Yeah, the 47' are huge....The stringers are like 5' tall. About 15 years ago I got to see 2 of them that were not rigged. It was a amazing how big they were.

I think with those huge twin 1000HP diesels and surface drives it might see 70mph. Actually a great buy for someone who wants diesels and a big blue water boat for something like Bahamas and back! Its got the fuel capacity if you've got the wallet! Heck the Man diesels in this and the Arnesons are worth the 179K alone!

Best Regards,

I bet with some newer reprograming you could get 1100-1200 hp out of them.
