B23 or this one

Hi,
a long time ago I asked the same question for a B23 directly to a French naval architect who was working with Oke, he told me that the B2 was design for a 2litres, a short shaft, for a 20 inches shaft he told me that possible but it was an option and the gravity center of the boat was higher, the stability was less good with this option. I gave up my project.
But in France they built a special boat with High tech material, the look is similar than the B23, the lenght is 26feet, I saw this boat with a VERADO 175 hp in rough sea condition and it was amazing how the are well in rough water. the top speed is 62knots with a 175 VERADO.
If you want one they can build one for you at your request, because they have different way of production, fiber glass, cabone, kevlar fiber etc.
they can build a special for 3liter engine 250 XS or HO engine.
The shipping cost to your country will be expensive I think.
If you are interested I can give the phone number of the builder, I is usually in the european Class 3 offshore circuit for More the 25 years now.
SINCERELY and hope this help.

Thanks for that info.
I may have the wrong size boat in mind it could be 26'.
If you could give us the manufacturers details that would be much appreciated.
What size bat boats are they running in England?
Some of them appear to have 250 or 300 hp motors on them. That is the kind of hull we are after.

Interesting. I have a B-22 with a 20" 2 litre XR2 and no problem. Just needed a couple of sand bags on the bottom and a bit of ballast water in the tank.
Mine is very old (the first one) and still going strong but wish to buy a more modern one.
could you please advise website or address of manufacturer in france,
Thanks
