That video was really cool and it had the sounds of the Turbines.

He said they now have licensing with Outerlimits to build their boats to spec as well. There's a picture of "XXX" on their site, and it looks identical to the real boat.

The quality & everything about these boats is FIRST class. I'm going to have mine matched to my boat when it arrives in a few days. I'll slowly start building on it from there! Gonna be sweeeeeeeet
B,
COOOOLLLL! Can't wait to see it, always loved the paint on your Skater!

Thanks,

Go to MHZ's site HERE

Once you're there, on the left side of the page, they list all of their boat models. (They have a bad ass 41 Apache replica too...)

Click "Catamaran".

You'll see the Mystic C5000 about halfway down the page, with a picture of Bud Select.

If that's the one you want, or whichever one you want, then call: (239) 225 8505 they are really cool, and the guy that runs the US distributor will probably answer. He knows it all.

Just FYI: To get the "exact" setup as the GEICO rig, you're looking at spening comfortably in the $20+k range. Its' the top of the line model they build, as you would expect from the GEICO guys.

If they have the model you want in stock, they ship it in 48 hours. They are based out of Fort Myers. Good luck, and post what you got if you decide to buy one!


PS: Thanks Dean!
