We did the work on that boat including altering the rear end and refitting the motors.

Price for a pair of 300X's, the hull and the trailer would be about that I would think? The motors are thirsty things though but it would be a go anywhere boat and spend a few quid on tarting it up a bit and it would be a cheap boat if that's what you want.

It's not cheap but I reckon it's a about right - any other thoughts?

I would love to build you one!

As to whether it's any good or not, I think it would represent fair value for money, in comparison a brand new BananaShark with twin Verado 300hp outboards (hard boat version) in race trim ie bare essentials turn key boat would be about £80k plus VAT. A tubed version would add some to that - we would have to work that out.

The good news is that I think the Bladerunner as a "Stabilised Monohull" is eligible for the Cowes to Monte race? They were certainly allowed in the RB12 event that is now postponed until 2014. Mile Lloyd will be able to confirm - if it is eligible it would be a great cheap hull for that event with lots of weather protection?

The customer wanted to alter the amount of lift he was getting from the rear tunnels. We raised the tunnel giving less lift, this improved the handling although I didn't try the boat myself.

The boat maybe there but Marc's small holding is near Biggin Hill
Try his website http://www.seahorse.org/ to contact him or contact him through Face book.
