An American Bladerunner

This sounds a more stable version of our Uk Bladerunner a snip at $185000 although it does not appear to have taken off in the USA yet, the hull reminds me of a small 16' 3 pointer made in the 80's that did have some success

See what you mean it does have a streched "Blagg" look about it

That's the name Blagg was trying hard to remember it duuu...back in the late 80's there were a couple down the boat yard and the owners said they were really good with an 85 yam doing around 50mph, then in the late 90's there was a rib turned up was very tempted to make an offer an stick a 90hp on it economy and some speed and even if there owners had overestimated the Blagg ability a rib version may prove better

looks like the old Monocat and that never worked. As the seller says it handles like a prototype very bad then!
