Anyone have first hand experience with these relative to other big CCs? Pluses and minuses?

Fit and finish isnít that great judging by the one at my marina. But the owner said it was a LOT cheaper than a nor tech, enough that you could redo what you didnít like and still be far ahead.

Yeah Iíve gotten on one but canít recall seeing anything out of place. Any examples of what youíre referring to?

The price is right. Iíve been on a 390 NT and was very impressed, the 450 is just too much.

I've been on their 38 and didn't see anything wrong with the fit and finish. Not sure why the 43 would be any different. I think the 38 is the best looking in their lineup. The lines look just right with that long nose. An all pearl white one pulled into Redhead last spring and it was a stunner.

rub rail wasnít straight, caulking around it was a mess, combing pads didnít line up well, pretty much anything that had silicone to seal it looked like it had been slapped on by a high school kid. Nothing that was difficult to fix, or caused issues for them to use the boat. Mercury was to blame for that lol. Lost a starter the first day it was delivered, second or third time out blew a lower and that was it for the season. Never got a lower for it. Boat sat the rest of the year.

Im assuming one of the outside motors lost its lower from surfacing?
