November 2019 Recap

SOLACE Boats 345 In Water

November was a very busy month for SŌLACE Boats with hulls at three major boat shows— including Fort Lauderdale’s annual international show. Production of the award-winning 345 Luxury Center Console continues to ramp up as orders flow to the factory, while deliveries have begun here in the United States. Excitement is ever-growing as we race towards 2020 and all the boat shows that are to come. Discover the 345

The Magnificent SOLACE 345 Luxury Center Console Launching to the Next Destination

Press coverage came from every angle, with interest and writing from nearly all major publications. An excerpt from Boating Magazine is listed below:

“…innovation must translate to functionality. It does so with this design. Two anglers can fish side by side on the platform, which tapers from 42 inches wide at the transom to 38 inches wide at the aft end…The SŌLACE 345 proves that a clever and motivated boat-builder can engineer new ways to enjoy your time on a blue ocean and ­under a sunny sky…”
