A new link to the Casino Royale movie clip with now 0.5 secs of boat, plus Aston Matin DB9S. Looks good.

"The Sunseeker hull is a race tested balsa cored Kevlar sandwich structure derived from the FB design racing hulls" Do Sunseeker copy FB manufacturing process, can't imagine why FB would use new ideas then allow Sunseeker to copy them even if paid royalties, of which one would assume they do for building a copy of FB boats. I do think however these boats are great and would still be proud to own one.

xs

Sunseeker do not build the hull they buy it in. They did design the top deck on the 2000 and sport but also do not build this, they just put the boat together and call it a Sunseeker XS.

I was told the Sunseeker hulls were build in Germany, but I don't know if FB hulls are.

ahh ok that explains it, the reason for questioning it is living in poole all my life and over the years I have known many of the workforce, some rent flats of me, therefore I knew Sunseeker would not copy that kind of build, but did not know they had the hull brought in, as I said I like the boat and being from the FB stable it will do everything on the water one would expect of a thoroughbred

I donít know who makes them, but there was a XS2000 mould lying outside Ocean Quay Southampton about one and half years ago.
