Silk purse to a sows ear

I'm sorry, to each their own, but this has got to be the worst paint job ever. A black hull isn't bad but a black hull, black superstructure & a black flybridge??? YUCK! I thought the thing had been in a fire or something. Jack Hargrave must be shaking his head.

Greys and blacks are so difficult to see during dawn and dusk hours. A dealer on the lake we were on wouldn't sell grey or silver, not even silver metalflake.

Your boat looks black guess the dealer on the lake didn't sell it to you

No, it's brown, but guess almost as bad. Embarrassed to say we also have a silver boat and that aspect of it has always bothered me. It's very reflective but not a good dusk color.

400k for a 40 year old boat? Interior looks like it was furnished from a Crate & Barrel store. Might be a nice boat in person... I agree with Nathanael though.

I love it. What a fit-out. Colour wise it would get a bit hot, but has air. The colour would stand out well in daylight, and at night who cares, you have lights.

It only takes ONE guy.......to think that looks "cool". As long as you can find him, mission accomplished.

No one can say, "that's just another '70's Hatteras".......

I knew a guy in Texas about 25 years ago that painted a 53' Hatteras Sportfish black...top and bottom too.

A short time later he got drunk and fell off it and drowned. True story.

All it needs now is some radar absorbant panels. The life ring is wrong color now.

I don't mind the color nearly as much as I do the tchotchkes.

I can see where they put a lot of time and money into it, but NOT my style.

Learned a new word!

Ad copy at bottom says it was owned by an interior designer.

I think it's kind of cool. There are enough white boats in our marinas.

It cost a small fortune to paint it black and it will cost another fortune to to cover up that black.

To each their own. If that's what the owner likes, then more power to them. I don't expect anyone else to like my tastes. I like people who personalize to fit their desires.

I am guessing the decks are black too.
