How are some of the new boats we’ve featured in the past faring? Let’s see …

A Bang Up Job:
Bangarang, Spencer’s 87-foot, fully custom convertible launched this past February at MIBS, the same month she was featured in our Notebook column. The boat subsequently cruised down to the Dominican Republic under the watchful eye of Capt. Daniel Spencer. There she fished heavily for a few months before heading back up to the yard for some routine maintenance. Give a wave if you see her in your neck of the woods.

Back Cove 41Cruising Right Along: The Back Cove 41 (see New Boats Notebook, February 2014) has already become a big seller. The boat made a splash—literally and figuratively—at the 2014 Miami show, and since then four different hulls have shipped, to Annapolis, Charleston, New Jersey, and Washington state, respectively.
