I suspect having fairly deep pockets is step 1.

Motor

I know RJ Marine had a few v8 inboards kicking around his workshop a while back, whether they are spares I don't know. I do know that the motor he currently has in his 21 cyclone is good for around 800+ horsepower
Might be a good man to speak to as I'd he doesn't have what you want I'm sure he knows where to get it
