    P1 World Record

    388 Hustler w/ Twin 440 Yanmars and ASD #8's

    Vee smahes SuperSport world speed record

    Vee Ganjavian, owner and throttleman of Powerboat P1 World Championship team,, this week broke the world speed record for a P1 SuperSport boat when, on the freshwaters of Lake Coniston, Cumbria, England, he was officially recorded at 84.44mph in his Yanmar powered Hustler. The previous record was 78mph.

    Ganjavian, the Southampton-based entrepreneur and acknowledged speed-junkie, already holds several world speed records including the fastest recorded Thundercat at 64.7mph. Last year, his attempt to break 70mph in a Thundercat ended in dramatic fashion when the boat flipped in almost the identical spot to where Sir Donald Campbell and Bluebird flipped in their 1967 world speed record attempt.

    Partnered in the boat by fellow P1 racer, Jan Falkowski, the Hustler was hampered by gusty winds of up to 40mph along the specially designed 1,000 metre runway. The official UIM world speed record is based upon the average of two 1,000 metre runs.

    "It was very satisfying to secure another world record and good to associate P1 and Hustler Powerboats with outright speed," explains Ganjavian. "The boat sits deeper in fresh water than in the sea and therefore runs more slowly. Nevertheless, 84.44mph is a good effort. The objective in this type of discipline is to hold the boat in a perfectly straight line between the two marks. It may sound straight forward but with such strong winds it was pretty challenging."

    Nice, gotta love the diesels and surface drive combo. If everyone did this it would put marine services out of business.
