Each and every boat that comes out of our facility is built to last. We started this company with the end in mind – to build the last boat you’ll ever need to own. The Stuart23 is built using a grade of materials and finishes not often found in a boat of this size.

Like all of our models, this boat is built with over 150-years of innovative design and meticulous construction.

Unlike other hulls built by larger production builders,  our rounded bilge concept is designed to keep as much wetted surface in the water as possible as often as possible. This allows all of the continuously rounded surfaces to flow through the water.

Rounded Bilge Concept

This hull experiences relatively little bow rise when coming on plane. As a result, as sea conditions worsen the helmsman can reduce the speed of the boat and still maintain the proper running attitude for the boat to perform as designed.

Confidence In Motion

This unique design gives the operator the feeling and experience of driving a much larger boat. Due to the relatively flat running nature of the vessel, this gives both the helmsmen and passengers a noticeably better ride.


We set out to not only build a one-of-a-kind boat, but also one that would be equipped with an array of features not found on any other boat.

Under Deck Overboard Drain System

This completely customized feature is utilized for all hatch gutters as well as the cockpit sole drains

Magical Keel Design

Equipped on every boat that leaves our production facility, this feature allows for the utmost predictability in directional stability while running as well as at rest/drifting.


Equipping your new vessel with the right amount of power is what we do. Using our years of experience and research, we’ve defined the right amount of power needed to push our boats in even the worst of conditions.

Yamaha Powered

We are exclusive to Yamaha Marine outboards and equip each and every boat that leaves our facility with the right amount of power.


At Stuart Boatworks, it’s all about you. We don’t want to build the boat we want, we’d rather build the boat you want. As that is always the case, we have an endless list of customization options ready for you to build your next boat from the top down.

Start At The Top

When it comes to the type of roof you choose to cover your cockpit, the choices are seemingly endless. Choose from your choice of No Top, Bimini Top, Surfboard Style Hardtop, Low Profile second Station (stand on the console and thru the Hardtop), Folding Tower (stand on top of the Hardtop) and more.

Accessorize As You See Fit

Possibly the best part of the process is outfitting your vessel just the way you like it.

From electronics such as joystick controls, autopilots, radar, or multiple MFDs with multiple transducers we’ve got it covered. When it comes to outfitting the perfct fishing rig, choose from up to 3 livewells, up to 3 massive insulated fishboxes, electric reel outlets, multiple rod holders located where and at the angle you choose, or outriggers from 15’ to 22′ in length.


Finish At The Bottom

When it comes to seating and flooring options, we;’ve got the configurations you are looking for.  Choose forward seating, no forward seating (flush deck) or coffin box forward.

Outfitting your boat’s floor with SeaDeck or Teak flooring are also available.
