I remember seeing the one at miami had trip 850s...I am almost positive, but I thought it said the 1075s were optional somewhere....I wonder how fast she would go with trip 1075s

If I was that kid, and you guys were talkin about ME like that, I'd just say "Hey BLOW ME", slap my 18yr old honey on the ass, then laugh and throw a big-ass rooster on ya.

Everyone remember this boat when you are filling yours up this weekend at 3+ dollars/gallon!

They are in the Bahamas, so I am sure it's closer to $5 / gallon.

Thanks OSO for explaining the real situation.

You know we just like causing trouble for you. If it wasn't for all your friends cause problems on OSO you wouldn't have anything to do. but I realize that the others believe everything they read on the internet not be true.

Anyway it is a beautiful boat. This is only the second one built and they both had 850s. I am sure there will be more soon. There is always someone that needs to have something bigger and faster than everyone else.

I'm sure Skip will build you your very own if you want to pay 1mil+. You'll be the third...DO IT!!

The motors are also custom from Merc. Again, royalty will get you whatever you want bro.
The Sister boat is the one that you all have pictured from the show. Not sure what you mean by custom but these are stock out of the crate 850 motors like go in every other production boat. The first boat that was in the show was built based on the customer seeing the Helios boat and wanting something bigger and badder. The second one which is the boat this thread is about I am sure was a monkey see monkey do situation.

Cigarette does not have the 50 listed in their line of boats on the site but like tank said, money will but you anything you want in this business.

The Helios boat with a pair of 1075's runs 113 or 118 can't remember.

Here's a recent picture of Helios getting ready to be serviced and sent back to Europe.

It may not be in their catalog, but they have the poster on the showroom wall....

I like the look of the inverted staggered setup, but with all the longer pipes everywhere, it could make servicing the middle engine a pain!

At 15 , I worked and saved up to get a 1988 Yamaha Waverunner 500!
