Not a fan but would like to see some other angles and in the open water.

Being able to see the back of the bridge monitors shows a lack of attention to detail and it looks like all of the glazing is clear, I think I would want some privacy!

I think the buildings look better than the boat!

I keep looking at the video and it still hasn't grown on me. I think my main dislike is the superstructure, it looks like someone has dumped a rather cheap and nasty beach house on top of the hull. I agree the Mac monitors on the bridge do look crap from the outside as well. I can't see this being an easy boat to sell on (assuming the wife doesn't like it either).

I just want to know WHY!!!??? Surely he's got enough money to pay someone to design a nice one.

Still I bet it's nicer to be on the inside of it looking out, rather than on the outside looking in.
