Default Help I.D.'ing this S/O European catamaran

I'm in the market for a new play boat behind the house and found these single engine 200hp cats. From what I have found is they are made by "Twister" .. but found nothing on google. Not sure if thats the boat model of manufacture.

Seems they run 85/90mph and even offer a 2 person canopy race boat, seems like a 200hp would also be pretty good on gas also

I'm not even sure if the boats posted below are the same Manufacture, or just race in the same class.

Anyone know anything about these? Web site? For sale in the states?

No hurry to buy, just more wondering about weight, real size and real speed..

Thanks

It's a Twister cat from Finland. I think it's from the same era as the Argo cats running UIM class III offshore
Stihl Twister...

These boats fit into the Italian "C" class race boats. There is a similar series in Finland and a few other countries.

From what I've seen over the years the majority of the Italian ones are cold molded boats and they are FAST for a single engine two man race boat. They are not a big boat, I think most are like 24' and they do not have a lot of free board but they do run fast. Numerous Youtube video's of them racing.

I mention the Italians as they have a fairly large fleet of these boats racing together.

I'm really curious as to how they run 100mph plus with a stock 200hp motor. Whats the weight, tunnel width.. etc.
