Big thanks to Jeremy and the guys at Ice Marine.

Many thanks Jeremy,

The run out on the Bladerunner was truly awesome! All the guys thought the boat runs amazingly. Nice to see a boat actually running at its acclaimed speeds. Knocking close on the door of 80 mph and not having to back off hardly at all through those ferry wakes was pretty impressive. We were all equally impressed with the stability and speed in those tight turns, great for a 35 footer.

The Verados seem a perfect match, awesome torque and acceleration. Looking forward to seeing you build one with 350 Verados, keep the good work up chaps.

P.s. If the opportunity ever arises for a run in the closed cockpit version I would be very interest for the comparison.


Fantastic thanks again!!!

Jeremy a big thanks from me,the oppertunity to go in a £150K power boat was great,If you get any of those seats that you are throwing on the scrap heap I'll have them-although at £6k each probably not. If I can get my Phantom to do 80 MPH I'll be happy and if its as smooth as the Bladerunner then even better.but I think for now I'd better keep up my health care payments to cover Spinal Surgery.'FANTASTIC BOAT-FANTASTIC OPPERTUNITY'
Thanks Nic
