Dealer just sent me some pics of my Max finally getting unwrapped!! I’ll get some better pics once I get there today but so pumped I get to crawl around and inside it now!!!





I think a certain sir mix a lot song is appropriate for the top photo in this post. That rear end screams DISPLACEMENT!

Thanks guys! Here’s a few more pics. Hard to fit the whole boat in the frame. I may do the delivery tomorrow if I can get off work. I’ll have better pics once it’s outside during the delivery.

Nice to see that their shoes are off... but why aren't they wearing white gloves on your NEW boat!?!? lol
Please tell me you didn't let them slide with their dirty tools all over your nice new interior.
Which looks amazing btw!! great color scheme

I do however really like to see the care and preparation that those guys are performing on your new baby.
Congratulations sir -- she looks great!!

That thing is beautiful, I love the final color scheme you went with! I don't always like the look of Flake, but that looks like small/fine flakes, as opposed to some paint jobs where the flake looks like a disco ball.

I hope to get our boat out of storage next weekend once I finish the stairs and have the boat lift installed, if I wait much longer, I'm going to start looking at new boats!

It is interesting to see what a dealer goes through to actually prep a boat for delivery.

Yes the service team takes great care of the boats and new deliveries!! I've walked through their service shop several times even before my boat was delivered and they were always taking good care of anyone's boat they were working on. Not only shoes off which was nice to see but they also put down material over the SeaDek not to get it nasty. They'll hand it off the their detailer after they're done prepping in the service department.

I am taking off tomorrow to do the maiden voyage and take delivery!!! Salesman and I will grab some lunch midday on the water at one of the marina restaurants. It will be hard to get some sleep tonight lol! Boat sounded so throaty when they cranked it up and ran it off the hose. I'll have some short video clips of that and walking around it.

Thanks again guys for the comments!

First mod for the boat. Saw these today at Bed Bath and Beyond while shopping for Mother’s Day gift. $20 motion activated battery operated LED lights that I’ll put in each storage compartment.

Very nice :)


What’s the reason the outer trim tabs have the actuators mounted like they are? Greater range of travel?

I wondered this too. The boat looks massive and heavy from the back. What's back there?
