As good as it looks in all thease pictures, it would still look better without the bow rail. The bottom looks very cool.

Olli's pictures changed my mind about his boat, it does look pretty good (not the pint jobs but the boat itself), BUT the rail has got to go!!!!

yeah im not sure about the rails they may have to go once ive run out of major jobs,gona fit new battery boxes and new k keifer trim pumps tomorrow as the standard ones suck then rewire the whole boat next week as it was fitted with fpt motors when it belonged to the sunseeker race team.before the yanmars go in i guess i should take the trimax shafts out and check the bearings.hoping to launch by the end of jan

What sort of FPT engines were used in your boat ? and did you buy the boat with or without these engines ?

The FPT,s are Cummins engines,I ve read somewhere that Sunseeker switched from 440 yanmars to 480 Cummins ,and lost a little speed....not sure why ,and like to know more about it.

Information given by Fiat Group regarding the FPT engine

http://www.fiat.co.nz/default.aspx?MenuId=207

This I assume the FPT engine spec sheet

http://www.ivecomotors.com/en-uk/Pro...P3D04N008E.pdf

Buzzi Used These N67 engines, although he tweaked them a little bit to squeeze more power for the Round Britain 2008 in the 46' ex Cessa boat Joe has often referred too, now re rigged from the original Seatek engines

If they lost a little speed here would be my guess - the Cummins turned sower than the Yanmar and they used the same gear box and didn't gear it up to get the same prop speed back, they went with larger props not faster spining and lost a little speed - like I said only my guess????

i bought it without the fpt motors,my reasons are the boat seems to run better with yans,the yans are far more simple and easy to work on and the magic bit cheaper.i think with the newest p1 sunseeker that they sold to italy they changed so many things that the end result was a mixture that made it worse
