New Model Update: Gelcoat Or Paint—DCB M44 Pair Dressing Differently

The first two DCB Performance Boats M44 catamarans (including this one above) should be on the water this summer.

Slated to be on the water this summer, a couple of DCB Performance Boats M44 catamarans—the latest and largest offerings from the El Cajon, Calif., custom high-performance builder—currently are being decked out with graphics in different applications before they head to rigging. That’s the world from the company’s Jeff Johnston.

The first M44 out of the molds currently is being painted by Mark Morris of Visual Imagination in Pelicular, Mo. The 44-footer will be powered by Mercury Racing 1550/1350 engines and should be finished and delivered in late August, according to Johnston.

Hull No. 2 currently is being dressed in predominantly white gelcoat—”with some pearl and black accents” said Johnston— by the in-house team at DCB. That catamaran will be powered by a pair of Mercury Racing 1100 engines and should be on the water in July.

“They’re both going to be beautiful boats, but their graphics are going to be very different,” said Johnston. “It will be interesting to see what people prefer. We’re eager to get them both rigged and finished, and deliver them to our clients.”
