new bolster seat/interior shot of Shearwater

Thanks for the e-mails, and the requests for interior shots
We have just finished the bolster helms seat pictured, currently working on molding for the rear panel with cup holders etc, the toilet is now fitted, in fill and cusion fit on top to make up the double berth.
we have been out on a couple of demo run's in the last couple of weeks and with the Merc opti 200 run in it reaches 62 mph.
We have just taken orders for two 8.6 soleil versions with the engine well and lower four person rear bench delivery april/may, and we have booked the sports boat and rib show for May.

Early days but seems to be so far, we look after 150 ish ribs at our yard, and took note of common customer comments, the chaps want a rib and to stretch the season , but wives expect a little more than bucket and chuck it , and jockey seats for 35K, it has taken two years and alot of head scratching to get to this stage.
The cuddy is great for familys like mine, I have three under four all go streight to sleep the second we get out on the water, we stick them below and get on with the trip and they wake up when we reach the stop. the wrap round sides and winscreen give proper protection from that wind chill dribbling smile you get after half an hour, and if /when the showers arrive the spray hood goes up easly and allows you to carry on home.
I didnt want to take up to much space with the cabin, just enough for the toilet a fridge box and odd over night, my own thoughts were if you were a keen on board over nighter then you probably wouldnt have a rib. I would personally prefure a B/B shower etc after a days ribing.
