Default POLL: Need opinions....

I am going to buy another 33' Powerplay. I am considering painting the boat I buy like this Tiger in the picture below. I love the paint on this Tiger. I personally think this paint job would look good on the Powerplay, because it is similiar (flat deck, fairing, etc...) looking to the Tiger.
Please give me your opinions..good or bad

Thanks OSO

I like it, but I think it makes the boat look smaller and would not be my preference.

Could that be done in Vinyl? If so then you can easily change it up down the road.

I am not sure about vinyl. I go to Havasu where it gets 115 during the smmer. I think the vinyl will leave a mark after a while from the hot sun.

Are you going to keep the boat for a long time or do you think you might sell it in a year or two?

If you're planning to keep it for a long time then definitely do whatever you want. If you might sell it in a couple of years, you might want to consider the resale with those graphics.

I personally like those graphics and think it would look good, but I also think that a more standard graphic could be easier for resale.

In the end it's your boat, so go with what YOU like.

I like it, maybe a little more paint towards the front would help balance it better. More of a slow fade to the front where it could dissapear. my .02

Beautiful paint job....It may make a 33 look stubby though....Longer straight lines make them appear longer....Doesn't really matter on a 42 !!

we did the whole sides of of a baja we sold. It was printed vynil, looked very very nice...BUT... The guy was a beginner driver ansd the vynil was scratched and teared in many places... Almost same thing with an experienced driver but was more due to the fenders rubbing on the sides when docking... So my opinion, small graphic, you can go vynil, big size graphic... paint it! Much more durable.

This next boat has to be a boat that I will keep for a while. It's too expensive to keep buying another boat!!
I was also thinking of having the sides painted black or blue, with the deck white....like these 38 PP's.
