    Build Process
    From the builders website: HOW WE BUILT OUR BOATS The Paul Mann difference


    Experience and expertise counts

    No Carolina custom builder offered longer experience combined with greater expertise: Over thirty years in business and a lifetime of training, engineering, design skill and specialized resources.

    Unparalleled customer service

    When you purchases a Paul Mann boat, you received constant support year after year from Paul Mann. All too often that doesn’t happen with other builders.

    High tech and higher craftsmanship

    From the structure to the systems, exactly the right materials in exactly the right places, all put together with flawless craftsmanship.

    55 feet and up. Only.

    Paul Mann specialized in 55-foot-plus yachts. And Paul Mann was selected as one of the “Top 50 Sport Fishing Boats of All Time” thanks to “great performance and beautiful interior design.”

    A true custom build

    No matter the specification or requirement, Paul likely has flawlessly designed and engineered it before. If not, no one had greater skills to achieve your goals.

    Performance like no other

    Running numbers on the last Paul Mann builds were far beyond expectations and were unmatched by other builders.

    Frame and plank, or jig

    You could have built your boat hull with your choice of the classic, traditional frame and plank method, or a jig build. Either one created the perfect shape.

    A proud bow and crown

    The unique, unmistakable look of a Paul Mann derived in part from the special beauty of a beefy bow and distinctive crown. A characteristic window cut identifies a Mann from a mile away.

    Award-winning cabinetry, design, and joinery

    Mann is by far the most awarded wood craftsman in the niche through interiors of an entirely new level, offering dazzling combinations of burnished wood, superb cabinetry, and lush fabrics.

    A few at the time.

    Some builders attempt to build many boats at once. Paul much preferred to build one or two at the time–no more than three. It’s a better way to focus on efficiency and more complete attention to detail.

    On time and on budget

    Nothing is more important. Paul delivered on time and on budget each and every time.

    The hull characteristic you want

    The subtle “convexity” of Paul’s various hull designs ensured the performance for the conditions that most affect your primary end use: fishing, trolling, and running in your area’s typical seas.

    A delightful building process

    Suffice it to say, the build process was superior and great fun for families as Paul created their masterpieces.

    The Paul Mann work of art

    The best can only be Mann made. Your Paul Mann will always be the best of the best.
