Their slips are next to us at the Miami Boat Show every year.
They are ridiculously expensive.
You must wear an ascot to board one.

That's as much as I know.

Thanks Tom...are you a dealer? I need general quality information, weaknesses (if any), customer satisfaction items, Sea worthiness issues, is there a better product from a competitor?.... in short a general knowledge.

Someone important to me is considering getting one......

Thanks,

They are great boats. But, they def are designed for specific use. The jet drive is great as it will allow the 38 to get into abot 20" of water. On the flip side the jet drive sucks in any kind of seas over approx 2'. The quality is top shelf. and the nice thing is there's not a lot of bling to break or wear. I've been on models with diff power but the last one I was on had Yanmar. Geraldo Rivera has a 38 in Puerto Rico. I was on it last month with him and it's a great day boat, but it's a very wet boat in the cockpit. Thats really my only neg point.

As far as cost of ownership, I always believe in brand names and the boat will def hold it's value. Is he looking new or used?
