It states that the boat was built in 2005 by a world class boatbuilder.

And that it is indecently faster than all other boats with similar power, or summat like that.

Well, the customer/rigger was Pete Berrow & Shelly Jory, the boat was and as far as I know still is, embarrasingly slow (ran very low 60's with the XS200), and I took this picture of it on 6.6.2002 during prop testing at Merlin Quay. Not quite 2005.

you can see 'Step Forward' 'anialating the all the competition around the Solent' toward the end of this Poker run video from 2006 (from around the 3 min mark)

It's all this bull sh~t that makes it harder to sell an honest boat especially when you quote an honest speed and everyone else is adding another 5-10mph.
