    Postman,
    I just surveyed and accepted a 2008 59' in past 2 days. I've only operated it during sea trial but it handled great. Sorry I can't provide more personal perspective but I'm very happy with the decision.

    I'm also purchasing a 2008 55ls and would love some feed back. We love the boat . Helm seats are one of my issues they don't seem to be made very well as well as the simulated tiles in the heads.

    Of the ones I've come across, most things on the boat do not appear to be well made. Also many of the exterior hinges and latches appear to be undersized and not strong enough to last. The hardware on everything inside as well.

    Not sure, but I would think the pair would burn 55-60gph at cruise. Try to find a boat test on those engines in any boat, the fuel burn at cruise should be very similar, the speed will be different. Of which you can probably get from one of the sales sights.

    That looks just about right according to the folks who build the motors...
