The boat is designed and built by the Greek boat builder TOP LINE.
It has a stepped hull which to my supprise is very steady at any speed and during cornering. It comes to the plane quite quickly although the props currently ventilate a little and may be we need to put the motors one notch down. This will have to see when the boat is in Egypt and it will depend very much on the prevailing local weather.
LOA 9.6 meters
Beam 2.9 meters (inside beam 1.80 mtrs)
Fuel, 2x349 ltrs fuel tanks plus 2x100 ltrs reserve
Is powered by 2x200 Mercury Optimax currently with BRAVO I 26" pitch lab finished props that give a top speed at WOT of 61.4 knots. And cruises comfortably in force 5 between 55-58 knots without too much banging (relative to the speed). The props will change to acheive higher top speed.
The consumption is about 0.86ltr/mile per engine at 4500 revs and at WOT about 1.05 ltr/mile per engine.
That's about it. It will look better with the decals and the stickers from the sponsors. The deck will laso be airbrush painted. We wioll do some more tets with the new props. But I will not have time to post any photos as the boat will be leaving for Egypt. May be later on.
