Beautiful boat.

If I was in a position to upgrade boats I would give this boat a hard look. Newer Suzuki 300’s ain’t cheep and this boat has lots of little details that some may not appreciate until you go round 2 and 3 after the initial boat purchase.
Thank you for the compliments and attention to detail.

Hi Bass2Mouth, Thank you for your posts, and all the great pictures of your Parker. I replied when you first posted this; I love your boat! In fact it may be the best-equipped Parker of it's type (I LOVE all the cabin-space and enclosed head).... You just mentioned 'New Boat Coming'. I don't mean to pry, but I am very curious as to what boat you are replacing your Parker with. It must be an amazing boat to be better than the Parker you already have.

Hi Andy, we’ve moved up to a 40’ Express.
