Comments: “Of all the models that are out there, I just like Calvin Beal’s the best,” said Black Pearl owner Phil Black.  He’s had some experience prior to this: Black’s last boat was a Calvin Beal-designed South Shore 34.  Black said (besides being the home for the model line that bears Calvin’s name) he chose SW Boatworks to finish his 36 “because their work is top-notch.  They’re fussy about everything they do.”
