I completely disagree

The plans for the open cabin version look fantastic - just like the bladerunner (watched the film the other day actually), and IMVHO the black cabin cruiser (although a little underpowered for a 11m methinks) looks the absolute bees knees.

(not so sure about that one for sale that had the twin crappy V8 Yams on it though)

Hang on, you're not grasping the concept of rib brand loyalty.

You need to wax lyrically about everything your brand does or produces, regardless of the fact it might look a dog or handle like a barge.
