    This one is quite different with a totally custom paint job on the hull. Really makes her stand out from the rest. What do you guys think? The caption in the video said that the video made the paint a little harsher than it is in reality which has a softer gradient to it... so keep that in mind with your opinion... so I think it looks really good!!! "Mustang Sally"!! Perhaps the same owner as the megayacht?

    I've seen it in person, it is indeed way too over the top and nothing I would want.

    From the video, it looks quite interesting but I don't know if it would look drastically different in person...

    Reminds me of the paint jobs you'd see on some "chollo's" low rider back in the 70's. Nice colors but nothing I'd want on a yacht.

    Love this 82 Viking, but is stead of taking the risk...., I would have ordered the 90ftr…

    (Many years ago, back in Holland, a friend wanted the same car as I had (black Audi A6 Avant) and the dealer only had a ‘pearl white’ one on stock (guess why), and he made the mistake of his life, bought it, and everyone looked at the color and asked him if he became g*y…so within 3 month, he tried to sell the car back to the dealer…and received less then half in return for a dark blue one… I see this happening here)

    I remember doing that on cars/trucks in the early 80s with Imron. Insurance companies later hated it since nobody could spot/match/repair it when needed (after a wreck).
    Lots of the color/reflective/fading paint jobs out there. Whole panel (hull side) has to be re-painted for just a small blemish issue.
    Yep it looks cool,,,(if your an *****) And non repairable.

    I'm betting the owner also has a 1983 GMC Vandura with Heavy Metal magazine styled artwork airbrushed on the side... :confused:
