Here we go....this is what starts all the $hit.
Why the slam ?
I'm not gonna get drawn into the typical response.." bring your Baja down here and I'll whip your a$$ in the rough water " .. but why incite Apache owners ?

Man, this stuff is too early...its not Winter until tomorrow.

Arrow Re: Boats Compared To Cars

I tried and can't do it...not comparable to cars on a one to one basis.

But like with cars you have production and custom builders. The price range varies a lot more with offshore's than with cars. Every boat is "branded" with the company's definition of what it stands for and says to the public which translates into "image". Speed; Styling; Quality and Durability are the three key variables.

Having said that here is what I think each boat stands for as portrayed by it's company and owners:

-Cigarette..."A legendary Obsession"

-Formula..." A tradition of excellence" (Until Troutly bought one )

-Fountain..."Join us in the winner's circle"

-Baja........."Speed changes you"

-Pantera...."A nimble boat that handles the rough stuff"

-Active Thunder..."A combination of performance and pleasure"

-Outer Limits......"The art of high-performance luxury"

-Sutphen....."Safest fast boats"

-Velocity....."Excitement comes standard"

-Sunsation...."Building boats worth owning"


Advertising defines a brand they say and this is what they want us to "feel" when thinking about their brand through advertising.
