Yes, also saw it out on sea-trailing for quite a few days, very impressive looking vessel when she was up and running

I wouldn't mind a boat from this Companies stable either.. (also from NZ)

Yeah nice, plus you guys have pretty much cornered the market on wave piercers with Craig Loomis.

I wouldn't have a problem with that boat either. I picked the MTI because it's the biggest cat out there in terms of LOA.

For the V bottom lovers there's the 50' Hustler, the 51' Outerlimits, the 50' Nor-Tech and the new 54' McManus Apache, all of which can handle big turbine power.

How many V's other than the Outerlimits have turbine power now?

There are 2 other Nor-tech 50' V's.
One is completed and one is in the rigg stage.
2nd boat will be off to Europe this summer.

I dont know much about them. I would want some kind of drive that has reverse and of course can take the power. Are they pretty much vibration free?
Not like I could ever afford one but standing next to them when they spool up those turbines, oh man!

What are the pros and cons to owning one? Just wondering.

Jerry.
Not sure but think He was asking about the benefits to turbine over piston power........

and if not I would kind of like to know are they reliable in salt water?

what would be the major benefit in running them?

Oh and just to keep it going I would say the giant MTI (I think 55) with 2 of the giant turbines (1800'S???)

Thanks 007joe.
This has been fun for all of us what is dream land for most of us. There was one powerball winner last night and it wasnt me.
For me the MTI rigged by Trubine Marine sounds like my dream boat.
I would still like to hear more of the pros and cons with turbines.
For now and probably for ever I will enjoy my Fountain.
I cant complain.

Jerry.
