Have u considered 200 VMax

Just to say that I have purchaed in ther summer a 7 mtrs rib with a Yam 200 bhp VMax. I chose this engine because it deliveres 225bhp @ 5800 revs, is economical, quite and has the 2 stroke reliability. Is also very economical with 4 people onboard and full load consumption is about 1.1ltr/mile @ 3800 revs and 38 knts (NOT MILES).
Also I purchased this from SAfrica with the boat as package. However, the engine alone with controls etc cost about 5,000 plus shipping expences. Has full guarantee and CE marked.
Have attached a pic of my boat and engine when it was tested in SAfrica before delivery.

Is near Swaderlam

Hi Charles,

Is near a place called Swadelam (or something like that) but don't know where. The guy who's driving is the race driver (we have a race team in SAfrica, Greece and the UK - in both countries UK and Greece I race the baot same as that but with some modifications for FORMULA 2 racing) and the girl is his sister.
Have some photos of the racing version if you are interested.

Manos

Yes exactly. You are correct. The boat has taken 1st place two ywers running now. in the Anculhas. The chaps who manufacture the boat are realy great. Real good people and we are noew friends.
I have ordered a racing boat (7mtrs same as in photo but with some modifications for FORMULA 2 BIBOA Rules) to race it next year in the UK and in the summer will do Greece too.
There is also a 5.40 same as this one coming in production very soon. That will go like a rocket.
The 7 mtr with 4 people and full load (fuel anchors etc) at 4000 revs gives 48 knots. I will have to take it up to 6200 revs to see what the top speed is. But I bet will be FAST.
I'm going to visit this place in a months time (I hope).
