ACY67 Features Bold New Design
Construction is currently underway on a new 67-foot convertible sportfisherman at American Custom Yachts incorporating innovative boat-building technology and a design unlike any other American on the water. The hull has been constructed on a plasma-cut steel jig utilizing ACY's traditional composite cold-molded process, but that's where the similarities end. The house and bridge are being fabricated out of lightweight materials encased in molded fiberglass, giving the new ACY67 a look that is distinctively different, yet truly American.
