Default Anybody like jet boats?

The world's most powerful sport boat in 2005 just became even more powerful for 2006. With 430 thundering horsepower at your fingertips you will be in the elite group of high performance cruisers. The quiet whine of the intercooled superchargers will remind you that you are in the fastest accelerating jet boat ever built. 0 to 40 in 4 seconds, a time to plane speed that is too fast to measure. These are the hallmarks of the Speedster 200, a legacy is being written and you have the chance to be one of the authors. There is no compromise in any part of this speed demon either, the electronic gauge package, inlet clearance system, AM/FM CD radio, adjustable swivel and forward/back seats, and the best storage arrangement ever designed! Available in either bright red or medium blue the color coordinated interior will always look fresh and undated. I WANT ONE !!!

I might consider one with N/A engines of the same output, but its a long shot....doesn't Mercury make one in that range?

I've read a review of it a couple months ago...59 mph top end?? I'll pick a Donzi 18 instead!

I had an 01 speedster and that had a merc v6 in it. It was definitely a fun little boat. The cool thing was you could turn them on a dime just like a jetski.

We just bought a 06 Seadoo Sportster with the single 155Hp 4-TEC engine in it and it's a blast! It does 48-50 MPH with me and my oldest daughter in it!
And it is just a riot to turn @ WOT!
I think our Nordic is getting jealous of the Seadoo! We haven't been out in the Nordic since we bought the Seadoo, although, I did install new subwoofers in the Nordic this past weekend.
Anyway, they make a great little 2nd boat for all the kid type activities.
