I think 80mph is unlikely with only a 75hp. Looks fun though.

These are rated for 70hp max with a top speed of a ball hair over 70mph


Smiles per gallon would be a lot!

I have used it's big brother, the Ceasar Thunderbolt (just over 5m long). They accelerate incredibly quickly, it's like being fired out of a cannon.

Nothing like it - they are from Dubai - GRP floor boards and a stainless steel transom.

Must be fun to drive that one!

Wonder abot the specs:

ASIS Inflatable & Tender Boat - XTM 4.2 - ASIS RHIB Boats | Leisure | Sports | Cabin Cruisers and Tenders custom made.

I don't get it how they get 70 mph of a 18 inch cleaver, must be very high rpm or some special gear ratio?
