Default Turbine Powered Cats

Does anyone know of any turbine-powered cats for sale? 32' to 38' only - no bigger.

Call John Cosker or John Pompi @ Marine Performance (386)-760-6464, they might be able to help you locate one.
Hope this helps,

Jeffrey,
Before you spend the cash, Talk to the guys at Wiesman about that setup.

Puder - The Cig will always be at the top of my list. Just making some light (very light) inquiries to see what's out there ...

Thanks for the other referrals. I will check them out.

How about a 30' Turbine Cat, it's a VERY NICE one.

Default Build your own.

I read about turbine boats in a power boat magazine. They listed a few people who put them together. One of the names was Firestorm Turbines. I only remember because I saw a guy at the poker run wearing the logo on his hat and shirt. I did some surfine when I got home and found his site. http://www.firestrm.ca/. I don't know if he had anything to do with the new MyWay, but he was hanging around and answering a lot of quetions.

How loud are these things? I mean are they louder when they are going past then say a a large big block? How many hours btwn service intervals do they have? I would think that the wine from the turbine is almost unbrearable????
