Smokin’ Hot Custom Boat from Canale Marine

Photography By: Tony Nguyen

Canale Marine, in Buford Georgia, was founded in 2005. With over 20 years of experience in the marine industry, Tony Canale took his passion for powerboats and his gifted intuition for making boats run their best, and then created a business around his lifestyle. Offering any services needed on a boat from bow to stern, Canale Marine specializes in repowering packages (both custom built engines and Mercury Marine stock power), fiberglass repair, custom paint, custom stereo installations, wakeboard tower installs, custom onboard electronics, under water lighting, custom cabin LED lighting and custom interior fabrication and upholstery. One of the most impressive offerings from Canale is the management of two Offshore Race Teams. Currently racing in the Super Boat International Series, Canale manages both the Sheds Plus Offshore Race Team (sponsored by Sheds Plus of Homestead) and the Team Kilt Offshore Race Team (sponsored by Tilted Kilt Pub and Eatery). At the events and at the shop, Canale builds, maintains and repairs each team’s boat during the race season. Recently, the Team Kilt boat won the Manufacturing Production-3 Category at the third annual Thunder on the Beach Space Coast Super Boat Grand Prix on Cocoa Beach, FL; Proving where the team stands among the industry leaders.

When avid boating enthusiast Joe Amodio was searching for someone to perform a complete overhaul on his 42ft Cigarette Boat, he chose Canale Marine for the job. Being very meticulous with his boat projects, Joe knew that Canales reputation would offer him a flawless product, mechanically sound performance and assurance with a builder that stands behind his end result products.

Starting off the overhaul, the Triple Mercury Racing 525 Engines were removed and completely rebuilt to ensure that they were in 100% excellent working condition. Not only were the engines perfected internally, but every piece, part, nut and bolt was painted or powder coated for a true show winning finish. Literally, just seeing the triple engines in person leaves a person in awe at the work of art performed. To add some beast to the beauty, the three engines are pumping out a combined 1,575hp, bringing this 42ft  missile to an on water top speed that would give a person goose bumps at just the thought of it! With the engines installed, the exterior hull fiberglass was perfected and then sent to Canales trusted painter of choice, Mike Lewis. Known for his ingenious designs and fundamental perfection in his paint work, Mike used the multiple colors, shadings and extremely detailed ghosted in artistic shapes to create a masterpiece worthy of hanging on a art museum wall, if that was possible! Attention to detail abounds and no compromise was made in the paint work covering every inch of the boat and its triple axle trailer.

With the most crucial pieces of the puzzle in place, the crew turned its focus onto the interior, the complicated electronics and custom lighting of the 42 XXX. Blue and green underwater lighting were installed to set the mood for nighttime cruising, and for showing off the triple outdrives that are putting the horsepower to the water. A Memphis Marine stereo system was custom installed into the sides, rear panels and forward cabin of the interior. An Alpine CDA-9886M head unit, with separate wired control pad, sends signal to three Memphis MM5.750 five channel amplifiers that are tucked away in a hidden compartment in the cabin area; these send ample power to a total of 10 Memphis Marine speakers throughout the boat. With two 12” Memphis MM12D4 subwoofers under the rear seating area, two 10” Memphis MM10D4 subwoofers in the lower rear side panels and six Memphis 8” MM82 coaxial speakers in various custom made panels, not only will shoes be removed before boarding this boat but the stereo will rock your socks off with its acoustical vibrations. Goodies such as usb flash drive adaptors, Sirius satellite radio and HD Radio add to the listening selection while cranking the tunes on the lake. When Joe is navigating his way around the water, two separate Garmin GPS systems can be used for accurately charting the waters. The Garmin 740 touch screen unit is mounted to the right of the steering wheel for easy access and the Garmin 758 unit is mounted to the set of motorized steps that double as a door to close off the forward cabin if need be. All of the embellishments were wrapped within a beautiful custom upholstered interior designed and installed by Fineline Marine Interiors. Mixing materials such as blue colored carbon fiber synthetic vinyl’s, smooth white vinyl’s and custom multi-colored Cigarette logos embroidered throughout, were a true compliment to the level of craftsmanship found in other areas of the boat.

On the day of our photo shoot, when the engines were fired up at the marina where we dropped the boat in the water, every person within a ¼ mile came closer to get a peek at the engine driven quake that was rumbling the well known Holiday Marina. Joes 42XXX is truly an amazing boat built by an amazing crew over at Canale Marine. With the help of his team members Chris Powell and Ronnie Hannah, Tony Canale was able to once again build a superior product, and deliver it to a loyal customer. The owner and his prized Cigarette watercraft are, without a doubt, to be envied by many.
