I have never seen another like it. Most buyers stick to the norm, like a Catalina 30 for example. Aft cockpit, conventional layout.
That doesn't mean it is a bad boat, the design and underwater profile look good. Group Finot are good designers. But few are looking to stray from a conventional type of boat. It does look better at $8500. I wouldn't count on its limited production run to keep the price up for resale though. They built few because the buyers didn't fall in love with it. They're still not in love with it. But at 8500 I don't think it makes much difference if you like it. Just don't count on a crowd after the rare design when you do decide to sell.
