We'll custom build a 37 Active Thunder with a full cabin; and sit down cockpit. The latest one still being built is a 5 pack of electric bolsters, with a drop in 6th bolster. It will have a different cockpit setup than any of the other 37ATs.

Full cabin and sit down boat just don't sit well together, as normally a sit down boat is designed as a cut down hull with a lower freeboard. Hence, you ended up with a very shallow boat, and very low headroom in the cabin, which does not make it very usable.

Imagine this, a 37AT with split front seats; the front seats are raised up due to a raised cockpit floor, but the center, between them; steps down so you can go into the normal sized cabin. The backseat is open to your imagination; but something like the below pics comes to mind. (Cabin pic is from a side entry boat, but you get the idea.) Get more details about this boat from PRA.

Havent been on a GTX SkaterV or an AT...

Heard the GTX is a very rigid ride and the 399 is the best ride... havent really considered "building" any type of boat. Want 6s for sure.

Stand up head Strip you pr1ck

Masher, the above pictured AT with 700s/NXTs is on Long Island. Do you want to take a look?
