They have been tight lipped. Been on my dealer and all I was told is reveal June 12th or 13th.  Really interested as we are due for a new boat next year

Sounds like it will be a good fit in between a s238 and a Ri. Comes very basic but can be optioned out similar to a Ri. Great replacement for the FS line. May be my next purchase so I will be watching close for a spring trade up from my FS33. I don't know anything for sure but have heard some good rumors....

It's sick. Got a chance to see one in person last week. Really impressed with what they did. It's not as tall..... errr not as much freeboard as the RI series. Reminds me sortof how the GS compares to the G's

Interior is LEGIT... was over the top impressed with how good it looks. Dash and glove area are changed up also. 

Super excited to see how they perform.

does the price point slot right in the middle of s238 and ri?

wait so it wont be a RI but with the FS style pickle fork front end?   Wasn't that the case with the FS and SV, them being the same just different front end styles?

And I saw a RI in the water this weekend for the first time in person. Holy SH...........  That thing is massive. I was only a couple feet away in my elite and though I was pulling up to some kind of battleship haha

From what I understand , it has a very similar running surface closest to the RI257. The hull and top deck are COMPLETLY differnt looking than the RI series though. I never asked price. I imagine they will be close to the comparible RI. They don't seem to have any corners cut to trim down price, but we can be optimistic I guess.....

 

When you say battleship.... you mean like this

Sounds like the Fi size will be similar to a FS but with more of a Ri nose. It's a completely new hull but similar size overall. The SV had the smallest freeboard, FS medium and Ri largest freeboard (sidewall height). Plus yes the FS was the only one w a pickle (square) front.

I guess price will be all about the options. Base price is pretty low w/o ramfill or everything else you really need/want. Optioned out I'm sure it will be close to what a loaded FS33 was or just below a Ri. Sounds like the new dash will be awesome, bout time they add something like the Malibu or G....

Bawshogg, you gotta give us more than that! Can you elaborate on the new dash setup? Single screen, dual screen? How about the nose? Resemble the old Fs? Remember, sharing is caring!

And I bet you liked checking out the Fi over Disneyland..

My 17 year old told me his favourite vacations are our Tennessee road trips.  We were in Disneyworld when he shared that info.....

Sharing in a public forum , specifically details of an unreleased product, is out of bounds. To be privy to that type of information you have to understand the rules... one of them is DONT POST PICTURES that may pertain to specific details of said products. 

I appreciate being able to have to opertunity to have theses things shared with me .... I'll keep them in my spank bank for now. Sorry.... ?

As far as the bow.... it's not an FS but it is a blunt or squared off nose. Not much about the boat is reminiscent of the FS ,accept it's a pickle fork style bow. It's all by itself and all brand new. It follows and suits well with the rest of the brand... they have similar bloodlines, but nothing is the same between the two lines....accept for maybe a handful of pieces. You should official forget about the FS series now.

I'm sure the release will be anti-climatic. Too many times on this site we've been built up on a new release, just to have some crappy video released 3 weeks late of a dude falling in the surf wave...

I applaud you Bawshogg.  I've been privileged to see a couple of preproduction autos in my previous career.  Definitely a no-no to give out any detailed information on them prior to public release.

It does.  And I don't care for them either.  Even after all these years, I still can't bring myself to get over it
