This is the demo boat that they will be using.. Preston said “It’s not for sale”. Mike said the price is in the mid 170’s.. lol

They have sold everyone they have built so far as I understand it.

Boat looks nice! Some definite improvements over the old ones.

Other than that dark colored lounges (which will cook people in the summer) I love it. Maybe a supercharged 383 instead of a BBC would be nice.

They used alcetaur fabric it is going to stay a lot cooler then what they normally use and will last long and will not crack the only bad thing is you can’t vacuum it you have to blow it out and then wipe with a wet micro fiber

Yea not feeling the color or that new fabric people are starting to use. Not digging the key placement and the digital screen sure is far away from the driver. For some reason the whole design of the driver dash and colors scream Retro to me. I do love Magic’s just nothing about this one. For that reason...I’m out

That thing is gorgeous. What kind of MPH do they expect with that power setup?

Believe it or not they claim alcantara is actually cooler than white vinyl in the sun..

I haven’t personally tested that but I can say I’ve been in several dcb’s with dark alcantara and it wasn’t hot like I thought it was going to be.

I don’t know if he’s taking any orders or not but he’s built I think 10 or so of them so far?
It was more of joke than anything.

I just half ass followed the thread about Horizon starting to build them and it seemed like there was never a roll out of the brand or even many completed boats.

Howard 288 and 255 both do that
It should be an industry standard if you're going to build a walk through. God forbid if they ever put an 8.2EC in this Magic, you'd have to pull the engine just to service it.

So I can get behind the boat being a demo. $170k. Got it. But what's the plan for a white gel, vinyl seat, regular gauge c!uster, HO/ basic powered boat? Or is the new magic the deck boat for $170k like it or leave it?

I was told that 175 is base model by Preston but that could have changed since he told me in Aug

Not crazy about the interior. Aside from the fancy interior and extra speakers it still looks like the basic magic at a outrageous price.
supply and demand.. there was a 496 used boat that sold for like 115 this summer.. 10+ years old used vs new?

I know what I’d be doing for an extra 60 lol

170k base model before options I can believe... The way the demo boat is optioned, there is no way it’s 170k.

Dave you are right about supply and demand but that's just stupid to spend that kind of money on a boat that cost less when brand new.

Not that I'm in a position to buy, but those red lines in the interior make it way too busy. That said, the fact that the ones in the Sea Deck don't line up at the front locker would make me crazy. Sweet boat other than that.

There is a step there causing an illusion. I suspect the lines do match up.

Maybe a speaker for the vessel view or wireless android auto/car play?

Boat looks nice..Couple things jump out at me

I would take the side panel by the driver a little further up the dash line and then give it a radius.

key next to the cut off.

Interior looks high quality but i almost feel like gel coated speaker/drink holder pods that match the boat would give the seats some separation and stand out more.

subs moved to the consoles and with grills...There going to get killed in the back.

Nice to see the brand live on.

Doesn't get hot but I can tell you with authority that red Alcanterra becomes pink Alcanterra waaaaay sooner than it should!!
And the sweat and sunblock will have it looking like crap in a couple years as it turns pink.
