Sunburst Drift Boats are designed and built by Jeremy DeVries,
Sunburst Drift Boats are made from Joubert Okume plywood enclosed in fiberglass and Raka UV epoxy. The bottom and chines are built from aerospace honeycomb Plascore and enclosed by 2 layers of Kevlar and fiberglass. Raptor Bedliner finishes the bottom for excellent rock protection. Essentially this is a fiberglass boat with a wood core, creating a light weight fishing boat that will provide years of trouble free use.
The interior features an innovative walk around design with all 3 seats on 360 degree swivels (a first on the market). Each angler has plenty of deck space and cup holders for their favorite beverage. The bow and stern are identical and rounded (also a first in the market). This allows the boat to be rowed equally well in either direction improving quality fishing time along your favorite river bank. Sunburst Drift Boats are always paired with: Sawyer Square Top Oars, Dynalite Shoal Cut blades, Cobra Oarlocks, Regal Anchor releases, Crossfire Automotive paint, a custom Enduro Boat Cover, Adams trailers and a #30 Pyramid anchor. They are finished with 3 coats of automotive UV clear coat.
Sunburst is the name of my home town on the Hi Line of Montana! I only build 1-2 boats per year.
Price: $30,000. 50% deposit is required to start construction.
Each boat takes over 500 hours of time to complete! These are handmade, in my shop. I have built 10 of them so far, each individually custom built for the new owner. There is no kit, or instructions so you will have 100% design input! You pick everything!! The craftmanship is only limited by the steadiness of the builders hands, decades of rowing experience and your imagination.
Plan for +/-1 year from deposit to delivery.
