    A matter of taste I suppose. The same boat made the Rogues thread.

    If you liked the pictures rhen you will like the video even more!

    Art of Kinetik Hedonist from Motor Boat and Yachting - YouTube

    While style is debatable the workmanship and attention to detail in these boats is nothing short of incredibly beautiful!

    And if the styling does not grab you then how about the 2.1M pound price tag?

    I think you have to look at boats like this as art work on water, like the wally power 118, unusal yes, but hats off for being creative. for example the helm station is sensational! The detail is very impressive, hence the price tag!

    I think it was wrong for putting this one in the rogues thread, as the idea for that thread I thought is more for the punters building... errr boats.

    If we're talking out of the box creative, innovative, and awesome, I think you have to add the Cheoy Lee 76 Express to this group.

    But thats a production boat with a more of a conventional design formula (like sunseeker). IMO

    Dash looks to be hot in the sun, with those dark colors. Wonder how the viewing angle of the screens work out.

    I agree it is a beautiful display of workmanship, very sexy, but the side view drawing brings back the memory of 1950's customized, tricked out, pimp your ride (take your pick) Mercury cars (running in reverse).
    It's a great feature of life for so many varied taste.:)

    The tender gets to me, at least the other two has some kind of practicality to it...

    Also, who's the goose that modified the Merc G55, just ruined :rolleyes:
