Jeff and Meg Pierce have returned to us for another classic looking boat in the vein of the rumrunners of old. While their first boat built with us, COMET, has been a huge success for their use on the Cape, the new boat will be heading to the west coast of Florida for picnics and short junkets. Aluminum-built, the 31' open center console features plenty of teak and varnished wood on her as well. She is powered by a 422 hp Volvo D6-435 diesel connected to a Hamilton 292 Jet for a top speed of 34 knots. Dieter Empacher
designed her as he did with their companion commuter express launch COMET. Jeff's company, Pierce Aluminum, supplied all the water jet cut aluminum plate for this project which makes the layout so much easier. The aluminum hull construction phase was the third done completely by Lyman-Morse at our metal fabrication facility just a short distance from our main yard.
