It's pretty sharp-- I don't know how much time was put into the development of the Batboat since it was for the movie, but this wouldn't have filmed well on the water-- it would have virtually disappeared which is why you have bright vibrant colors on the real thing.
Personally, I'm a traditionalist and prefer the one used, but this is neat.

The accents on the trailer are a nice touch, too, evoking the cycle sidecar.

Thumbs up from the "other" Aqua-Bats!

This is a really cool concept you've brought to life here!

Have you taken it out on the water for a spin? I'd love to see some footage of it!

It may hot have filmed well, but this makes a lot more sense than the original colors. Why would you paint the Batmobile black with red pinstriping and not do the same for the Batboat?
