Flipper 670DC

Given how good the Flipper 670ST is, what happens if you put a sportsboat deck on it and give it another 50hp? It turns into my perfect boat! The below foredeck cuddy sleeps two and contains a sea toilet, losing the day space and visibility of the ST in return for the utterly gorgeous sleek lines of the bigger 760DC (on the water you need to look for the badge to tell them apart). The thick substantial windscreen frame mildly obscures vision, but elevate yourself slightly by lifting the bolster and wedging yourself against the angled footplate for the perfect driving position to really indulge yourself. The extra horsepower over the ST ratchets the performance up to 11, and that fabulous hull handles it with ease. Topping out past 40 knots, it’s actually possible to cruise in the high 30s, even across a fairly choppy sea. Without doubt the most capable weekender of this size I’ve ever driven.
