for a Colorado River-based boat.

According to Jeff Johnston, who invited everyone to come visit the DCB team as well as other DCB boat owners at the show next week, the first walk-through/open bow M-Series model is being delivered to Lake Powell. He said there is another M35 Open Bow in production and plenty of interest in the new design.
