Here's the hull test I found with piston power for 100k and extra 100k gets you the Lycoming. Champagne taste on a beer budget.

seems like a cool boat but you can get a turbine powered cat from Elininator same size for allot less, I wonder what the performance is on this boat???

I didn't see any performance figures. I also looked for a turbine Eliminator to no avail. ITS has a sweet package that is a 40' Skater that has the potential for 170+ mph for around 900 k with Twin-1400HP Lycomings. Has a neat clutch system for docking as turbines only put out 30 hp each at idle. It's not cheap but it's a great ride for the $$ and not far off from some top end piston powered boats.
