James bond style ...

James Bond-style 100mph Navy interceptor to take to the seas

is this not the company that had the hulls from Buzzi and tried to make a £1million fast pleasure boat that featured on top gear and was reported on boatmad to have gone bust

Don't want to start any rumours, but I thought that lot had gone bust? Happy to be wrong!

do you think the 85 knots is the same as the pleasure boat? so in reality 61 knots

I'm looking to pick one up on the cheap next year in the forces surplus sell off from my local army and navy store, just hope they come with a free spanner technician(that's the new politically correct term for mechanic for those not in the know)

Somewhat a strange bit of journalism and somehow ironic, namely in the paras referring to HMS Cornwall and stating it would act as a good counter to Iranian 'swarm' tactics ...
The 9 Iranians onboard the 3 Iranian boats that grabbed our heroic 15 boys & girls + i-pods along with their couple of 30 odd knot Halmatic Ribs were 75 knot Buzzi Stab boats and this boat they are trying to sell is a Buzzi approved splash of the Stab.
