Scorpion Sports cruiser to understand just what makes it so special.

I wouldn't describe the hard tops as Gin Palaces - and for that money you could probably have a Hunton 37 and that's one hell of a machine!!!

I have been on a Targa 37 which is near enough.

I am NOT knocking the Scorpion - just wondering how they can justify the price when you can get much more boat for the money.

Yep... I've been out on a Scorpion Sportscruiser in an F10 at 50kts+ and it's a helluva ride. If you're a sceptic then get yourself out on one. If you don't have the contacts then let me know. If you're not willing to get out one one before commenting, then quite frankly, you're like a virgin saying that sex is overrated.

And quite a few people do, because that's what they want. Horses for courses . . .

Easy. They have no problem selling all the boats they can make. What more justification do you want?

You don't want to buy one, which is fine. I think most people have got the message now.

From what I understand the order books are full for the cabin boat.

Maybe Graham should put the price up

Cheers
