Thanks Mollers!
But are you making fun of our boating cloths?
At around 3 minutes into the film, we are out into open sea. A person wouldn't survive for long with just a life jacket if he fell into the water. Love those suits

tony t, it's at the coast of Norway, Trondheim.
Very nice area, with a huge amount if large and small islands. This weekend we went on a boat/hiking trip to an island which rises 900 meters almost straight up from the sea.

Top speed is very dependent on wind/sea currents. Reached 59.2 knots two weeks ago, but with full tank (320 liter) and 3-4 people it usually is around 54-55 knots. I usually just cruise around 50-52 knots. At that speed this is probably one of the most economical ways to travel at sea, except for using sail and disregarding the (insane) first time "investment"...

The engine is based on the Yanmar 6LPA-STZP diesel engine and modified by Goldfish boat to 370 HP. They call it D-Max 370/380.
I know there has been some accidents with this engine in it's early days. The most infamous incident on Top Gear. I have not experienced any problems and I have not heard of anyone having trouble with these the last 4-5 years.
