Go to the States - everything is for sale at the end of the season - Key West in November is the spot!

That's ok - give me your cheque book and I'll sort something out for you when I'm over there later in the year!

Twin EFI's 2.5l 280 hp each - the same as Ian Blacker is running in dubai. Not sure of the top speed - high 90's - over 100?

Thanks Cookee, i thought you would be telling me how good your boats are and that i need one of those instead.
After all i am just up the road from you.

Do you have winter storage at your yard or are you supply and service only?

Would love to pop by one day soon and have a look at your set up.

Of course you would be welcome any time, just let me know you're coming - we might be out er um testing or something if you just turn up!

No storage I'm afraid - I could do with more room myself!

Of course our boat are fantastic, but with the best will in the world arn't exactly comparable to a twin EFI cat! However if you're in the market for a boat I'm sure we could make something for you - it depends on how fast you want to go?

The boat in the first picture is Paul dePoo's AirSpeed racing, It won the 6 boat stock class race (like UIM 6 litre) I throttled it last year and had it 119 MPH in FLAT water.
