I'm with you. Sure wish someone who was there in person would post a few pictures so we all could see what all are posting about.

Nobody ever said the engine wasn't cool. The hype leading up to the boat unveiling is what sucked. That & the boat is just a Cig with some new power. It has AMG on the side of it & that is about as far as the "AMG inspired" theme goes.

I saw it yesterday in person. My opinion the "Strip Poker" theme boat was better then this one. I got pictures of it and will post later today.

Let's not forget that the AMG/Cigarette collaboration is still a big deal. Skip is one of the few people that could have pulled it off. And, Cigarette is still the king worldwide when it comes to brand recognition in the performance boat industry.

Default Amg Cig

With so many beautiful Top Gun's running around, you would think the factory could come up with a boat that isn't down right FUGLY at least until you pop the engine hatch. Talk about a work of art!

Actually AMG built a twin turbo V12 that was over 600 hp in the SL65 and the S65.
However AMG had nothing to do with the new Mercury power in this boat.

Long live the king of theme boats MTI !!!
