Halmatic Atlantic 22

What size of outboard would you need to push this along?

I believe one went on the deaville rally, driven and owned by the altlantic web man who's name escapes me. I believe it had a 250 Mariner on it.
Heres the engine:

The description is a little confusing thought the Atlantics were 21 feet long and made by the RNLI themselves in which case they had 2 x 70 evinrudes as standard fit. The Halmatic Arctics had a deep V hull all the way to the stern like the ADS pointed out. However agree with ADS, a big V6 2 stroke at 30 gallons an hour should push her along nicely

I've seen these with a twin setup aka: RNLI syle just didn't know what the power output was. Perhaps it could be fitted with a next generation desiel engine?

The atlantic 21 was a halmatic rib which is supplied to the lifeboat who then fitted it out with there own equipment. They use twin 70hp evinrudes. The boat on boats and outboards is an arctic 22 which was built by halmatic and supplied to the army and the navy.

This boat will take anything from single 90hp to 225hp or twin 75hp upto twin 175hp.

I have just had one of these in which I sold, It had twin 115HP engines and did about 45 knots flat out.

These are one of the best built boats which will take you through most weather (skipper dependant).

The Mod Artic 22 with twin Mariner 90, 2 strokes will do about 36knts. We have tried one with twin 135 strokes on, i cant remember how quick it was but we were told by the customer that it was to fast and too twitchy, so they went for the twin 90s.

Hightower, are you interested in this boat or just inquisitive? It's not too far away if you need someone to take a peak at it. I'm familiar with Ferry Marine. They always seemed reasonable guys to me.
