I rode on the Elizabeth Thomas that is on Lowells web site. The boat was a beast! Rode a great head and following and sat great. 19knots with 700hp and the owner said it was very good on fuel. It's a very big 43. I plan on upgrading from my NB in a few years and this will most likely be my hull, only other boat that I personaly like as much would be the 42 Duffy but the Lowell felt bigger.
