Default ooh..ooh..me.me.me...I'm first!..NO Cuts.. damn it GoodFella.. I SAID NO CUTS...

I'm first to get my ride on a C-55 by Callan Marine.


I saw this beauty sitting at the Yatch Marina in Ft. Laudi a few months back. Didn't have a clue what it was, but look'd like speed was involved and that's #1 on the list.

So anyway... Im browsing in PB Mag and see a print add for the boat.
got the url address and was on the site in a matter of seconds....
check it out ... its NIIIIIIIIIIIICCCEE.

little info on the 55' C55 Performance Yatch=
C55, 55-ft. vessel with its Kevlar-reinforced fiberglass hull
- 13-ft. beam
- displaces 30,000 pounds and will cruise at 115 mph all day. (Thats all day boys @ 115mph!) Yeeeellloow!
- Twin T55 military helicopter turbines (3750 hp each)
- AND a single 300-hp Yanmar diesel.
- fly-by-wire controls built into the joystick handles
- custom touch-screen control panel.
from a bit of investigation it was unveiled at the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show, back in 99-2000.
I never heard anything..

Cool

Hey RG,
I am jealous What is being actually built for? Pleasure or government contracts? Also we are sea trialing Jay and Bob
Muller's Super Cat on Wedsnday. Ryan Beckley is putting
some vinyl on it before hand. Would like some OSO logos
for it. Can you tighten us up with a couple?

Oh guys, I could only dream of being able to go on a ride on the C55.

Saw you today @ the races ... whats the rush.....

Tonto,

Yeap, that's the one . It's pretty funny looking pulling out of the marina with the little Yanmar humming along on a 55' boat. It holds 2000 gals. of fuel and burns around 700 gal/hour. Can't go too far on a load of fuel, but you get there QUICK. I think they have something else in the works........ Hope you had fun at the races today. I hear the weather was great . Not much rough water either. Been packing the boat getting ready for Chicago, WOOOOOOHOOOOOO, here we go again
