"Edendriver was designed by Seph Limehouse, a chief designer at Scout Boats in South Carolina, at his home in Johns Island. His passion was working with his hands. In addition to the Edendriver, Seph built a kayak, a flats boat, a sailboat, several tables, stools, our bed and our home. He spent a lot of time in our barn creating. I know he felt peace when he was working out there. Even with a chemo drip on his side, he would be in the barn — if not physically able to work, he would just sit or work on drawings. He was an amazing man who cancer took from me way too early. Thankfully he left me with his greatest creation ... our daughter ."
Hull #14 built in Maine is rolling off the line this week. One of the most striking things about Edendriver is the tumblehome hull.

The molds for the build are complex and must be split to free the hull during the build. The video shows the process:
Puffin Boat Company is building five new Edendriver boats for model year 2023. Each of these boats will be well equipped with Yamaha F70 outboard, hull color, console color, stainless side rails, Yeti 35 cooler seat, advanced electronics and audio, hydraulic steering, and designer Sunbrella cushion sets. Here is a spy photo of the new helm and designer cushions of the first 2023 Edendriver rolling off the line...

Our crews will be running the Edendriver on the Penobscot River later this week, and she is available for immediate delivery. The first one rolling off the line is available for $46,489 plus tax. Trailer, delivery, and additional options will be extra. This Edendriver highlight video will inspire you!
Once the Edendriver is fully tested, it will be on display in Belfast at our Don't Be Scared to Buy a Boat sales event running through Halloween.
