ZFT-4 tower. It's Mediterranean blue lowlighted by navy blue. I guess I like blue! :cool:

X2 but I am in Pensacola, Florida right now after a good rain it is 56*F or 13.3*C ( which doesn't sound that great numerically :-)

Nice looking boat, looks like a nice early Christmas present.

I saw the shipping cover in one of the pictures. I kept mine and used it when I stored it this winter. I put the normal cover on, lowered the tower, and covered everything with the shipping cover. It's a free extra level of protection.

That's a great idea. I'm gonna call my dealer now and make sure they keep it around for me ...

Did they give you an estimate on when the tower would be in?? Seems pretty ridiculous to even offer it as an option if they haven't even finished it yet... Not sure I could go in blind like that

No timeline on the tower. I won't pick the boat up until April, so I'm not concerned.

Saw some more pix of the ZFT-4 and it looks even better than I was thinking it would.

I hear you on the "newness" of the tower, but that's what warranty is for. I'm hopeful that there's not much that can go wrong with a non-power tower.

If I heard correctly, the ZFT-5p (power) tower is going to be recalled. The actuators are going to be replaced with hydraulic power. Rumor only ...

ZFT-4 has to be close to completion. Saw the prototype/boat show boat with the ZFT-4 leaving the factory. Had no idea they were anodizing/powder coating them... That'll be sick (if I understood you right).

I think I saw pix of the same boat. The thing I like best about the ZFT-4 is that the tower leans further back towards the transome (like the ZFT-5p). Not only does this look better, but it allows for easier boarding from the swin deck (ie. gives you something to hold onto as you board).

What does slider mean? or switch for that matter?

The Switch has the X-25 logo at the front of the boat and a chrome "MC" logo to the aft.

The Slider has the X-25 logo aft with a larger, non-chrome "MC" logo up front. You can choose a color for the MC logo in this set up ...

Speaking of Mediterranean, The King of Jordan also knows a good boat... I somehow doubt jumping on our pre's boat would end well LOL!

Saw a real-life pic of the ZFT4 as well, looks pretty good. The piston base is square like the ZFT5,looks like there is more aluminum there as well. The top is swept back more aft as discussed before, with a sweeping piece of billet (looked like billet) after the privet point creating a convex "hump" before straightening out and heading aft. Don't think it looks as good as the ZFT5, but a step up from the ZFT2 (although the latter has been growing on me).

I'd be expecting pics will be released pretty soon, sounds like everyone is ordering ZFT4 now as opposed to the 2.

Anyone have pics of the ZFT4?

Also are they power coating towers now?

You can always have the tower powder coated, but if you send it to GereMarie it is actually a colored anodized tower. You will have to have your boat shipped there first to swap towers and then it will continue its journey.
