Ain't so! I was project engineer on the refit from record breaker to yacht. It set the original superyacht speed record (APBA) of 63 knots. It will cruise on diesels only at high speeds.

Just imagine the look on the jetskiers face when he jumps the wake you are making at 70 mph. Some place diverters on the jetdrives could also shoot some wicked rooster tails. Wish I could afford it but the payment calculator wouldn't except a 300 year mortage term.

"Fuel consumption is approximately 328 gals per hour at 45 knots under the MTU's only"

Shane & Tbone, I'll cover the first hour of operational costs. You guys split the rest of the weekend.

Two reasons: They always ask about two million more than its value, and it has the same number of staterooms as a 26' Bayliner. I would give my left nut to have it! The bridge is out of Star Wars, with nine black Recaro seats, auto pssssst doors, etc. It has a ballast tank and a longitudenal clinometer, so that, at rest, you can level the boat like a pool table. The LCOB is waaaay back, for top speed. The radars are inside a fairing. It is a piece of work.

Brownie;
Thanks for the reply on the Gentry. Aluminum hull means light weight and probably fast, too. Do you want to go in half and half on it? Just kidding.
