Image Of The Week: All Smiles In First 400R-Powered RPM 26 By Lavey Craft

Joe Malich of Boat Shop Northwest and Revolution Performance Marine Powerboats was extremely proud to share a few images with speedonthewater.com of his Washington-based customers enjoying their new 2021 RPM 26 Redline By Lavey Craft Motorsports last weekend. And it’s easy to see why when you see the smiles on the owners’ faces after they got back from cruising the Puget Sound near Gig Harbor, Wash., in their 26-foot catamaran powered by twin Mercury Racing 400R engines.

It definitely appears that Ron and Carmella Franz are satisfied with their outboard-powered cat that features finely crafted upholstery, expertly detailed rigging and an impressive gelcoat scheme that is somewhat of a throwback design with the tan base and maroon, orange and yellow accents.

Built by the Corona, Calif., manufacturer that partnered with Malich more than two years ago, the Franz’s RPM 26 Redline By Lavey Craft was the first 26-foot cat to be powered by twin 400-hp outboard engines, and, according to Malich, everyone is pleased with the boat’s performance overall.

Since taking delivery of his RPM 26 Redline last month, Ron Franz has been enjoying the striking boat this summer.

Malich added that he currently has a new RPM 26 for sale—the “electric blue” boat below that just came out of the mold today—that is ready for a customer to choose interior and power since the boat can be powered by either inboard or outboard engines.

The next RPM 26 Redline By Lavey Craft Motorsports is currently for sale and ready for someone to choose interior and power.
