About the Show
Building on what started 30 years ago with Florida Sportsman’s first installment of One Man’s Dreamboat, a popular series of articles in the magazine featuring readers and their custom boat projects. Florida Sportsman has teamed up with Marine Customs Unlimited in Stuart, FL to bring the pages of the magazine to life in Florida Sportsman Project Dreamboat. Join the crew from MCU for boat restorations, custom rigging, budgets, and watch boating dreams, become reality.
The show not only follows custom builds and restorations at MCU, but also has a bit of a DIY element by showing intrigue multiple step repairs and service jobs where viewers can learn from. Such examples have been fiberglass repair, gelcoat refinishing with wax and buffers, rod holder installs, trim tab installations, painting tips and more.
If you are interested in having your boat featured in Project Dreamboat, if you’ve already completed your dream, and would like to be considered to be featured in the One Man’s Dreamboat segment please email Boating Editor George LaBonte, George@Floridasportsman.com. Each season we’ll feature a variety of inshore, bay and offshore boats where the owners have spent hundreds of hours both thinking about the best systems and applications of the latest technology to make their “dream boats” come to life.
If you don’t have the time to build your own dream, but have the vision, bringing a boat to MCU may be your best shot at realizing your dream. And if the timing works out, we may be featuring your build on one of the next episodes of Florida Sportsman Project Dreamboat.
