It ran 90 first time out with small motors. Imagine that beast with 300's. This is the answer to a c.c. here in fl. Best of both worlds. The interior is very Ferrari.

A couple 2.5's with 15' Mids may help that.. Looks like they have 25' Mids but camera angles do funny things sometimes so maybe not.

Looks like a blast and with the cost of fuel I think more recreational go fast boaters will be looking at outboards in the future.

Hi!

Its 25 inch mids as far as I can see. Phantom 34 classic is one of my all favourites. The 30 OB looks great. Twin 300 xs would be great fun, but what about twin Vrod 350 sci's? That should be a 105 mph + hull indeed. Lowers with nose cone and low water pickups ofcourse.

Congrats Will!

Cheeers, Toffen

Id imagine Verados are too heavy, but Will would know. I like Ricks idea, 15in 260s, run em easy at 7200

Hi!

I have sent him a pm I did have 2 x Merc 2.5 efi ss engines (280 hp each) for 6 years on my Phantom (UK) 25 hull. Great strong engines, but a lot of maintance too. Too old for that now. And too expensive to run.

Cheers, Toffen
