The A22 is an excellent boat to fly as well. Usually always makes a soft landing. Granted I have had the odd flight where I have had time to think about how high I actually was!


It was also great fun to get passed by a jetski and then just throttle up and cruise past it and wave....

I imagine a single 200hp would be just about adequate. Two of them must be... startling.
I think Martini's is an Arctic 27...Hell of a Build!...But I wouldn't want his Fuel Bill!

We didn't get that speed out of it for long. The boat soon slowed down we couldn't understand why. Might be down to ingress into the hull, tired engines more fuel etc etc We averaged around 50/55knts.
We often had the PAC 28 waft pass in large sea's. That thing can do max speed in almost any sea

We are on about the Arctic 24 edd. Different beast all together than the Artic 22. When they swapped the twin Suzuki 140's for optishite 115's on the A22, that was disappointing
