“With years of experience between them in building premiere sportfishing boats, it’s exciting to see the Highground boys bring their enthusiasm into starting their own production company.  I’m confident their boats will shine through with the same attention to detail they’ve already shown in the sportfishing world, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with them to design a boat we can all be proud of.”

True to the Finest Marine Standards

From the High Rocky Cliffs of Maine to the Highlands of the West Coast of Scotland Highground Boatworks is proudly located in Stuart Florida and owned by partners John StDenis and Martin Currie. The Highgrounds of our childhood are where we got the name, achieving the high ground in life can be seen as an advantage.

Highground Boatworks is a boatbuilding company in which every process is guided by our passion for fine workmanship and our love for the Sea fairing craft. We are a company that works squarely in the enduring traditions of the world’s best boat builders, innovates with modern technique and uses the finest materials available to produce a beautiful boat—one at a time. We will build your boat with you, not just for you.

Vacuum Infused Composite Hulls and our Cold Molded mahogany planked Hull are only the beginning of Highground Boatworks commitment to the finest in marine craftsmanship. We have spent many years and countless hours at our company in Stuart Florida, researching and manufacturing vessels and parts of varying sizes. At Highground Boatworks we are lucky enough to work alongside some of the best Builders, Riggers, Designers and Architects in the industry today and we truly believe that all aspects of our 32cc will reflect our years of determination and dedication to the boat building industry and our craft.

From hand-lofted boats on a plywood floor to 3D computer modeled hulls with CNC cut parts, we have seen firsthand the developments in boatbuilding and what they can deliver in terms of our structural integrity, weight distribution and product consistency.

Each of HighGround’s vessels is built to John and Martin’s exacting standards, honed over their decades of working side-by-side with some of the finest in the industry. In the HighGround 32 CC, they have created a boat whose style is unforgettable, its quality, is unmatched, and the ride, unrivaled.

Highground Boatworks 32 cc Composite/Kevlar

Our 32 CC is constructed using a vacuum infused resin process that provides us with consistent weight, strength and structural integrity into every part of the boat. We take every step possible to ensure the lamination schedule and structural integrity of each one of our boats meets and exceeds the latest marine standards and requirements. Below the waterline we laminate Kevlar into our hull skin to ensure impact resistance and provide you with the comfort and peace of mind to handle the unexpected.

“Highground Boatworks, high standard of workmanship and attention to detail along with their extensive experience in the construction of sportfishing boats has been a joy to work with and I believe is a great basis for a boatbuilding company of their own. I’m confident they will continue to build their excellent reputation and achieve great success. “

The Craft of Cold-Molded Hulls

The strength and integrity of the HighGround Boatworks 32 Cold Molded Center Console, springs from its core: the hand-built hull, constructed in the classic cold-molded process with pure mahogany planking, fitted and laminated by hand. That triple-planked mahogany hull has an incredible strength-to-weight ratio providing a core that is impact absorbing, smooth riding, and takes shock loads more efficiently than a traditional foam-cored composite hull.

The cold-molded process begins with every new boat built, new jig up on the shop floor and precise attention to detail at every step. It’s the preferred method of the finest custom boatbuilders. HighGround Boatworks builds each of its vessels with the highest standards of craftsmanship and construction. They know that’s exactly what their clients expect and deserve and that’s what they deliver. That is The HighGround Boatworks pledge.

With sportfishing in its DNA, The Highground 32’ presents striking lines, hybrid bow flare, smooth broken shear transitions, and a tumblehome hull with intermediate side rails. It’s an elegant vessel that means business on blue water.
