Ultimate Power Parker 900 Baltic

Hi guys,

Had an amazing day out testing the new Parker 900 Baltic recreational line. This baby was equiped with top of the range Mercury verado twin 275 engines. The adrenaline rush was incredible, we achieved an amazing 55 knots top speed on 21" Vensura Props.
The hull gives an incredibly smooth and dry ride. This beast just grinds into corners even when doing very sharp turns at W.O.T. ;-)
The console with an integrated 2 man seat offers a wonderfull view for passangers whilst cruising and the sun bed on the bow..... well the women just love it ;-) here are some pics what do you think of it???

Very nice boat but the worlds worst jockey seats. I cannot believe that after the first design that anyone would have built a second seat, let alone put them into production.
Cheers

I wonder if the top speed is a little low? Seems an awful lot of horses for only 55 knots...

The main issue with the seat is that it's to narrow at the top. Combine that with hard foam and you have a seat that is uncomfortable even for a demo in the Solent.

The Parker is a very nice boat but you would come back from a channel trip thinking it was a very hard ride, if you sat down, when quite clearly that's not the case.

Its strange that the shape of jockey seat seems universal except for Parker.

That's about as much as I can write about jockey seats without causing my haemorrhoids to flare up!

Cheers

Mark
