2017 Interiors

Hey TT,

Looking at some of the new boats and may pull the trigger here soon on an x23. One thing that is really bothering me (entirely too much most likely) is the interior changes between 2015/16 and 17.

I was always a huge fan of the diamond stitching, MC embroidered badges and the bright billet glove and bow walk through doors. I am concerned that blackened billet will fade like the towers did as well.

The changes seem to make the interior...well frankly boring. It looks much simpler and like cost saving measures IMO and looses some of the class and detail of the older interiors. I know they are going for a more refined and muted appearance, it just misses the mark for me. At least a first blush.

I haven't crawled through many 2017's yet, mostly online photos. What say you TT?

I obviously disagree, but it has been discussed heavily around these parts. TT owners of 2015/'16s seem to share your sentiment and I'm sure they'll soon be here to voice it.

The only part of the 2017 interior that I find to be a downgrade is the observer arm rest - it just looks odd IMHO. I did also like the diamond stitching. Otherwise, I much prefer the new aluminum on dash/bow door/glovebox and the functionality of new glove box setup.

fortunately for you there are plenty 2016s out there to pick from.

I said the same thing as you at 1st, I like both interiors now OLD and NEW

Ironically, my wife and were looking at pics yesterday that our dealer sent over while prepping our boat for delivery. It's a non-current PS, so it has the "old" interior. My wife turned to me and stated how she liked our interior much more than the '17 we looked at. I agree as well, but it's just a personal preference thing.

I was disappointed at first, but when I started to look around and showed it to my wife (she liked it) I started developing a taste for it. I'm less blingny myself I guess, so it works for us.

We have a '16 and love the interior but also think all the changes with the exception of the cleats were a step in the right direction for 2017. To us the muted appearance is a good bit more classy and less blingy. Just an opinion, only reason I say it because it did take a little bit of time for the new interiors to grow on me, and it could be the same for you.

I like the new one as the old one has just too many details in it (2016 interior Vs 2017). But before I had seen the new 2017 interior the old one looked really nice. I was a sucker for the diamond stitching, but as I have been looking at it now for 2 years I am over it. personal preference and both are nice just different.
