quite like a Gucci Edition 37 Aronow - time to dig out those pastel suits and loafers and run the Don Johnson 5 o'clock shadow electric razor over your face, then hit the water!

It's actually a pretty slick looking boat - anyone know the history of these boats? I dont' remember reading about them in "The King of Thunderboat Row" - I'm assuming that Don built these during one of his times away from Cigarette?

and it's got a Gucci purse price tag. Bet it will take a beating in the rough.

There weren't many built...I've seen one other 37 and it was here on Long Island and was red...pretty cool boat.

There's a 45 and a 47 at Falcon now and the 47 looks like an overgrown Midnight Express---hey Bing! It being completelyu refitted and has a pair of big ole diesels and Arneson drives.

The 45 is for sale and has triples---it's all white and just arrived from Florida...i've got to get you guys some pics of this bad boy...the lines are exactly like the Gucci pictured above.

I had the privelege of viewing that Gucci boat up close & personal---climbed into the cabin, etc.

A gorgeous boat, but some of the gawdiest color schemes you'll ever see. I must admit, the 14kt gold hardware fixtures blended well with the rest of the colors!

riskybusiness,

Funny you should say that, I thought - in the pictures at least - that the interior looked surprisingly modern. Beige / black is a pretty smooth combination.

Of course, pictures don't always tell the full story....

That 47 is at our marina it has a huge set of props. It needs some t.l.c. What speeds did it run?

LOL! So true about the eighties!

If that is a 1990 model then Don didn't build it. He was killed on Feb 3 1987. The day.........the muuuuuuusic died.
