NONE BUILT STRONGER™

Our team of experts have spent the past 30 years refining and perfecting our boats. From creating the in-house designs to the final inspection, meticulous attention to detail and expert craftsmanship go into each step to ensure our boats are the strongest in the industry.

 

Our Process

For every make and model, each step in the process is planned and coordinated in great detail:

1
Like every good business, we start with a plan.

process01

 

2
Proven year after year, our molds are the closest thing to perfection you’ll find.

process02

3
Multiple layers of fiberglass and resin give your boat the unparalleled strength needed to explore the offshore with confidence.

process03

4
The inner hull is pressure-filled with closed-cell urethane foam. Our two-step foam process fills every cavity to capacity for a smooth, quiet, and unsinkable ride.

process04

5
Stringers and flooring give your hull additional form.

process05

6
We weren’t kidding when we said bulletproof hull. The cross section of this 27xs bottom illustrates the rigid composite construction.

process06

7
From iceboxes to center consoles, we hand-build and construct each piece.

process07

8
No detail is too small; even the parts of the boat you will never see are carefully inspected to ensure they are perfect in every way.

process08

9
Additional glass and resin are applied to guarantee nothing is overlooked.

While most boats are molded on the inside, each Cape Horn boat is hand-built or sculpted one at a time. This is what makes our boats unique. Every square inch of the interior is hand-sanded in preparation for the topcoat of exterior grade gelcoat.

11
Once the gelcoat cures, the boat is ready to be separated from the mold and joined to the top assembly.

12
Confirming the hull and flooring are sealed perfectly each time, every time is an important part of the process.

process12

13
The two halves are joined together, and the boat is now ready for the rigging shop.

process13

14
Rod holders are carefully placed where you need them – everywhere.

process14

15
The hardware and engineering systems are now installed. Tracey and Joann have been rigging and wiring Cape Horn boats for over two decades—it’s safe to say they’re experts.

process15

16
Every Cape Horn comes with a solid 316 stainless steel nose guard. It’s for more than just good looks.

No Cape Horn ever leaves the yard or is sent to a customer without President Chris Fabbro’s final inspection.
