mines just 6m overall, with only a 2m beam - i think this is why it goes so well with only a 75 on the back - its like an arrow. it is however underpowered when loaded with people. great deep vee hull easily handles and cushions wave jumping. i too spend all my time driving stood up. i have a well proportioned single console which means that the steering is as easy to use either sat down or stood up.
