Of course they build the 25/27 footer now used for racing in the Honda 225 class, but we wont go there.
I might be wrong but I recall a 27 footer in the late 80s?

My utmost dream boat and ride was in 1989/90 a 46 US-1 with triple 575s and SSM6s...its still around here in Finland somewhere.
Unbelievable and great boat that was totally white.
Looked Stunning as that big in only one colour.

Today I could do a 47 Apache bare hull as a project with triple Duramaxes and Arnesons, surely Id get rid of every muscle car Ive got (5)....oooorrrr could i just keep one or two

Cougar built US-1s in 33, 38 and 46ft in the early 80's. His Lordship has his 38 for sale at present although its now about 40ft long thanks to the "beak" that was added to race in P1.
The white Hunton that's for sale at the moment is absolutely immaculate with new motors, silent choice exhausts, carbon dash, all new upholstery, teak deck, new instruments and controls etc. Chris Lewis did most of the work and it's only done about 15 hours. It was originally red and was gel sprayed, new pin stripes in fact everything is new bar the hull and deck, kept on an air berth in Lymington. Owned by an ex 2 litre racer ...
Would have thought that its a really good deal.

Thank you for correcting
I knew Cougar did a smaller than 38 hull too but wasnt it in the late 80s?
