We have delivered/coached on board most of the boats in the range and in particular hand over to/train new members on the myboatshare boat.

It is now available as an outboard version:

Doug - you post started really well... but it didn't come to the "reasoned opinion" I was hoping we would hear. I realise you have a slight vested interest not to slag it off, but:

1. how do you feel it handles the waves compared to say a traditional rib - hows the ride/handling
2. are you impressed or disappointed with the finish quality
3. its obviously targeted at the weekender market - do you think they have done a good job, or have they made any compromises that have gone too far.
4. if someone came on PB2 course with you looking to buy a boat for "family fun", "weekend cruising" in reasonable conditions, but perhaps going further afield (cruising to channel islands, scilies, scottish isles) do you think you would automatically suggest this/ encourage it if they brought it up/ neither encourage or discourage it/ or actively suggest they look elsewhere?
5. Do you think that costing something around 70k it is reasonable?

That Orgasmo is stunning. Real shame they didn't do something about the interior

Yes, stunning. The girls on the Strider are not half bad either.
Talking about Sacs reminds me, when I was selling my hard boat (a Grady White), this guy who owned Sacs was at the same yard looking for a largish Grady White. I remember asking whether he was dissatisfied with his ribs. Can't remember the answer, tho., or whether he bought one.

I wouldn't worry unduly about an Alfa Romeo diesel. It's a FIAT. Don't worry about that either because FIAT supply all diesel engines to Vauxhall/Opel (with the exception of the 1.7 which is the base for the Cummins/Mercruiser diesel)and Saab. Personally I did 185,000 miles in my 1.7 FIAT Uno nearly 20 years ago and the only mechanical fault it suffered was when the stupid driver let it run out of diesel - 3 times!!!!

I know a chap who moves bodies around the country (legally) and has done 260,000 miles in his FIAT Ducato and some relatives of ours who have a furniture making business in Garda in Italy use an IVECO Daily and have done over 300,000 miles in the last 3 years using the same engine as the Ducato.

Hands up all those who will travel 300,000 miles in the next 3 years on their boats.

All true,

especially for the vans/trucks, however, not so good carwise for use in high mountains. we burned out the turbo on ours during the first year, going up and down (about 3,000 feet) twice a day.
