Compared to many of our Image of the Week stories we bring you weekly on speedonthewater.com, this image probably doesn’t compare in terms of composition, awe-factor or newsworthiness. But here’s what it does have going for it—it definitely catches your attention and we’ve yet to see anything quite like it.

Thanks to Doug Parks, who hauls boats across the country for DCB Performance Boats frequently, the El Cajon, Calif., company’s latest M31 Widebody, which was ordered for stock by Horizon Motorsports in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., looks like it is about to be launched for a day of fun in the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreational Area in Glamis, Calif. The popular location for off-road vehicles is between DCB’s shop and the dealership’s second facility in Lake Havasu—Horizon Motorsports’ other store is in Sterling, Colo.—and ended up being a great place to shoot the stunning red catamaran powered by twin Mercury Racing 700SCi engines.
“We’re very pleased with how the third M31 we ordered from DCB turned out,” said Preston Woolery, the owner of Horizon Motorsports who took delivery of the 31-footer almost two weeks ago. “We’ve done well with the DCBs so far so we ordered this one and another one that is right behind it in production. The next one is a beautiful white and black boat with 700s as well. For insurance purposes, reliability and price point, I think the 700s are the best package for a stock boat.”
Woolery said that the fully loaded boat is listed at $489,000 and that he’s sold the last couple he’s ordered within a few weeks. He made sure to point out that Horizon also takes on trades.
“There are a lot of nice boats out there, but I don’t think any builders makes a nicer boat than DCB,” Woolery added. “The attention to detail in a DCB is second to none. Are there less-expensive options? Of course. But the quality and potential resale value of a DCB is incomparable.”
Ready for immediate delivery, the 31-foot catamaran, which tops out at 130 mph, could sell quickly so Woolery recommends contacting him online or at 928-855-9555 as soon as possible if you’re interested.
