Frahs 17

The Frahs 17 was an SK type hull and came from the factory with an 11.5:1 Chevy 454, capable of over 80mph in stock trim. It was reviewed by Powerboat magazine, who approved it for "performance oriented families".

This may or may not be the same as the Stevens 17'; Terry Frahs purchased the Stevens mold when Stevens went to 18' boats.

DiMarco 21' Day Cruiser

The DiMarco hull was a splash of a 20' Spectra, but Sonny did a few minor changes to the deck. At the rear it is rolled rather than stepped like the Spectra and all around the gunnel at the deck there is a nice rolled recess, really looks good. In 1976 the Spectra that was used for the splash was still in Sonny's yard. Really nice boats and well built. I can't compare to Raysoncraft as I have never been in one or owned one. Probably doesn't ride as well as a Schiada as it has less deadrise.

This mold was later sold to Kurtis Boats and then to Canyon.
