If you see them at any boating event just walk over and meet the Statement crew nicest people you'll ever find and thats right they will take you for a ride.

The ride is pretty much what every on else is saying. In short.. awsome.
I had my demo ride in the Keys during the Races. I will eleborate more on the boat, design and the "Statement Boys" after Thanksgiving. Look for it, but for now.. the concept is truely new and unique... however even with out the "Air cockpit" the hull still need to have more recognition as a well designed performance hull. The price is always relative and if 500K or 800K, one needs to ask.. Do I wan't to be one of the manny? or one of the few.?
I have the "one of the few boats" and with Statement, you will be among the few.. not the manny.
(more to come soon).

They use airbags with I don't know how many air tanks. The owner can make them as firm or as soft as he wants, just like a truck's airbags.

I hope they do their big cat the same way.

Well bro if you like the V that much maybe it's time to trade your Skater for the Statement cat!

solid boat very stable at 120 plus and the cockpit comfort is definitely unlike anything else- super guys- they will definitely give test rides.

Well I certainly look forward to hearing more about this boat! I have heard NOTHING but amazing reviews on this boat.

PARADOX- Believe me, its not a matter of "not wanting to be one of the few" I am just a "little short" of the 800K needed to do so! LOL!
