Looks awesome...Great Job OL

Performance numbers look outstanding.

Few complaints though:

1. Not a huge fan of the paint especially the two matte black stripes down the side (just my opinion)...could be the pictures
2. Rear hatch integration looks incomplete. I am used to nice free flowing lines from OL. On this model there looks to be a notch in the rear. Not a fan of that.
3. Also I dont like how the shiny air scoops contrast with the matte black sun pad. Looks odd. (Again could be the pictures)
4. Massive overhand for swimplatform

Positives:
1. Awesome seats
2. Windshield integration is superb. I dont think you can make a windshield look any better.
3. Interior looks spot on OL. Clean and refined.
4. Sharp looking hull and great lines from the bow rearward...aside from the rear

Looks like a Dodge Charger inspired hot rod boat to me, and I dont necessarily mean it in a bad way? Not sure? So minus the bustle it is a 27' +/- running surface on a lightweight boat with what appears to be a VERY aggressive running surface (notice how wide the chines are?). I have no doubt that it is a runner, but I gotta wonder about the ride quality in less than ideal conditions.

Without question it will make a fun, hot little tender to rip around in occassionally for those of you who could afford it!

Wow, looks fantastic to me! Maybe it's the pictures, but it looks longer than the specs suggest. Super clean looking and no doubt a screamer!

Like a lot of OL paint, I'm not crazy about the paint, although I appreciate the simplicity of this paint-job.

I've obviously never been in one, but for all practical purposes it's a super lightweight hotrod... honestly, do you really expect it to handle the big water like a 38'+ offshore???

It looks like a fantastic bay or lake boat to me. If I was concerned about offshore ride quality, I'd probably look for something a lot longer and probably heavier!


Regardless, fantastic job Mike and crew at OL!
