i always kind of liked a white interior, for upholstery anyway. When it nice and clean and brite it always looks great plus it won't fade over the next couple years. If you get any stains brake out the clorox.....

purple and white always looks good, with a splash of yellow and orange and teal, with a hint of red and blue and a few shades of purple............did i already say purple, maybe violet or lavender for the brave. i think that on the classic offshores such as apache , comanche, cigarettes they need and look good in bold and bright colors, they need to make a statement ( as if they dont already ). im sure it would be hard to pick a design and color choice. thats probably while im in an all white, inside and out
fountian with the exception of purple carpet...........did i say purple. im sure what ever you come up with no matter what color scheme, you will be making a statement pulling in. bold and bright has my nod with a comanche i would stay away with the indian theme that needs to be reserved for apaches. just my 2cent
good luck

wicked stylized indian theme perhaps. But SUPER stylzed almost so you can't telll its an indian theme. Maybe something tribal would be cool.

Smart move going with Mitcher T. He painted my boat, he does amazing work. I would trust his opinion on colors. I had him paint my boat of off a rendering he e-mailed, I told him to do what ever he thought was best as far as colors were concerned. Judge for yourself.

stay with primary colors, red ,blue, yellow, green, etc. they will not look dated in a few years, remember teal and the pastels? sometimes simpler is better
