    They are neighbors of mine in West Michigan, taking it down in the fall, winter in the Keys and Bahamas. Not sure when they're returning and/or where they will eventually slip it. I was on it when they first pulled into GH...beautiful boat inside, steers it with a joystick, loaded to the gills with electronics and such. Definitely stands out! The blue is a wrap....

    Sorry I misread your signature as being a 48DB, but your reasons for the bridge versus the Sundancer are one of the reasons we are contemplating the move as well, the view and light in the salon on days when it's too hot/cold/wet to be outside all day is really nice.

    I just don't see many enclosed bridge Riviera's currently listed and have never seen one with my own eyes here in the Northeast. I have a Maritimo that winters in the same yard as me, and know of 2-3 more in the immediate are that we have seen various places.

    Thanks for the perspective.

    It’s made by Absolute. It was docked a few times in Charlevoix and we also saw it on Mackinac Island. Quite honestly, I think it’s the ugliest boat I’ve ever seen. But what matters is that he and his family love it and seemed to be enjoying themselves at the marina. Oh, and I’m sure he thinks my boat is ugly too, so as someone already said above, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.....

    That Navetta is truly ugly but have you seen the interior? It's really beautiful! Makes you think that you could live with the ugly... I haven't seen one in person but would be curious to see the level of fit and finish.

    Not going to talk about the looks, it is taste specific... But I agree the interior is nice, looks very comfortable.

    Good for them pursuing the Loop!!! I hope it fits under the bridge in Chicago, or it will be a round trip back to Grand Haven. It looks to be over 18' tall.. I googled it can't find a height anywhere..

    I think it's a pretty badass looking boat. I probably like it because it's 'atypical'. That is a lot of boat for 1.3M. I sure wouldn't want to pay his insurance or dockage bill!

    Holy Crap Bill. Your boat looks amazing in technicolor. Time to change out that dreary black and white picture before it starts snowing again.
