Saga, the latest from North Carolina boat builder Ricky Scarborough, recently made her splash in Alexseal Fighting Lady Yellow. A custom designed 60’ sportfishing yacht, Saga turns heads with her long sleek lines and bold color. Faired and finished in Alexseal topcoats, she is complimented by a full teak transom, cockpit & toe rail, which accentuates her Alexseal Cloud White deck and bridge.
Scarborough Boatworks got its start in 1977 when commercial fisherman Ricky Scarborough Sr. began building his own boat. Over 30 years later, Scarborough has completed more than 80 projects from 25’ to 85’. In 1993, Ricky Jr. joined his father, and in 2010 Ricky Sr. fully retired and passed the baton to his son. Ricky Jr. is now taking the family business to new levels while maintaining the legacy and quality of what initially put Scarborough boats on the map. The company has utilized Alexseal products on at least six of their recent custom boats and have been impressed by its many attributes. According to Ricky Jr., “The Alexseal products are easy-to-use and the support staff has been great. Tripp Nelson is always eager to listen and worked to implement wider packaging that made it easier to scoop out large amounts of fairing compound.” While a small detail, this valid suggestion from the applicators was implemented by Alexseal and has led to more efficient use of the product for many builders around the globe.
The dedication and attention to detail that is given to every custom build by Scarborough Boatworks helps to ensure their vessels offer decades of offshore enjoyment. Likewise, with proper care and maintenance, their Alexseal coatings will provide many years of like-new appearance and resistance to the harsh elements.
