Default Need opinions for paint on new 30ft cat

I just got my first 30ft Liberator tunnel today. I'm gonna do a custom paint job and an interior to match. It will have a pair of new 300XS outboards. I'll probably go with a candy marble scallop style job just to make it different. I need opinions on colors. Since it will be for sale, I'd like to make it appealing to a larger group. Here's some pics, then I'll post pics of some of the others I painted with scallops to see what you guys think of the design.
All opinions welcome. Mainly need color opinions. Thanx, WILDMAN

Here's the rear compartment. I had a flat floor put in and it will have snap-in carpet. It's 4ft 8in x 8ft 4inch. The 2nd shows the center pod. This has completely eliminated the porpoise and made it so it actually can now carve a turn.

These are the scallops I've done. It's what I'm thinking for the 30.

This shows the marble red. The last two are pearl orange/black and silver flake. I call it the Harley boat. I like the red/black and silver one, but I'm also thinking Orange marble/ lime green marble, and black

I prefer grafics that flow from the back of the boat personally. The heavy paint on the front with white transom makes it look nose heavy to me.
Just mt opinion for what I like in a paint job and would buy. You asked .

I think you should paint a gator on the side.

I personally like the paint schemes you are going after. Here is 30 Motion I painted. The custom engine covers balanced the boat from looking nose heavy.
