Good God... That is a helluva boat. For 1.3 million I would buy a house, truck, new Corvette, all new Internationals and a very nice CC.

All that...and it's still a center console. I don't get it. All the expense of a big boat and none of the benefits.
Faster

Quieter (4 strokes vs diesel)

Sexier (debatable)

Id imagine for hardcore fishing itd do better as well.

And if you look at the pics it has a nicely equipped cabin with a small galley, head, shower and berth.

I would jump all over it if I had the means. But if I had that kind of money Id be dead from all the hookers and blow Id be plowing through before I got to really enjoy it.

It's a bear. For a bit of perspective I went out in the garage and measured out the beam of 13'..........good gravy. good thing 7 marine came out with a 627 HP outboard.

The boat would be amazing for some things but there are some things that can never overcome a nice above deck cabin and clean transom. Sitting below deck in the heat and rollers sucks IMO, having an above deck A/C is pretty much heaven.

Also, I love to bottom fish with 10+ friends and bottom fishing with outboards blows compared to bottom fishing with a clean transom. Same goes for fighting pelagics and other forms of fishing.

Not to mention, over double the odds of engine failure, outboards don't raise fish on the troll, most likely no mid range trolling speed, harder to get a clean wake for trolling, if it's rough or windy your getting wet, maneuverability will suck, can't back down, and the list goes on. Only advantages of an outboard boat is speed, and you can trailer...and they took trailering out of the question. How many serious offshore fisherman run outboards, given a choice?
