Question Pure Genius

Does anyone remember a boat called Pure Genius, it was about 30 ft long,
Black in colour, and had twin inboards,
I last saw it at Eastlands boat yard near the Midas Workshop around 1994, not sure of make, does anyone have photos, what kind of boat was it?

Looks a little more dated than i thought, Funny how you picture how something looked and in a photo its different.
I remember it a big spoiler thingy on the back.

I didnt think it was as long as that as i paced it out at the time,I seem to think it had a moulded screen as Phantom or Ring and not a glass screen as the express, but it was many years ago.

Well that sounds more 'Bonito' than 'Lancer'.

Was there one around 30 ft long ever built, just i thought at the time it looked well cool.
This is were the street cred goes out the window when someone posts a photo of this beaten up old boat.
This boat had Merc legs with very pointed boxes as efi outboards.(speed masters i think they where called)
