They are the fastest best looking and best handling cat in there class. If they build a bigger cat I will be the first one in line to build one.

I think that if the economy can recover...at some point in the future, Steve has plans to build a bigger (twin engine) version.

36' would be even better than a 32'er Jeffs RPM is in PowerBoat this month. They did the article at Havasu.

I had the pleasure of going to RPM and riding in this boat.
The rigging is secound to none.
The acceleration will sit u back in the seat.
There is no wind in your eyes at all. The seats are sitting low enough that the wind did not make my glasses move at all.
We could carry on a conversation at any speed.

Thanks to RPM for taking the time to show me their latest 26...

I am a big fan of them, and hope to have them build me one in a few years. Seem to be a pretty good starter cat with a stock 8.2l in it, not to mention the relatively inexpensive price for a custom boat.

This particular boat is a light layup, I believe the first one that they have done. It is all Carbon/kevlar, and has no cabin, saving another 150lbs. I forget what they said the total weight was, but i believe it was in the 3800lb range rigged.
