Default Smallest Offshore With Twins??

What was the smallest offshore boat ever built with twins? We're not talking wierd little one-offs here. The smallest legitimate offshore with twins.

I vote for the early Formula 233 (the one Aronow raced).

Don't know what you are defining as 'offshore' or 'one-offs' but Mirage made a 25' with twin 330's and American Offshore made (I think one) 26' with twin Big blocks. The Offshore had trouble planing - never saw the Mirage run.

Thats cool Rebar,,,,, but the late model Formula 242 had twin 350s. Lots of 26-27 footers out there over the years with fat-blocks. Anything smaller than 24' with twin V-8s??

I know that Carrera made a 24 with twin 350's. One of the few they made is actually for sale on boattrader... http://adcache.boattraderonline.com/6/6/4/52028764.htm
