some quotes from the advert

'The boat is truely amazing on the water, and reaches stupid speeds in seconds. In fact if you open the throttle fully from standstill, she will stand up vertical!!! On Tywyn estuary, where the boat is still registered, we got up to a speed of 70mph on halve throttle at about 3500 rpm (she will rev to 9000!!)'

'The engine is a 150bhp 3.0 litre v6 oil injected two stroke Mercury Blackmax with a stilhetto stainless steel performance propellor'

Apart from the two quotes it actually looks a tidy boat and 3500 is a good price

My prop/speed calculator program only goes upto 40" on propeller pitch. This only gives 62mph at 3500rpm and 160 at 9000rpm so the the true speed at 9000rpm should be comfortably in excess of 170mph, awesome!!!

This boat is not for the faint hearted and nothing can touch it in the water, and is on a par with the superfast jet ski's.

Also, 170+mph super fast jetski's. NO WAY!!!
