any idea who built this?

Hi all. just saw this rather nice looking rib on the internet, and am wondering if anyone knows who built it? its a 10m with twin 150hp VW diesels coupled to surface drives - seems a little underpowered, or are surface drives really that efficient?

Seems an odd combination to have such low powered engines to the surface piercing drives. Should have a couple of Merc 496's in there as a minimum.

it is odd and i am surprised, thats why i wanted to find out if it is built by a known manufacturer of if it is a one of project, which would make it less attractive. if noone here has seen this kind of boat before, i assume its safe to assume that it is the later
good weekend everyone!

How are the engines indentified as 150 hp? I have personnel experience of the VW 1.9tdi 130hp engine tuned (with a remap only) to 182hp. With increased jet sizes the 150hp version has been remapped to 210-220 hp and the torque was increased to very high levels. Having spoken to the software guy he explained that the maps on the original engines are made for the lowest quality fuel the car is likely to use and as we are in the UK and the fuel is high quality the maps can be altered, with amazing results

PS Best 250 I have spent modifying a car

Glad to hear you have personnel experience with these, so where exactly are the jets located?

Not neccessarily, surface drives would allow you to make best use of relatively low power outputs. I went to the Genoa show a few years ago, and was suprised at the number of surface drive ribs on show, mainly coupled to low power VW, Fiat and Alfa Romeo motors, as well as some jap diesel motors.

I do indeed, just assumed an output increase would infer this, sorry if I confused anyone. PS Jags are never recalled.
