Sneak Peek—Stephen Miles Design’s First Paintjob For A Fiery DCB M37R

With a paintjob almost complete for a DCB Performance Marine M37R catamaran owned by professional trophy truck racer Bryce Menzies, Stephen Miles has moved one step closer to his stated goal of “painting them all.” The 37-footer is the first DCB model Miles has painted at his shop in Owensboro, Ky.

Stephen Miles Design is almost finished painting its first DCB catamaran.

The boat should be heading back to the Phoenix-based custom catamaran builder for rigging and interior installation in roughly the three weeks, according to the painter.

Though Miles described his collaboration with Menzies on the catamaran’s color scheme as “pretty limited compared to a lot of clients,” he enjoyed their interactions.

“The dude is stoked,” Miles said. “He’s like a little kid.

“I did work a lot with Tony (Chiaramonte) at DCB,” he continued. “He is absolutely awesome to work with and just such a cool and humble guy.”

Miles has not totaled the hours he and the team at Stephen Miles Design have invested in the project, but he knows the number is substantial. Menzies and Chiaramonte had hoped to have the cat ready for the Desert Storm Poker Run event, which starts tomorrow in Lake Havasu City, Ariz. But there simply wasn’t enough time.

The finished product should be on hand during the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout in late August.

“I love making my customers happy,” he explained. “Tony and Bryce would have loved to have the boat for Desert Storm. But with DCB’s move from California to Arizona during the time we were trying to get things scheduled, it just couldn’t work out that way.

“Bryce will get to run this boat quite a bit this summer and get lots of seat time and for a couple months,” he added. “Then hopefully I’ll  get to see the boat all finished and running during the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout in August.”

Next up for Miles and his crew is a panting a 42-foot Intrepid center console. A graphic makeover of the well-known Holy Smokes Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats SV 43 sportboat will follow.

But for now the painter is focused on finishing Menzies’ DCB beauty.

“This was our first DCB,” he said. “I’m hoping there will be a lot more to come.”

Said Miles, “I love making my customers happy.”
