Lot's of heat up in this thread. We could use it this time of year.
Nortech knocked it out of the park on both of their 80's and didn't have to rely on Turkey to build their yacht like Skip attempted with the ill-fated 55. What was the thinking behind the "American Legend" *built in Turkey?......hahahaha classic oxymoron.
For the record, I like AT's and their unlimited options for change. Pat seems like he would go the extra mile to make sure you got the boat you wanted. BTW two Ciggy owners bought AT's last year (Customryder and that guy in Texas that built the blue 600 boat) but Cig doesn't have any client retention issues.......
Clark's refresh was a nice factory touch as well, can't see that being done in Opalocka!
So tell me, do you really find it SHOCKING that someone would make that move...REALLY???
And all I asked was exactly how many guys HE knew that went from Cig to NT and you chimed in. Is that thumping for Cig? It was just a simple question to see if he knew what he was bloviating about. I'm not shocked any time some moves from one brand to another; they have their resaons or needs change and there are alot of good boats out there. So why did you sell your last 43? Did your needs change???
And as for talking about AT why don't you read post 7, 8, 9???

In post 7 he simply comments that Cig will not do Ilmors so if he wants them he might have to look elsewhere.
Post eight confirms they wont.
Post nine he admits to being an old bastard.
They haven't come up with a new performance boat in years and the amenities on board are stuck in 1988.
Obvioulsy you are mistaken...that is the point; not to mention that you obviously like to have it both ways.
It ok for NT to build a sport boat but it is not ok for Cig to build a sport boat; it is ok for NT to build a yacht but not ok for Cig to buld a yacht. WTF???
I do agree the yacht Cig built was not their best effort; nor am I a big fan of the 49's styling.
