Love the layout
Cool.

Not that I would spend 300k plus on a cruiser, but this is the most use of space I have ever seen, and twin BBC. Full bow rider, deck boat with a real full size cuddy underneath.

I see we had our eyes on the same boat .

I'm dying to see one in person. Nice to see someone's actually thinking outside the box at the boat companies now. For more of a cruising and sleepover boat, the new Four Winns is also pretty fantastic. Huge cabin/cockpit for a 30'.

Has this ever happened to you???

Here's the scenario.....

You stop at a red light in your brightly painted, loud, hot rod Mustang GT or Camaro - girlfriend in the passenger seat. A Saab turbo pulls up next to you with a yuppie driver, window up and AC running. He gives you the eye just before the light turns green...You figure this will be easy and you let the yuppie jump you out of the gate. Then as he's pulling you hard through second gear you grind the crap out of third while sweating bullets trying to get around the guy. Finally you barely pull ahead just before you get to the next light. Then, you make up some mechanical BS story to your girlfriend on why you didn't blow his azz clean off the road.

My dad was riding on the back seat that day on the poker run and he's 260#
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
HA! Pretty much the same thing happened to me. I know you all hate jet skis, but I took a girl out one afternoon on my Sea Doo RXP. I thought this was the fastest thing on the water! We used to meet by the damn near the evening and race at our small lake and nobody was even close. Well this one day I was hanging at the beach with a girlfriend and this lady who was probably 40+ and portly came up on some 3 seater sea doo. She kept checking my ski out and then asked me if I wanted to run them? I kinda laughed and said, I guess? So we pulled around by the dam and I thought I would be nice and give her a little jump and just blow her doors off. Well, she launched and I couldnt catch her! So we turned around and I told her lets race back, figuring I would launch hard and smoke her. We both left at the same time and she beat me by 3 lengths! I ended up cruising back to the beach with my tail btw my legs. That night I ordered a bigger SC and some other equipment but never saw her again.

I have 18 foot of beam on mine the hull is certified for 49 passengers. For go fast, I can pull the 18 Donzi up on the lift. Who needs a little stabbin cabbin when you have 3 staterooms anyway?

For the engine buffs, it has 2 1271 TI's and 2 15kw gens in walk in engine rooms.

I would not apologize for having a cruiser.
