150 mph, slow? That is getting with the program, sh*t you are in 48' boat at 150+ mph, that is very, very strong. And where I live near the Jersey Shore that would be perfect. I would have gratitude and humility if I were own a boat that performed so well and looked so good, that is a blessing.

I agree with ya Smarty. I can't believe people think 150 mph is slow! I would love to go that "slow". Offshoredrillin was saying the same thing.

Could someone put numbers on the total cost to get that boat running. Not a guess, but real numbers for engines, props, rigging.

Personally, I think that anyone using a canopied boat as a pleasure boat at those speeds is nuts. There have been countless threads about it.

I wish That I had an extra $260k. What a deal this is!!!! Incredible looking boat. Not meaning to come off wrong, but people scoffing at a 160mph boat just seems crazy. Is it me or was it only about ten years ago where if you hit the magic number of 100mph you were "the man". The technology in bottoms,materials and motors has been rising at an unbelievable pace.

The speeds we are running around all day now is crazy. But addictive. To be cruising at 140 plus all day is insane. So much can happen but yet its so addictive. Only the big cats can allow you to experience. That. The Turbine. Boat is really bad. You have no sense. Of pushing the engines.. what a rush is all I can say..

That has got to be some great feeling! How many hours for the Turbines between rebuilds?

VERY addictive... Going 110 in my boat isn't as fun anymore haha. I'm very thankful to have gotten to ride at 160. I'll never forget it.
