It’s Not Just a Boat – It’s a Bryant.
You roar through the water like it's Christmas in July. The whole lake is bobbing as one giant, family-sized present of laughter, thrill, and joy. Today, you're catching memories: hook, line, and sinker. You raise your glass to toast the sunset that's about to become the best memory of the year. All these days—countless more—are waiting for you. All you need is the right craft to get you there. For a select few, it's a Bryant.
Bryant strives to build the best, longest-lasting boats on the water, and every one of our building techniques is centered on that goal. Each craftsman has an average of 12 years’ experience in creating high-quality, hand-made boats. Plus, Bryant uses only precision-molded composite fiberglass and high-density polyethylene plastic in all aspects of construction. No wood and that means no deterioration.
Hannay’s Marine has been a Bryant dealer since 2008. With a commitment to provide superior service and products to our customers so they can spend more time on the water, Hannay’s looks forward to being your Bryant boating headquarters.
The colored outer layer of gelcoat is added, and a final coat of black is sprayed to help with opacity on the side of the boat. Bottom right is the top cap for a Bryant, which has been sprayed with gelcoat and will be flipped upside-down to make the top side of the boat.
Once the top and bottom caps are sprayed, the subframe is constructed and placed in the boat. It is then attached with fiberglass into the bottom cap of the boat. The voids are then filled with foam. This process is not required in boats over 20 feet but it is one of the extras you get with a Bryant. Notice that there is no wood used in the construction of a Bryant Boat. On the left is a sample of a Bryant transom, and on the right is another view of the bottom cap of the boat coming together. Note the hole for the ski locker in front and hole in the rear where the engine will be mounted.
After the gelcoat and fiberglass work is done the boat moves into the assembly shop. The boat comes into assembly still in two pieces. This is because many of the controls and wiring harnesses are easier to run while the boat is still apart.
Now its time for the engine install. This Calandra is getting a 300 hp GM 350ci V8.
At this point boats are moving down the assembly line where everything from the stereo to the steering wheel is installed. Finally, before your Bryant is shipped to us, the boat is meticulously cleaned and checked for defects. The boat will then be shrink wrapped and placed on a truck for delivery.
