That is a Beautiful boat.

I am also curious what speeds you are getting with the 525.

Thanks Jan

You seem to have sent out a lot of open bow boats lately. That really supprises me. The paint on the new boats is really killer.

Audiofn,

I spoke with Dave Hare at the Detroit Boat Show and asked him the same question. He told me that both the 28 and 32 open bow models outsell the closed by a significant margin. I was surprised but in retrospect it makes a lot of sense - how many people *really* do a lot of overnighting? I'd guess that most performance boats are dayboats, head to the raft/bar/hotspot in the morning and head home at night. So an open bow = more room for people.

If you're going to spend weekends on the boat, you'd be a lot more comfortable in a boat that is built with that in mind.
