Starting tomorrow, powerboat enthusiasts who venture to Pomona, Calif., for the 63rd annual Los Angeles Boat Show, which runs from Jan. 10-13 at the Pomona Fairplex, are going to have some pretty cool new hardware to check out.

With all of the performance boats set up in “High-Performance Hall,” aka building No. 5, that should be the first stop. From that point, it’s your call what to check out first. Surely the brightest boat in the bunch—the new M44 Widebody from DCB Performance Boats built for well-known DCB customer Dave “Magoo” Megugorac—is going to get your attention.
The El Cajon, Calif., builder is set to have a few other models alongside the stunning 44-foot catamaran, which is powered by twin Mercury Racing 1550 engines and sits on a tilt trailer built by Peter Hledin and the team at Skater Powerboats, an M28R with twin Mercury Racing Verado 400R engines, an M31 with twin Mercury 1100 engines and an M33R also with Verado 400R engines.
