Pretty incredible, that size of boat doing 60 knots! impressive!
How many total litres per hour at cruise and flat out?
I guess if you can afford to buy a boat like that then the running costs arent an issue really. I'll just keep dreaming for now....

Very, very impressive Andre!

Cheers Robbie,

This is for a commercial operator who will be doing short blasts out to sea ie; so called thrill rides or white knuckle rides. You don't really want to know how much fuel @ WOT

There is a Parker 10 mtr Baltic twin diesel in your neck of the woods based at Uig and for the seas there that is what one needs. I have been there twice and must say you have a great cruising area, just loved it.

Indeed Andre, we are very lucky with the cruising area we have on our doorstep. The only trouble is getting the weather to enjoy it up here! Ah yes, I've seen that 10 metre Parker moored at the Miavig Jetty in Uig. What a machine! Did you meet Murray Macleod (seatrek) when you were up in Uig? He's a great guy with a lot of local knowledge to show you around all the hidden gems in Uig. I've been out on the Parker Baltic at Ribex twice and been very impressed with the ride. It was a twin 225 optimax rig one year and then Twin Verados the last year i went. Sturdy looking boats

Hi Robbie, yes I have met Murray and indeed a fine guy. I agree with the weather however when I was up there it was OK - no rain at all. Loved the small bays with sandy beaches and crystal clear water. Only one snag - bl***y cold water

The rib is starting commercial operation in 2 weeks , i should have some more good pics by then in some rough weather ;-) the guy isn't going to be running any trips until his crew complete a fast boat handling course in gdynia Poland. Very sensible ;-) 3 x 300 is a lot of power to handle especialy in łeba when even on calm days the breaking waves are a minimum of 1,5 meters .....
