    Cantius 45' is my dream boat which is why I haven't gone to the 40' Sundancer yet. Awesome pictures!

    Many thanks!

    The ATL Boat Show pales in comparison. Nothing but pontoons and bow riders.

    Looks like a great show. We went up to Toronto last weekend and it had a pretty good setup with some big ones but maybe next year well head to Cleveland to check it out instead.

    Dave, thanks for the awesome pics. What were they asking for the Regulators?

    This years show was definitely better than the past 2 year's. I'm glad that we went, only $11 a ticket.

    $2 to ride the ferris wheel was the best deal/bargain there!

    Thanks for sharing all the pics. I'm still trying to figure out this layout. What is that section in front of the guy in the red sweater that he has his hand on? Is there a walkway on the outboard side of that whatever-it-is?

    I have to admit that I'm definitely not a fan of all the euro designs that all the makers seem to be doing now. Nor am I a fan of the interiors of most of the boats. They look like they're trying to duplicate an upscale NYC apartment....square corners....flat, monochromatic colors, etc. There's not much in many of those interiors that looks like it's a boat.

    That is the Formula 350 CBR. The dash is hinged and is the entry to the cabin. Its basically a big bowrider with a cabin . Very nice fit and finish and innovative design.

    WOW, thanks for posting these pics, the Louisville,KY boat show is next weekend and it will be all wake boats, tritoons and 4 wheelers. We haven't had large/decent size boats here for years and we have a very strong boating community here with the Ohio River and the lakes - but it sucks not having any decent boats. I also agree that I don't like the stylings with sharp corners today!

    As a side note, all boats were open and welcoming, except...... the big sail boats. They wanted you to go to the front desk (wherever the hell that is) and obtain a boarding pass. No thanks, I'll just keep walking by.

    Could not agree more, and I suppose it’s just a matter of personal taste/opinion. I went to the Vancouver international boat show yesterday and was ..underwhelmed with the new designs. They had the new 350 coupe, 400, 460, and an L650 among others. It’s just as you say, very modern new condo like. Very “now”. I feel none of it is timeless or classic and will go out of style in a few years. Honestly from first glance I couldn’t tell the difference from one builder to the next. All the 35-50 ft coupe boats look the same. When I see a 2007 48, 2012 350, 2005 340 etc, I know hands down it’s a Sea Ray. There’s no mistaking the swooping “Sea Ray lines, the lines that attracted me to the brand in the first place. Now everything looks the same. Don’t get me wrong, the new boats are very nice and appear to be extremely comfy, but (if I had $500k lying around which I don’t) I wouldn’t buy one.

    I've always liked the Formula designs. Well built, nicely finished interiors, solid as hell. I guess I'm a little stumped by that hinged helm. it seems like it would be more of an inconvenience than a nice feature. If you had kids on board, they'd be in and out of the cabin (like kids always do--they can't sit still) so that hinged helm would be opening and closing all the time.

    Shrugging my shoulders here and shaking my head wondering "WHY?"
