First pics of the 8.3m LEEWAY in action

We have just finished sea trials on our Leeway 8.3m she is doing 64 mph with a 225 optimax (needs bigger pitch prop for that little more top end speed) goes realy well and we are very happy

More pics to follow when we manage to get some better ones.

What about a bigger lens and a faster shutter speed

The boat looks good, the only thing I didīt like on the pic is the style on the sofa.
