Had a closer look today at the local marina.
A very impressive craft with a definite functional design. Build quality and finish did appear very good compared to other ali products.
However, I am sure the owner has in his own mind the intentions for its use but I cannot see where it will really compete at an estimated £150000 price.
It would be limited for diving, accomodation will be compact and dark, ladder mounted on rear of frame astern of engines means clambering aground frame to get aboard after a nice swim, 4 300Hp suzi's will no doubt be relatively thirsty, eating area exposed to elements in questionable british weather, reportably able to put a quad bike or 4 motorcycles on foredeck (no crane on vessel so loading will be an issue) Helm position is still open to elements, which, should be raised enough to keep any chop out will not protect from rain.
I think if you want an A-B vessel for 6 - 8 persons there are more appropriate vessels and if you want something to go cruising on, again there are more appropriate vessels.
Will be interesting to see how far and how much use it gets this summer.
