Anyone driven/helmed one of these?

Pac 22 Jet

Looks a good project but seems expensive.

Pete7 will be able to comment more.

But I believe this boat has been for sale for a while now.

I wondered that, also says it can destroy icebergs - sounds a tad heavy!

Henshaws military tubes are superb. They had a set in when I was there in there last summer, very impressive.

However not sure on the P22 especially for that price. Having driven one jet P22 that was a complete shambles and mainly went sideways I think I would rather stick to a normal sternpower stern drive,which are quite robust.

There are several P22s on the market and the one in Scotland looks very nice, perhaps a refurbished one from Neville

They are the new "Stealth" version that we have been working on for the military!! Very lightweight and with an incredibly low radar signature, but take for ever to inflate!!!
