Great package. I am not sure that I like how the windshield goes all the way to the engine hatch either.

This looks like a variation of the old 47' from the early nineties. I liked the appearance of the older boat better because it had a proportionately longer deck. I just cant love the cab forward look of most newer boats.

(I even like the fairing blending into the engine hatch area)

That boat is sweet. I am glad to see a variation of the windscreen. It looks unique.... and it will look great from back to front as you pass people!

o.k., the more I look at it the better I like it (the windshield). Need to see the boat in person to make up my mind.

Right and lets not forget they will sell $30k cheaper new next year to really undermine the resale on them!!!

Here's a 1992 / 47

No worse than losing 200k on a new cigarette in 3 years. How much did you
pay for that awesome tiger your runnin around in? How much did some poor
S.O.B. pay for it new? Fountain? Cig? All the same poor investment in my book.
You dont buy them and expect them to appreciate in value.
