New Scorpion

Its one hell of a nice looking boat, The performance is very good as well, faster than the new cabin boat and sea keeping is excellent as is the cabin rib.

Not sure how much this one cost but i imagine it was 120k +

I saw it when it was being built at Hven Boatyard. It is stunning. Talking to one of the chaps at Scorpion and I think he said it was over 160 k. It did look worth it though. Im sure it had twin 440 Yanmars with a pulsdrive unit on the back. It was shipped off to go on a superyacht I think
