Default Black Thunder 480 SS

Wow, didnt know they built a boat like this. Wonder what kind of speed you would get out of this monster with that setup? The deck is huge, must be like pulling a hull from the mold!

Nice cabin, but that thing is fugly! I'll take a used 50 Nor-Tech for 150k LESS any day of the week. Or just get a SeaRay.

Or a diesel Formula 400SS. There's a brand new 2008 leftover in Lake Tahoe for $345,000. The BT 480SS cockpit layout just doesn't work for me...

I completely agree. The windsheild is too far back and is at the wrong angle, the rise in the deck starts too late. It looks like someone was building a monster offshore boat and 3/4 of the way through they decided on a cruiser and did a hatchet job throwing it together.

That 48' Cig in the woods looks better than this thing...
