    It has a look that harkens back to the 1950's. I like the look.

    The idea about the boat is to mix old and new design, modern underwater-hull mixed with lines from the 1950s runnabout and moderna speedboats.

    As you probably know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so take this personal opinion with a grain of salt... ;)

    I have an aesthetic objection regarding the squared windshield, which somehow doesn't fit well (to my eyes) with the rounded lines of the rest of the vessel. A windshield with rounded corners would imo be better integrated into the general style you have choosen.

    I also don't like too much the transition of the hull into the transom platform. Seen from the stern, it recalls a vision of a woman with no bum or no hips, imo. The sheer becomes too low and narrow in the aft. In the profile view, a reverse sheer falling down all the way to the rear platform gives an aggressive look, but is also rather difficult to transform into a good-looking transom. I find more sexy a less inclined sheer and a well-defined yet streamlined transom, like (for example) that of Riva Iseo boats:

    On the other side, I do like the finishes and your choice of materials and colors for the cockpit.

    Like I said, these are my personal opinions. If the owner is satisfied with the boat, it's the only thing that counts at the end. :)

    Cheers
