Default Top speed of some boats

I was wondering, what the top speed of some boats was, when i first got into faster boats, and started to learn and read and see more boats, I saw some boats, and curious what their top speed was/is.

the 46 skater My Way?
Jet Set?
Extreme Exhibit?
the ITS i beleive it was, turbine boat, forgive me if i am wrong on this one?

basically just curious how fast these boats actually were, thanks

what should the new Jet Set boat do?

Jet Set is one badass mofo. 180+mph!!

Mike Fusco's first turbine boat, a 46' Skater. The yellow box between the exhausts is an outboard motor with a jet drive he uses around the docks so he doesn't create too much heat from the dry exhaust and also to save his jet fuel. Turbines burn as much at idle speeds as they do at full throttle.

His new boat is a 50' Outerlimits turbine cat... i think?

You are a bit off... His current boat is a 40' Skater.. His next boat is a 46' Skater..
