As the designer of ALL Roth boats for the past three-plus decades, Chris Roth always has something new on the drawing board... literally. Every Roth design begins with Chris's imagination, expressed through his right hand. CAD rendering follows, then the plug build and finally the prototype phase, ensuring a perfect hull number one.

Here we see the reimagined, reengineered yet classic Roth-Bilt 18 getting closer to reality in our Massachusetts facility. These recent pictures show us preparing the plug from which we'll make the mold for the hull.
