In 1984 Bobby Saccenti started construction on one of the most successful and iconic boats builds of all time. The 41 Apache called “Warpath”. With the tremendous success of the 41 Apache, Bobby went on to build many more boats of different sizes and flavors, based on the successful design of the 41 Apache. Perhaps one of the most successful versions was the iconic 47 Apache. The 41 and 47 Apaches dominated the offshore racing circuit in the eighties and nineties. The boats were known for their brute strength and incredible handling characteristics in rough open ocean conditions.
Bobby decided to get together with a naval architect from the Netherlands, who helped Bobby design a stepped bottom boat that had the stability of the Apache with the speed of a stepped bottom boat...it was at this point, that a Chief was born!
