A-Frame with Wakeboard towing point and liferings, with echomax on top, 2 x 220 litre stainless fuel tanks under the deck.

Electronics wise, will have the Smartcraft 5000 system, Garmin 2010c Chart Plotter and Icom 421 VHF.

Will post some photo's when I have some through.
Wonderful choice, you will not be disappointed, I have also got my clients to get a Parker, twin diesel (320hp) this week. What a hull!!! I did the initial trials on it in the big bad Baltic and knew then it would be a top class product, a lot of work went into that project from Andre and the Parker lads, well worth it, like the ideas you have on your spec, can't wait to see it, well done.

Thanks Dog, With Richard's Parker 900Baltic, your twin diesel (320HP) Parker 900Baltic and a single 320HP all Black Parker 900Baltic which I have agreed today that makes 3 in total for the UK market in such a short period of time. Not bad.

Boat looks interesting, and should like look very striking with the yellow and black colour combination, finished off with the twin Verados.

Look forward to seeing pictures of the finished interior layout and console / dashboard setup. What electrics are you having fitted ?

Thank you for your comments. I am going for the Garmin 2010c GPS Chartplotter, and the ICOM 505 VHFDSC, the Garmin will also be linked to the Verado command computer, so will give distance fuel required, etc.

Off next weekend to Poland for the last trip before she is put on a lorry for Calais. Can't wait.
