True, but that's still nearly 400 litres which is substantially more than most 6.7 metre RIBs.

Sounds like a lot of RIB for just over 15k, but wouldn't want the fuel bill!

It's not the fuel that makes it American, it's that 350 Magnum. Can you imagine how thirsty it must be.

Bet it wouldn't be as bad as some of the older 2 stroke outboards...

Got to be honest I hate Yank cars but I LOVE their engines!!!

No they arn't italian. Made in America. Nautica International http://www.nauticaintl.com/

Yeah the roar that thing must make accelerating. Also, I really like how the Ad states "1 year pre-paid Sirius subscribrion". How many RIB's come with a year of satelite radio pre-paid.
