A also notice there's been quite a bit of price creep since they announced it so not quite the interesting deal that it was.
It is still an interesting deal, if they change that interior colors and it seems they do, you can see that on one of the movies the interior is different, with wood instead of all that white but what happens is that on an aluminium boat the price is less proportional to the size than in a fiberglass boat. Now the price of the 45fter, that one is really interesting for a 45ft boat. In fact I have some difficulty in understanding how they can make a boat with that quality, in aluminium by that price.
