Default Small gas turbine project

Found a hell of a deal on a jet boat and was thinking about putting a small gas turbine in it. Does anyone know of some websites that sale small gas turbines. Somewhere in the neighborhood of maybe 300 to 500 HP? It will be my first gas turbine project. I have talked with many people on parts and pieces.

I know it's not going to be the cheapest, but it can be done on a reasonable budget with the right connections. If it turns out to be too big of a project, I will rebuild the big block chevy already in it, but I sure like the sweet sound of a turbine.

Any help or input on this is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Shawn
