Yes that boat is bad ass, something like over 300 mph. How about he wanted to drive the fastest V-hull in the world? Until someone beats Reggie's record that will be a safe statement. It looks like Cigarette tried to beat the record but fell just a little short.

...He wanted to work for a boat manufacturer whos goal is to
build the best and fastest V bottoms in the world....that actually
compete in racing. Not a glorified CLOTHING company.
