Are there any future plans to include wing seats for the T2?

I'm torn between the T2 and Getaway—one of the main features that pushes me to the Getaway is the wing seats for those casual cruising days. The T2 looks badass....but no wing seats:(

If they make wings for the T2, they'd have to call it a Getaway so don't hold your breath. T2 does look badass but if you want to cruise w family and friends, the Getaway is the boat to get. Not only the wings but having the extra netting up front is really nice for cruising.

One other nice thing about Getaway is the really substantial front spreader bar (at least in the models up to 2016-dunno what they did in 2017's version). You don't really need a bowsprit to fit a spinnaker to a Getaway since the front spreader is so robust. The T2 front spreader seems a lot flimsier based on photos I've seen and the fact that no nets are attached. Granted, I like flying spinnakers, but I'm also cheap (and don't believe in spending $2K for a repurposed kit).

Buying a boat is usually an emotional rather than a intellectual decision. Something about a boat just says, "Get me".
