Well ..this is a massive boat!...I got to drive this boat for awhile and the fit and finish is awesome. this boat is designed for either gas or diesel engines and will move out quite well on either...
the boat I tested was gas and it flat out moved...when we first fired the engines...they sounded like Diesels!!...deep throaty sound coming from the exhaust...the Dock on command is an awesome feature that allows anyone the ability to move a boat anyway they wanted while docking...
the colors and dash are impressive as all get out.....all the gauges are right where you need them and room to add more elex.

when you approach the boat you can instantly see this is a massive boat designed to entertain. the cockpit is definitely people friendly. built in speakers and kickers..the stereo system is completely MP3 compliant...meaning no disks at all...just add a memory stick or your ipod...this boat had teak swim steps..one lower than the one built in to the boat....there are 2 huge lockers for electrical chords and fenders.
stepping thru the transome your greeted with a roomy cockpit and very nicely done carpeting.

You step up one level to get to the helm...and then down the ctr hatch to the salon. The Salon is gorgeous...there is beautiful cherry wood below and more storage than you can imagine.....the galley is well laid out ...

the fwd masters cabin has a ctr berth and steps up on each side.

the engines can be accessed by the engine hatch that is electrically operated and with a flip of the switch..it can be opened to access the engines and genny or any other systems in the engine bay.
both engines have remote oil filters for ease of maintenance.

this boat rode great...it was comfortable and went on plane at about 2800 rpm....but for me it was hard to control. The throttles were not synched and I had trouble figuring out what was happening until I figured the stbd engine had to have more throttle than the port....once I did figure it out..the boat tracked straight as an arrow....as a matter of fact I didn't hardly use the steering wheel....want to go left while on plane...add a little stbd engine power......right...add some left engine power....I know that was wierd but it worked...

the boat is gorgeous...with the dock on command system and all the amenities...this boat is beautiful...

nice wide walk ways along the sides for easy access to the foredeck and the railing goes from bow to stern....just an awesome boat...but of course those gas engines are thirsty beasts and will set you back for a number on fill ups...but if you can afford this boat...the price of gas isn't going to be an issue.....

I''m trying to get some pictures loaded but something is goofy...I'll get them loaded this weekend for those to see...
