David Walters Yachts is excited to announce that we have partnered with Front Runner Boats to bring their American-made semi-custom center consoles and offshore power catamarans to the Mid-Atlantic region.


Front Runner Boats: Redefining Excellence in Offshore Fishing

Front Runner Boats has swiftly risen to prominence in the sport fishing industry, establishing itself as a paragon of innovation, quality, and performance. Known for their meticulous craftsmanship and advanced engineering, Front Runner boats cater to severe anglers who demand nothing less than the best. With David Walters Yachts now representing Front Runner in the Mid-Atlantic, the brand is poised to bring its exceptional vessels to an even wider audience of discerning boaters.




Unmatched Design and Engineering

The uniqueness of Front Runner boats begins with their design. The hull, a crucial element of any offshore fishing vessel, has been carefully crafted by the renowned Erwin Gerards. Known for his work with top names in the industry, Gerards brings his expertise to Front Runner, creating a "Proud Bow" and a stepped hull configuration that offers aesthetic appeal and superior functionality. This design ensures maximum displacement, stability in rough waters, and an exceptionally smooth ride, making it ideal for leisurely cruises and competitive fishing.

Customization at Its Core

Front Runner stands out in the sport fishing market for its unparalleled customization options. Recognizing that no two anglers are the same, Front Runner Boats are built around the technology and preferences of each owner. Whether integrating state-of-the-art navigation systems or tailoring the deck layout to suit specific fishing techniques, Front Runner ensures that every detail reflects the owner's needs and lifestyle. This customer-centric approach enhances functionality and ensures that each boat is as unique as its owner.

Power and Performance

Power is another pillar of Front Runner's philosophy. In partnership with Mercury Marine, Front Runner offers several engine configurations, from twin setups to powerful quad outboards, ensuring that every boat has the thrust and reliability needed to tackle the demands of the open sea. This collaboration underscores Front Runner's commitment to using only top-tier components, guaranteeing impressive and dependable performance.

American Craftsmanship

Proudly made in America, Front Runner boats are a testament to the quality and resilience of domestic manufacturing. Each vessel is constructed with the finest materials, ensuring durability that can withstand the rigors of offshore fishing. This commitment to quality is not just about superior materials and craftsmanship; it's also about supporting the local economy and maintaining control over every aspect of production.
