Congratulations on your purchase! Did you get the AZ-279 Cuddy, or another model? The Azure line is still one of my favorite designs. My current design is the Solace 345. I hold the patent on the Walk Thru Transom that I designed into that boat.

No big updates on the model, but I have worked on the deck plug a little over the years.

That’s almost the exact color scheme of my AZ258 Big Block 425hp boat! I have the leading edge deck gel and chine gel as well.

Yours looks great!! I still love these boats. Congrats!!

Im around 68 gps.

But mine was specially built in engineering. We flipped the hull and blueprinted it and sanded the entire delta.

We also installed the engine and drive with the X dimension 3/4” higher for more speed and aftermarket prop selections.

Some talented Merc applications guys dialed it in for me.
