New Build Inquiry

The Design/Build Process

The Whitacre 47 Hull #1 is currently in build.  Every Whitacre 47 begins with a completely finished, engineered composite shell structure.  At this stage, your hull is a fresh canvas to layout, design and finish as you want it.  We consult you through the entire design and selection process for composite or wood furniture, appliances, electrical, hard and soft surface selections, main cabin layout, mechanical, propulsion, and rig.   Every client receives a fully engineered final product specific to their specs.  Keep it simple and do the finish work yourself or load the boat with lavish factory finishes and equipment.  Your choice!

Depending on levels of finish and equipment, production time frames for a Whitacre 47 can take from as little as 8 months for owner finish upwards of 12-18 months for higher levels of factory finish.
