1949 Globe Mastercraft

The Globe Mastercraft, designed in 1945, was, according to Brooks Stevens, the first successful auto-styled boat ever put out on a production basis. As the original drawing at the of the page shows (in Ezra’s story), the Globe picked up and developed the idea of the convex sheer line, wrap-around windshield and integrated hardware, and introduced a number of other new concepts as well, all of which, when molded together, added up to a speedboat that was years ahead of the competition.
