Not that they know of - at the SportsBoat and RIB show they weren't full production engines, and I didn't talk to them at S'oton so they may still be pre production testing?

they've taken the v8 out and put in a supercharged v6 and it's even faster, by talking to the guys it seem that developement of more ideas will keep this package in semi production for a while, the original package worked well but as with everything that is "out of the box" so to speak, there is always another idea, i don't think they are ironing out bugs they're just trying out new idea's.
i think it's a lovely package but with everything new, people will be slow to see it's true beauty, good luck to mark and co for committing to such a unique venture

The 350 SCI V6 that has been installed is a full production unit and as such no other manufacturers have yet got one installed but there will be others following I'm sure.
Engine is still very tight but have seen just shy of 46kts during testing.
