Default Fastest "Pleasure" V-Bottom?

We know that Bill and Gino have a little competition going as far as the cats but who has the fastest pleasure V?

I think Outerlimits would be "Catagorized" as a pleasure boat, whereas Reggie used all out race boats.

How big are we talking? It's very relative. The Skater V bottom is crazy fast. Fountain's are fast over 35ft but the smaller ones are not. So I think you have to break it down to size.

My concept of a pleasure vee has a cabin of some some sort.... otherwise what really seperates a race vee from a pleasure vee??

I think if it was not a purpose built race v-bottom it would be considered pleasure....there are some huge powered OL's, Cigs, Skaters, Fountains,etc.....just wondering who, specific boat not brand, is at the top of the food chain?

Our SL 44 Has been 144 on pump gas, Full Cabin, A/C & Generator. 144 on the limiters, a little more gear & 150 is not out of the question. I'd say that is a pretty fast Pleasure Boat

That is a sweet boat.

I wonder, how many people with the money to buy that boat ever stay in the cabin over night or uses the gen? I would think the hotel would be the place I would sleep.

Just asking,
