ABOUT APACHE

Apache Powerboats® is a premier high-performance offshore boat manufacturer led by Mark McManus, a respected master with over 50 years of experience in designing and building boats. Our boats are known for their quality craftsmanship and exceptional performance in the most adverse sea conditions. Each boat is built using ballistics-grade Kevlar and 100% carbon fiber in marine lamination, along with hand-laid laminates and military-grade resins.

Our boats are designed for customization to suit the client’s every want and need, from powertrain to navigation systems and interior upgrades. We offer a range of services, including maintenance, repair, restoration, and custom manufacturing. Our boats are built to exceed the highest standards of U.S. and European Coast Guard requirements, with safety and stability as primary concerns.

Apache Powerboats® has a track record of success, with Mark McManus personally playing a significant role in writing powerboat history. He was the first to successfully use Kevlar and carbon fiber in his hull designs to enhance safety and durability in high-performance boats. He has also developed and introduced various innovative features, such as building the first sit-down canopy, Deep-V, triple-engine super boat and pioneering the use of staggered engines using 18-inch to 22-inch centerline in both racing and pleasure models.

Apaches have always been a showpiece of exquisite quality, power, and offshore performance, with hand-painted artwork, graphics, instrumentation, and cockpit designs as unique as the owners. Apache Powerboats® is an excellent source for all intricate or difficult projects, offering complete restoration services and custom manufacturing and fabricating for all makes and models.
