Thanks everybody for your interest!
Its not as big as the quincari boats she is 8.5 ish long, yes its a tornado,the bow is now weighted with a flex tank water which is not needed with passengers.
top speed varies we run at mid /upper 30s but alone she runs at apprx 56mph not knots.
fuel economy is excellent 32 litres for both engines per hour approx.
sounds like a plane when we start onto plane.

the boat is fantastic in rough water, it seems impossible to stuff and yesterday every passenger got off and shook my hand! One chap said its a "rolls royce boat".
The public love it and definately feel the jockeys for all were the way to go instead of bench seats.

Gary at tornado in Hull (one of the MDs) knows his boats and the finish was excellent. We had to have a special handrail at the front 2 seats and they did it for free!
I am now planning the next boat (12 metres) with diesel inboards.

will keep you all posted but I won't get the next one til her in doors sees some cash from this ones season.

Mike,
I'll have this boat. Your last one is still going down a treat over here.

Luke.

She is a fine looking boat.
I have had the pleasure of seeing her first hand and climbing over her.

Very nice indeed.
Nice radio too!!!

The very best of luck with the venture Mike.
I am sure you will not need it.
As I said to you I think you have a winner.

Top boat!

Regards
