Growler VTR950 Making Excellent Progress in Brazil

SEC Boats have been charging ahead with the production of their first Growler VTR950 design, and as you can see from the photo the boat is looking stunning! Antonio Soto, his family and team have done an incredible job and the styling is really brought to life in the finished product.

The Growler VTR950 Design Portfolio has been updated with a number of photos from the factory, so have a look - including a series of shots of the cabin top being lowered into place. A great glimpse into a composite boat building facility. If you're interested in the Growler VTR950, or in having one built - please contact the office for more information.

New Arrow 1360 Layout Now Available!

The Arrow 1360 now has a new interior layout option! The new Arrow Series have been making a splash (pun intended) around the world, and a number of Arrow 1200 projects will soon hit the water. A new interior layout option is available, as a standard design option, so you will simply choose your preferred layout when ordering your plans and kit. 

Featuring a twin helm configuration, and unique folding roof designs to provide sun and rain protection to the skipper. The Arrow 1360 design portfolio has been updated with photo galleries showing each layout version in detail, so be sure to check it out. 

Brand New Arrow 1500 Announced

Following the outstanding success of the Arrow 1200 & 1360, we're pleased to announce a bigger sister - the brand new Arrow 1500! Many of you loved the Arrow concept of need before greed, and a quick build guaranteed with the 100% flat panel construction but with a little more room for extended cruising. Well wait no longer! Featuring the same sharp stealth styling, and with room to be as extravagent or as lean as you wish, the Arrow 1500 is going to be extremely popular. 

A full design portfolio with Study Plans is coming soon, and the first CAD renders look fantastic, with great proportions and taking that Arrow concept to a new larger, more exciting scale.
