That's just silly. If I had $600k to spend (which is not as much as it used to be of course...) I would not go for something like that - its an impressive technological achievement I suppose but for well on the wrong side of a quarter of a million pounds I would be looking for something with a roof - somebody here has just bought a commercial 14 metre catamaran with twin 500hp Cat diesels for less than that and would have had enough change left over to buy a 9m Parker for nice days!

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...

Well... Who said they have _only_ $0.6M to spend? LOL

Nice boat BTW. I thought CZ7 is expensive. Now I know what is "expensive".

...Well the next time a buddy says to me "you paid how much for your boat?" , I can tell them about less that 1.7 % of what the U.S. military spends on a single zodiac.

Again, if I had a budget that could accomodate that kind of money for a boat I'd probably opt for an FB designs Tecno 42 instead (or maybe a 55).
