The 2,866-pound boat, with a cabin that can hold three, has a top-speed of 70 miles per hour and comes with a number of amenities, including shower, toilet, sun deck, teak flooring and leather interior. The MIG 675 will be available for 250,000 euros, or US$329,727, beginning next year. If you end up buying one, please drop me a line.
