Demo The Kraken

Demo The Kraken

As anyone who’s ever watched an episode of “Howe2Live” on the show’s YouTube channel knows, performance boat enthusiasts Mike and Sarah Howe live large and adventurous lives. So it stands to reason that for open-water cruising expeditions they would need a large and efficient, seaworthy vessel with plenty of living space and a performance edge. But the Maine-based couple couldn’t fine one that met all their needs.

And that lead Mike Howe—an inventor of note—to build a 52-foot cruising catamaran he dubbed The Kraken.

Released in 2023, The Kraken is the subject of an entertaining Scrapyard Media adventure video.

Of course, Howe—a serial entrepreneur—didn’t just build the vessel, which is powered by four Mercury Marine Verado 600 outboard engines, for himself and his bride. Deep Sea Kraken (aka DSK Marine), the brand he founded, will build them for a few select owners this year.

To that end, Howe is offering by-appointment demo rides out of an undisclosed location during the Miami International Boat Show, which runs February 14-18.

“DSK will be producing only three Kraken vessels in 2024 and we’re excited to find their new owners,” Howe wrote in a post on the Howe2Live Facebook page. “Very serious buyers only—please email demo inquiries to [email protected] for reservations and a secret-but-famous launch location.”
