Project: Barton and Gray Daychaser 48

After fifteen years of service, tens of thousands of outings, the use of third partly build boats, a demand for a larger more open vessel  has pushed Barton and Gary to design there own Daychaser 48. With help coming from Zurn design, and being built at Boston Boatworks known for building the MJM line, the Daychase 48 offers full deck use from fore to aft, while a cabin below offers a single berth, shower head, and an office space. The idea here is to have a dedicated traditional down East lobster boat build for the purpose of club membership. It will be interesting to see if the Daychaser 48 will stay in the area or will become something more. Powered by twin Cummins 550hp with Hamilton jet propulsion the Daychaser 48 is expected to reach a top speed up to 35 knots.  Hull one is expected to launch in 2022, with other hulls following in order to renew the Barton and Gray fleet.
