No.

They put on a good show, but do nothing for me past that.

A turbine can run on almost any fuel. I think the Miss Geico team uses 100% biodiesel now. Another mix used is Jet A with 93 octane gasoline.

If I were going to have a "fast" boat and money were no object, there is nothing that sounds better than nasty big cube motors at high RPM. I would have a spare set to keep on rotation.

The only other thing I could see needing 2000 hp in would be a big Magnum etc. and would prefer monster diesel's.

turbines all the way. just for the freak value. if money were no object you could do boat with the turbines and one boat with big high HP v8s. best compromise.

What a great question!
Turbine Marines work is so outstanding that I would love to have a new cat rigged by them. Maybe give that new 48 MTI a shot, without a canopy. A definite "dream boat" $$$$$$$

Good taste, without a canopy that would be the ultimate poker run boat....just can't imagine running 200mph in an open cockpit, not that i've run 200mph though. lol....someday hopefully.
