Sure looks like a BT. Weren't they planning on brining out a 48-50' sport cruiser? This boat has a new stern, windshied (?) and tall bow rails, as compared to the 460.

PS. Sure looks like a lot of weight for twin Bravo drives. One may want to buy a few extra drives to have a spares.

I went through it in Miami last year. Big sport cruiser with tons of headroom. I did not really like the style but I am certain it would work for someone.

I think those are the Dual Prop counter rotating Bravos if you look closely. Those drives are not meant for high HP.

With the transom door I would assume that the engines are under the cockpit floor. The windage sail area with my 43 SC is bad enough, I can't imagine what it would be like with this deck. It does have a BT decal at the top rear of the gunnel's and does have the lines of the BT. I think maybe just a different deck tooled onto their std hull. Joe Murray
