There seems to be more of these popping up over here in the US - either they really do perform well, or these guys have some big stones to take one on a poker run to KW!?

Yes it looks like a COUGAR by AIRSHIP . I have a good freind with a brand new one with a Verado for sale . The boat is in Sarasota.

I think Bruce at Express Engines, is a Distributor for a similar boat.

That'll be a Revenger, which is made a couple of miles away from where the UK version of an Airship (Cougar) is also built!

Funnily enough, it's also the place where the owner of the one at Express Engines lives!!! Hampshire in the UK.

Small world innit?

Pretty freakin' sweet ride! Would make a cool - and unique - day boat, looks like it has some good freeboard and a sick dash set-up!!

There was a cool rib pulling out at the ramp at the Lauderdale show. The brand was Sealegs. Hydraulic driven wheels fold down and up the ramp and down the street you go. This thing was bada$$

This was a showboat, but all of the welds were top notch and the molds and machine work were top notch as well. Someone put a LOT of time into engineering on this.
