Default Velocity 430 w 450Rs

Been following Reggie 3 on IG and this popped up.

https://www.velocityboats.com/430VRX.html

I love it except it needs the style of windlass that’s below the deck. 82mph with twin 450Rs. Full cabin and AC.

Nice looking boat and I like having a windlass but concede, it’s difficult to incorporate in a ‘pointy’ bow but I think there’s room for improvement.
Maybe Reggie 3 is getting a few ideas to share for an outboard powered Lightning, or even an Executioner? There’s several older conversions been done now……Hint….Hint…🙂

Not bad. How long before we get a mid to upper 30s footer with one 600 on it? 5, 4, 3, 2, 1....

Sweet boat, I'd rather have the anchor on the bow than having to get it out of a locker.

Nice big cockpit, but definitely needs triples. Although twin 860's gets you into triple digits.

Why does it have 100MPH embroidered on the seats if it only goes 82MPH?

Lol, just like Lots of boats that have world champion on them, that aren’t. One may have done it, but not all. They just sll get the graphics/embroidery. Just round table talk. I agree, 100mph and that boat foesn’t do it is tacky and i wouldn’t want it (embroidery) Lol.

Btw: Great looking boat. Schweet !

I don’t know the whole back story but it would appear that he isn’t affiliated with fountain or iconic marine group.

Looks like he’s building or work with velocity now.

An extra $55k for another 450R would probably get close. I like the symmetry and simplicity of twins though.
