General Description

Forged out of necessity to navigate the unpredictable North Carolina inlets and offshore waters, legendary boat builder Omie Tillet added the beauty to the beast other custom boat builders have been chasing for almost four decades. Well ahead of his time, now sought after worldwide, Capt. Omie Tillet had an eye for the aesthetic of what exemplifies a Carolina style boat….the exaggerated bow flare, eye pleasing broken sheer, sharp entry, modified v-hull with minimal dead rise aft, tumble home and rake and round in all the right places.

Omie Tillet took an amalgam of knowledge earned working with some of the best North Carolina boatbuilders, along with what he learned from his previous builds, which culminate in what was his final masterpiece, built as the MARY 1 and is now the COVERAGE.

She has been constantly modernized over the years and will be a head turning, timeless classic for decades to come.
