The 52' Midnight Lace blends old and new into a classic look uncaptured by any other boat. The reversed transom, the sculpted stem with its stainless steel cutwater and tumblehome all owe heritage to the commuters of the 1920's and 30's.
The slippery Tom Fexas-designed hull slips through the water in a most modern and efficient manner. The ride in the Midnight Lace's forward cockpit is definitely wind in your face but very dry and great fun!
