Default Which cat would be the best....

to put a singel supercharged 800hp engine in.
Looking for speed and stability. What brands should I look for (used). Any good suggestions?

DCB and eliminator are the two that come to mind.

Yea, but your right

I'd go 26 Daytona- a little deeper boat for rough water you may find in your fiords etc.

The 25 is great, just the 26 is better

Obvious choices have been stated.

For something a little different...

Talon / Hustler 25

American Offshore 2600

Then there's alway the ex-Vanilla Ice 27 Aronow...

I like the looks of the DCB, but what boat would be the fastest of them with the 800hp?

What is the DCB web site?

Thanks, I will need to figure this out soon. It take time to find the right boat and get it shipped to Norway.

Then get it CE and rigged by may 07.

Thanks for your opinions.

I think there is a DCB currently in the classifieds or on www.boattraderonline.com with a single 800HP. You might want to give the guy a call. DCB is under www.dcbracing.com (I think).
