Saw this in Yarmouth (IOW) last sunday. Looks stunning from the side but it's a real ugly bastard viwed from the stern, it looks very narrow for it's length.

Good point, Scand. Thank you for clearing that up, didnt realise the
Sunseeker was a Fabio Buzzi design.

Probably a similar deal to Sunseeker get, FB marine supply the hull and the rights to use etc granting a manufacturer the ability to alter the decking and style of use...FB is certainly a wise businessman that's for sure

The over 100 mph spec is using 2x Stirling Supercharged V8ís and is ď(not available in Europe due to emissions regulations)Ē.
If the first production version that they are testing now have the standard 2x 11.3L Isotta Fraschini L1306 - 588kW engines, then this will probably have a top speed of about 76 knots, if you read in-between the lines on their web site.
Does any one know the top speed of Wetpunkt/Kerakoll in P1?
I think it is good that some has the balls and cash to try to pull a project like this of....
