"This is one of the nicest new products that's come on the market in a while"-"oustanding handling just like the other Bullets within the Howard line up"- Powerboat magazineDesigned for the performance enthusiast as a dual purpose family high performance Poker Run Boat or an all out APBA Ocean Race Boat, the Howard 36 BULLET is the perfect blend of style, comfort and performance. Designed by Michael Willen, Award Winning Designer of the 25 and 28 Howard Bullet - the Fastest Single Engine V-Bottom Stern Drive Ever Tested - and Powerboat Magazine 4X Boat of the Year Award Winner, the 36 Bullet is built utilizing the most up to date advanced Ventilated- Dual Stepped Hull technology available today. The 36 BULLET delivers speed and performance as only a Howard can. Easily attaining triple digit speeds in excess of 110 mph with Mercury Racing 700 EFI motors (side by side motors in a fully loaded open bow version to boot) the 36 BULLET will out perform anything in its class and is available with side by side or staggered motor configuration. The potential for extreme speed is limited only by your choice of power. Race designed electric drop out bolster seats, with built-in lumbar support, hold you comfortably in place regardless of water conditions. The cockpit can easily accommodate six or eight (with the optional second row of stand-up bolster seats) along with a full size rear bench seat. Howard’s innovating styling and technology features a full one piece molded-in inner liner encompassing both the cockpit and cabin allowing for a stronger unitized construction and a cleaner finish. Cabin accommodations include a full size V-berth forward and U-shaped wrap around seating in the main cabin which can convert to a double bed making sleeping for four a reality, not a dream. Cabin amenities include a concealed toilet, sink w/pressure water, Corian counter tops, electric blender, mirrored storage cabinets, ice box and indirect lighting throughout. An optional entertainment center includes a flat screen TV w/DVD player and an upgraded amplified stereo system w/surround sound. For those who truly appreciate and demand luxurious quality and performance, there is nothing finer than the 36 BULLET.
Construction:The HOWARD 36 BULLET is 100% composite wood free construction using only the finest materials available. We start with full blown 100% vinyl-ester resin and Knytex knitted Bi and Tri directional glass fabric. The entire hull is cored with 1” Diab foam (imported from Sweden) as are our floors, sundeck and full inner liner which is bonded in place with Plexus, the strongest bonding agent available. The transom, stringers and bulkheads are all made of Penske Board Composite Foam encapsulated in glass. This method of construction is very costly but results in a stronger, lighter boat. All stringers, bulkheads, floors and fuel tanks are installed while still in the mold to insure a perfect fit. The mold cure time is four weeks to insure proper curing and strength without distortion. All hardware is grade A aircraft quality stainless steel. Howard’s absolute insistence on quality and meticulous attention to detail has produced the finest performance boat available.
