Every once in awhile a visitor to a boat building factory is able to sneak out with some surreptitiously-taken pictures of a new boat in its earliest stages of creation and send them to us. We love publishing these “espionage” pictures. Such is the case this week with snap shots of the Crusiers Yachts 470 which were taken a few weeks ago in the company’s factory in Oconto, Wisconsin and smuggled out. Like many builders this year, progress on the 470 was slowed because of the Great Recession, but we are glad to see that work has resumed on it. We think that the Cruisers Yachts 470 is sure to be a benchmark in it’s class for a number of reasons.
