Default The boat in "Sahara"

I was watching the trailer for the new movie "Sahara" and it had a big fast boat. Anyone know what they used? I didn't recognize the lines.

I like reading the Clive Cussler books. There was one book that had it characters racing a super cat. They should make a movie out of that one too.

Ron, I can't remember the book. Shockwave maybe. I'll have to pull them out and look. It was at the very beginning of the book. Not Dirk Pitt, but that other fellow.
