Travis McGarry, SLIM Captain
"Having worked on performance cruisers since 2005, I have worked with David on many projects throughout the years. His key focus is improving the safety and performance of the various vessels to meet the demands. What stands out the most is David's integrity and dedication. He treats every project as if it’s his most important, resulting in near perfection. Boats are very personal to their owners and thus each boat requires something different to meet the owners’ needs. This is where David differentiates himself from the rest of his fellow colleagues. He applies the unique requests to satisfy the owners’ needs, and that sets the foundation for whatever he designs. Because of that essential component, David has always completed our design improvements while making the boat safer and faster. This establishes a high grade of confidence within the crew and owners to take the new design improvements to sea. David is Slim's official "Go to Man" whenever we have safety or performance questions as he has earned our trust 100%. “
Lloyd Thornburg, Owner of PHAEDO
“Properly executed yacht design and engineering services pay for themselves before you leave the dock. Failures are simply too costly in terms of lost time, financial impact, and safety risks. Davis McCollough and his team understand this, and I have found them to be a trustworthy partner in my yachting endeavors.”
Paul Hand, PHAEDO Captain
"McCollough Yachts has been the backbone in design and engineering of PHAEDO since our dismasting in 2013. The improvements in helm balance, boat speed, and sound engineering that gives you the confidence to push your vessel to it's design limits and beyond, are rarely found in this type of performance cruising catamaran - we have since proven all of this. Beyond the formulas of engineering, Dave McCollough has 100's of hours racing offshore, delivering and sea trialing performance mulithulls and this hands on experience coupled with his expertise in engineering and design make McCollough Yachts a no brainer for your next project, whether it be a 125ft performance cruising catamaran or a carbon fiber tiller for your Goat Island Skiff."
