PLEASE NOTE: This vessel is owned by a client, and it is NOT FOR SALE.

A client from Tennessee has asked us to complete a full restoration of his 1996 Supra La Brisa. We're looking forward to working on this boat, since it is a little bit different from our typical restoration boats. Just wait and see what we are able to do with this vessel. It will be impressive.


Here are some photos taken before the boat arrived at our facility. We'll get more posted here soon.


Follow along in the comments below as we complete this restoration. I suggest sorting the comments so that the oldest are displayed first. That way, as you scroll through, the comments will be displayed in chronological order, and this will show a timeline of the work as it is completed.

This is one of the few Supra windshields we have dealt with, and I am glad! I would like to hunt down the assembly guys that worked at Supra in the mid-1990s and have some words with them. For some reason, they decided that the windshield, rubber gaskets, and the frame…

The dash switch panel openings have now been scanned for reproduction. We'll recreate the panels and add all new marine-grade switches and circuit breakers. It's going to look great!
