From what I understand, the boat are hydroplanes powered by 500cc outboards.

Not sure how the record rules work, but the UIM site lists the world record for this class at over 126 mph. Perhaps the old record was 'frozen'.

Yep and O means unlimited so motor preparation is totally open.

They're not conventional outboards as we know them with such brands as Koenig or Yamato Race engines. :
