Caught up with Tim Gallagher, sales director for center-console boat builder Deep Impact Boats in Miami. According to Gallagher, the CNC tooling for the company’s new 39-foot-long center console, which will be offered with triple or quad outboard engines, is being completed and the CNC tooling for the builder’s new 42-footer has begun.

“We will get under construction with the new 39 very shortly and the first one should be ready for the February (2011) Miami Show,” said Gallagher. “The first model will be fully open with center seating. We will follow up with a cabin model.”

Pricing has yet to be established, according to Gallagher.

“We have tons going on here,” said Gallagher, who left Cigarette Racing Team to join Deep Impact. “The main reason I came here is because of this company’s aggressive attitude, even in this economy. These guys are moving forward.”
