This is from a press release issued on behalf of Scorpion:
"So what’s different about the Sting?
The differences between the new ‘Sting’ when compared with her predecessors is that Scorpion is adding a whole raft of upgrades where such upgrades actually make a difference to the Scorpion ‘experience’ for the owner and/or driver and their family rather than being mere cosmetic ‘tweaks’. Lest we forget amongst the list of racing and endurance achievements and awards, this is, after all, Scorpion’s flagship family cruising boat.
One expects to inherit a superb design, exquisite craftsmanship and excellent handling when you become a Scorpion owner first and second-hand. Whilst the construction and hull design requires no tweaking from the original masterpiece, the team at Scorpion are providing a number of innovations to the quality and design of certain key design components e.g. the windscreen, the cockpit seating, the cabin upholstery and accommodation, adding durability, security and comfort to an already long list of tick marks.
With the ‘Sting’, you will also get some great new features including a lockable door to the cabin that will be fully lined and boast Alcantara upholstery; a new curved windscreen that is a higher spec overall, and provides even more protection than in previous models.
When it comes to adding comfort and safety in the cockpit, where once they were ‘bolsters’, now Scorpion is adding sport-styled seating that is electronically controlled to adjust to the right height just for you, as Jelley puts it so succinctly, “people are getting taller”.
In the cabin, there is the addition of a twin or double berth, recessed overhead lighting and flexi-teak flooring whilst in the Galley, there is a new Ceramic hob and cabin heater under an opening worktop."
Anyone got a spare couple of hundred grand lying around that they want to donate to a very worthy cause? (Me!)
