The philosophy of performance and craftsmanship is directly applied to the latest offering of Apache Powerboats®. By no definition are McManus Apaches mass produced. Instead, a limited duplicative production of hull designs made of 100% Kevlar and Carbon are fabricated to maximum construction techniques and overall quality. Customers then have the opportunity to outfit their hulls with a nearly endless list of options, finishing with the powertrain, navigation systems and interior appointments to suit their every want and need. Whether a boat is headed for contention on the Poker Run Circuit or your favorite cruising or fishing waters as a weekend warrior, each McManus Apache® is built to be a winning example of technology and craftsmanship. As with each boat produced by McManus, safety and stability are primary concerns. All boats are built to exceed the highest standards of U.S. and European Coast Guard requirements. Each McManus Apache is capable of withstanding the most punishing offshore conditions. Apache Powerboats® also provides maintenance, repair and restoration of boats.
