I think I have only seen one and here in the US they were extremely expensive new for what you got.

Plus in my opinion, and this is just my opinion they are frighteningly ugly.

Herb Chambers in Lyme CT had one that I saw in person and for the record it was ugly. He ended up buying an outerlimits with 1075's

below the rub rail a thing of beauty, above the rub rail, I'll use the old line a "2 bagger". One bag for her face another for mine in case her bag falls off!!

Get rid of the bow rail would go a long way in cleaning up the look.

Agreed - the bow rail kills it for me as well.

I have to ask what type of boat is this - is it a yacht tender, a center console with a cuddy cabin or a performance boat??? I could never understand the deck layout from the first time I saw it. I always loved what the boat could do and think it's great but I just don't get who or what the boat was designed to do?

Over here IŽve never seen one...and I can see why.
Actually if it had a cabin and a upper deck like a MasMar33 sans the wing on the MasMar it would be a success and youŽd prolly see those strolling around even today like I did see one MasMar33 today...
Well a fast boat with cabin heat is darn comfy even Wintertime as our waters seldom nowadays freezes up.

Regarding sunseekers there quite few.
Personally I have been seen lately behind the wheel of a 48 Superhawk.
