    I really like the SeaForce SkyBridge concept. You can expect to see more of them from other manufacturers in the future...

    Boats ar produced by many of the same people that built the Rosciolli Donzi products. Nicely built and well engineered. I provided "Acoustiglas" laminated chem strenghtened glass for hull 2. Hull 3 on the way.

    People have a real love/hate relationship with enclosed flybridges on sportfishers though. I personally don't enjoy enclosed as much as open.

    Catmando, I have seen these battlewagons for the past two years at the Ft Lauderdale show. I may even have some photos to load (I'll have to check when I get home). They are monster fishing machines; solid, well built, very low production (i.e. as in one or two every year) and are for the serious fisherman (as in $$). Have not been out in one but seen several videos and runs very clean and dry.

    There is a local one around here with a green hull and it is very nice. I saw it at a show almost a year ago and was very impressed. It is definitely built for a serious fisherman. It had the feel of a much larger sportfish inside. Good layout and nice woodwork. It could of used a few more electronics, didn't seem to have very much on the helm besides the MTU displays. I don't exactly remember the price but I know it is up there.

    Here are some shots I took of the SeaForce at the Ft Lauderdale show in 2004.
    The helm is bare so it can be customized by the buyer (good idea).

    As mentioned in the above post, the helm of the SeaForce was bare. By comparison, here is the helm of the new (at the time) 74 Viking enclosed bridge. Notice the video screen on the left and camera scren on the right.
