"Frantic" 2008 Potsdam Custom 18 Center Console is a beautiful limited custom boat with a great story to go along with a truly one of kind quality Center Console by Jay Potsdam.
Jay contacted me after I had listed the boat initially and filled in the questions that I and many other boating enthusiast only dream to come along in a lifetime. What a Gem this boat is and Jay Potsdam has given me permission to share the following information.
Jay Potsdam designed and built this beautiful Boat in his shop in Jensen Beach Florida in 2007 -2008. From the time he turned on the computer to completion was well over a year and a half.
It is all wood with fiberglass in and out (cold molded). He did a number of things to the boat because he never intended on selling it.
The spray rail edges have a metal edge- titanium encapsulated.
“Unless it is part of the engine, there is nothing in the build that is not stainless or that will rust”.
He remade the engine mounts and shaft couplings in stainless.
He used a cast aluminum oil pan for the engine.
You will find Bomar hatches throughout the boat and the glass, decks and bilges are all finished with unbelievable glass work!
The tankage is 150 gallons of diesel so she has big range.
She is equipped with a 6.2 single General Motors diesel, single screw and tunnel for minimal draft. She has under 400 hours on her.
To build the boat today with the craftsmanship and quality materials incorporated into her would be well north of six figures and she is available for half that amount.
