These aren't spi photo's, they are nothing more than free advertising for your dealership.......

Call it what you want.
At least it's a peek at a new boat available, and some info on new things in the market.
I welcome that information, and I wouldn't slam it as an "advertisement".

New engine covers from Merc? Don't like em...maybe a carbon fiber style one would suit.
Boat is Hot and I love the new cabin.
Not that 85 is slow but will it have a "Blue" motor option?
Scott, post a transom shot since my only FL trip this winter will be Disney.

Of course its a shameless plug.

I like the engine covers. Anything is an improvement over the old ones.
I don't like the paint job, but I like its speed and the upgraded cabin.

Thumbs up New 33

Will post more pics soon. Should be a great piece. Blue motors will be an option but I would suggest jumping to 35 if you do that, not to mention you also get full stagger configuration in 35. I believe the retail market will be set with the 496 like the 35X's.

There will be cowling color options for this boat.

That would be cool if they matched the graphics of the boat...hint, hint.

What speeds are they seeing with the 525's in this one? And are there any plans to do small block motors?
