Congratulations! Sounds like fun! I must admit we felt similarly hence the direction we went. Not to everyones taste of course but works for us. Roll on March then!

We test drove them both down at Dartmouth and Salcombe, and found the Brig to be the nicer boat, bit more lively and certainly not as heavy in feel, and then tried them both again, back to back yesterday at the boat show, in horrible wind, rain and a typical Southampton chop. Once again the Navigator came out on top, for us. I must say we have also had excellent customer service from both companies and wouldn't hesitate in recommending either.

Our order has been placed, for a 610 Navigator, with a 130 Etec, in black fabric impression Hypalon, grey gel with red seats and almost every option. We got a cracking deal and a very good p/x price. We are having it built for next March. We are also pondering whether to have a 150 etec on it

Would you have spent £100 more on it? Was it worth that much if they had been tougher on price? Just wondering its incredible what you can do with £100.

A couple of changes have been made to the order now

I'm now having red seat cushions, which will look something like this; (although we are not having the jockeys, we are having a flip bench, with more room behind)



And Evinrude have just released a new colourway, which wasn't originally coming to the UK, but Brig have managed to swing it, SO it has a 150HO going on it;




I think it will look quite smart

I had a good look at them at the boat show and was impressed. Looks great in those colours.
