These boats are built for ski racing. Over 100 mph skiing is very common. This sports is making a comeback. These are not one off's these are standards.

These guys are full blown race boats, definitely not a through together, the top of the line boats would be running close to 200k build cost, i.e no joke.

Here is a video of one running a 4.5L Twin turbo Nissan V8

here is another with the skiers, you get to see how windy it actually is, this boat would be running around 100mph maybe a little over on the straights

Used to speed ski when I lived in Oregon. Crashed at just over 100 once. Knocked me out cold. Am still sure I hold the record for stone skipping.

A quote from the movie space balls comes immediately to mind.
