We know there is more left. It's just finding them. We saw one on eBay a year or so ago. It was sold to a person from Florida. I was never able to get a hold of the person so if you are out there or anyone else who owns one, please hit the CONTACT US button at the top of the page.

NOVA 24's

Here is the SuperNova24 race boat today.
Owner- Mark Robinson      Year/builder 1968/Nova Marine        Hull# SuperNova race boat
Pasadena, MD                               Purchase date - July 2009

Owner- D.J.      year/builder - 1968 / Nova      Marine hull # - 2404
Fort Lauderdale, FL            Purchase date - 1995
This Nova24 was found 10 years ago with trees growing out of it but it was all there. It still has the original rebuilt Holman / Moody engines with jack shaft Vee-drives set up. 25K later and D.J. laughingly says it floats and runs. It looks real good to us.

One from north of the boarder.
Owner-David Ivey         Year/builder 1970/Nova Marine            Hull# 2443  
Port Rowan, Ontario, Canada         Purchase date - 2005
This Nova was sold to David as a 77 WellCraft.
After a little investigating and some help from from friends he found out differently.
Brownie even said, "That's my old demo, I think, It obviously was finished at my shop before the sale."

I had to have it.
Owner-Robert Cort           Year/builder 1970/Nova Marine         Hull# 2449
Warsaw, MO           Purchase date - July 2007
From Robert, "When I first saw it, I knew I had to have it, even though the paint job was totally hideous.
I cannot believe how good of shape its in for a 37 year old boat.
Both the original engines are in it, they are twin 235 hp Holman-Moody 302's"

Owner- Name Withheld         Year/builder 1970/Nova Marine         Hull# 2453
           Purchase date -  June 2011

Plan is splashdown in Spring 012.
Also plan to install 375hp 496cid, 8.1L that followed me home from work. It will be coupled to a Volvo Penta DPS Duoprop, which are both in the barn, ready to go.
Hopefully, I dont upset the purests out there, but I will be cutting most of the cap off to make a center console.
A Console from a 242 Albemarle (or similar) will likely be installed, on top of new stringer grid & deck.

From the first Nova24 to almost the last one built.
Owner-Craig Stanfield          year/builder 1971/Nova Marine Hull#24122
Downtown Huston, Texas               purchase date - 1994
Craig was in Jr high when he was "fixated" on the Nova 24 from magazine ads an expose's. Many years later he would get his opportunity to buy one. He is the third owner of this boat. It has twin Holman/Moody 302 Fords and Vee drives. According to Craig "the Boss awaits a restoration along with 3 wooden Century's". We know which one we would do first.
