The best laid plans center around a boat. Our plan was to develop a craft with equal parts performance and purpose. We succeeded. Up to 320 hp of twin-prop, sterndrive mobilize 23-feet, 7-inches of exquisite form and function. Thoroughly considered amenities include a bow boarding platform, privacy compartment with portable marine commode and 30-inch deep aft platform. The plan just changed; you're staying all weekend.

Construction Details
  • Hull & Deck: Specially blended, top-grade marine gelcote with UV inhibitors provide excellent weatherability and keep a glossy finish. Twenty-four mils of thickness out-weighs industry standards.
  • Hull & Deck: A vinylester barrier coat is laid down over the gelcote for added protection. It also offers much better cosmetics and protects laminate from water intrusion, reducing the chance of cosmetic blisters.
  • Hull & Deck: Three separate layers including hand-rolled random strand fiberglass chop and Larson's custom formulated 36 oz. and 24 oz. knitted fiberglass combine to make a seriously durable vessel.
  • Hull & Deck: Tough biaxial material is triple matted along hull bottoms for better resistance to impact damage and torsional twisting.
  • Hull & Deck: Stress points and chines are triple matted for added strength.
  • Hull & Deck: A one-piece XL Boat Panel stringer system is installed with knitted fiberglass and chop to become a permanent and integral part of the hull.
  • Hull & Deck: All cavities under the floor and stringers are filled with expanding urethane flotation foam, which chemically bonds to the hull surface, stringers and floor to prevent water accumulation. The foam also deadens noise and vibration.
  • Hull & Deck: Unitized deck construction, with deck, and cockpit fabricated as a single unit, provides greater structural integrity and less “racking” and flexing than common “layer cake” construction methods. It also “caps” the hull, preventing water from entering the engine compartment.
  • Hull & Deck: Precision overlap hull-to-deck joints eliminate the “hinge effect” of flanged hull-to-deck joints, producing a stronger, more durable seam. Mechanical fasteners every 2"– 4" around the perimeter assure consistent, reliable fastening. A polyurethane sealant/bonding compound supplements the joint.
  • Electrical: Harnessed, Color-Coded Wiring Systems, with loomed runs of individually labeled, wiring on both AC and DC sides, provide durability, corrosion resistance and easy troubleshooting. All 12V harness sections are joined with pin connectors, and 12V and 110V accessories are hard-wired.
  • Electrical: All electrical components in the engine compartment are ignition protected for your security.
  • Cockpit: Exterior upholstery fabrics are designed for maximum performance in marine environments. Surface treatment prevents UV damage and mildew, providing maximum wearability and resistance to harsh marine elements.
  • Cockpit: Fiberglass boarding platforms with a skid-resistant surface allows easy boarding and includes a ladder.
  • Hardware: Aluminum Coring For All Deck Features – rail stanchion feet and cleats are backed with aluminum coring, which spreads the torsional load, provides more lasting strength and reliability than wooden, increases the life of mountings and reduces risk of damage due to water penetration.
  • Hardware: All fuel cells are constructed of polyurethane material – not aluminum – to eliminate the worry of replacing rusted or salt water corroded tanks.
  • Construction Extras: Performance Engineering – performance cannot be measured in terms of speed alone. Performance is a harmony of ride, stability, handling, fuel economy… and speed. Larson Sport Boats provide all of these elements.
  • Construction Extras: Certified Component Installations – major OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) component installations are co-engineered and certified by actual OEM manufacturers to meet operational and design performance standards.
  • Construction Extras: Experienced People – skilled and dedicated, with years of boat-building experience. Our engineers and craftsmen design and create Larson Sport Boats with great care and attention to detail. Many of our people, in fact, are second-generation boat builders (some are third generation) and all have a deep sense of pride in their work.
  • Details: 34 oz. mega vinyl with 19 mils of top thickness ensures Larson owners they are getting the best upholstery available.
  • Details: All top-grade foam and vinyl is treated to prevent fading and mildew.
  • Details: 24 oz. marine carpet has a warranty against fading and fiber failure. It is UV stabilized, mildew and stain resistant. Snap-in carpets use stainless steel snaps for longevity.
  • Details: Cushion bottoms are finished with a breathable mesh for a quality finish.
  • Details: Polyethylene moisture barriers between vinyl and foam keep seats from getting water logged.
  • Details: Roto-cast seat frames will not rot or break.
