40 ft alu boat

Who can tell me anything about an 40 ft alu powerboat called Trussardi parfums ?
The year on the hull said 1986.
It was powered by twin full staggered italian BPM 6 litre twin turbo engines and SSM 3 drives.
Normally BPM makes all engines 1 liter per cilinder,as the V6 had 6 litre ,V8 8 litre,V 12 ,12 litre.
The chief engineer at BPM said ,they made em 6 litre for a max combined 12 litre .
They did that to decrease the bore and stroke.
My friend and I bought those engines ,and 1 spare engine .
At BPM they seems to know nothing about what happened after .
A company in switserland called PRO CAR did made the turbo,s ,exhaust,injection system( K jetronic double units )
intercooler (huge) exh probes,piston oil cooling etc etc
I was hoping someone could tell us if that boat has ever raced
and how it performed?
I don,t know the brand of the boat ,but it could be a CUV ?

Sterling,
It does sound like a CUV made in Viareggio welded running surfaces, rivetted sides. Probably one of Speltas old boats. Procar made some turbo motors in the early 80's in switzerland, based as you say on BPM blocks. They were the guys who originally preppared the BMW M1's that supported F1 races in the mid 70's. All that I can remember is that they were very unreliable and that they never finished a race.

Oh shit,that is not what I wanna hear.
I was hoping for relyabilaty,and not unrelyabilaty.
I tried to find some info about procar,but could find nothing.
Based on the boost gauges in the boat ,they put vinyl pointers at 1.3 bar boost ,thats 18 pounds.
and they could varying the boost press with a wheel,in the cockpit.
We could not find any mechanical faillure on the motors.
One is new,that was the spare engine.
And 1 of the other 2 engines that came out the boat is running fine as we put it into a Phantom 28.
We removed the whole K jetronic injection units ,and the ignition,from 1 engine ,and equipped it with EFI technology motormanagement system,so now we have sequencial EFI
In 2 weeks we are going to put it on a dyno ,to make a new fuel /ignition map,and to see what kind of power she makes.
