I like it, enough of the Benz stuff, how did he do the motors if they are Sterlings, is all the Benz stuff covers? That dash looks like it came right from a 500 series, maybe a 600. He should have had the 600 12cyl motors in there. Looks cool though and must fly.

I am sure someone in the know will give more details, but what I read is that the owner is a LARGE Benz dealer. It has Benz covers on the engines and such.

IMO it has to be one of the most unique boats around.

That is one of the boats that was in the MTI booth at the Miami boat show this year.

There was a long thread around the time of the Miami show where the boat was discussed in detail.

The owner is Stuart Hayim, who used to race APBA in a Skater named Recovery. He owns oriental rug businesses in NY and a Benz dealership from what I was told.
