I had a go on one similar in Gran Canaria.

The "BIG RED" she was imported from New Zealand along with the owner and had twin chevrolets and an Aluminium hull.

The owner claimed he could spin her through 360 degrees but that did not quite happen on my trip, although he was not far off at about 270 degrees.

Awesome!!!!!

This kind of boat are crazy and fun.

A friend of me have -06 Baja With 2x420hp and last year he did 64knots.
This year the engines are overloaded with two kenny bell (not that brand, but the same sort). Last year at 3500rpm he did 45knots and this year he did 54 knots at the same rpm with new props in wrong size...just testing. He expect 72-75knots with right props... is that crazy and fun. YES
