I quite like it actually. I wouldn't want to go round Britain with it, but it's something a bit different as a family runabout.

The styling isn't as challenging as the larger Zars which are definitely an acquired taste! I haven't been out on one, but I have looked at a couple and the build quality and finish seems to be pretty good.

And for posterity here are a few of the photos from the EBay ad which will disappear in a few weeks.

Look at all that storage!

Me no likey!

I know they are positioned for access reasons but I would prefer the helm seat and console to be positioned centrally!

Not really targeted at the SR fan club! I've always thought the Zar's looked 'thought through' - someone sat down with a functional list of requirements and tried to include them all. That might have ended up with a boat that looks a bit different but which might actually be quite practical for the target user.

That said if I had 40k to spend on a 3 yr old 6m rib with 150 horses I'm not sure that's where my money would be going.
