they have gone mad, " I DOOOOOONT BELIEVE IT"! I would not buy this, would you? the only records the new owner will win is he or she undoubtably own the ugliest rib around and they will get the most laughs when they come into a marina .

This is my favourite design of console, protected yet open with sleeping area, yet the balance of console size to hull size looks out of proportion. In my, worthless view, there should be more space in front of the console. Suspect a 12m hull would look a lot better.

If you compare it too the Protector range they seem to have a better balance.

Bet the finish and design is top notch though.

Cheers

Mark

Looks like somebody has parked a Ford Ka inside the boat

Not very pretty compared to the rest of the range, but probably quite practical...

I would imagine the design and tooling costs will be considerable for this new boat and so quite a risk for them with something that is quite so 'visually challenged'. Agree with the comments about the Protector, the balance looks much sounder but fuel capacity is the problem with this boat so its all give and take, although for me dont think I would 'take' the new Scorpion...

Is it just me or is that a naked woman laying in the front of the boat?

Can't see for sure, but it doesn't look much like you!
