crazy boat setup

saw this in a marina in Bahrain and thought I would share, x4 Yamaha HP 350, custom paint and stickers to match the hull. Wonder how much fuel this thing uses in an hour

I guess it doesn't matter with their fuel prices.

I'm no expert but shouldnt those props extend beyond the bottom of the Transom/V/hull? the engines appear to be fully down

don't think the boat manufacturer would design the hull (transom well) without taking shaft length into consideration...

Maybe I am odd (don't answer that) but if I had the money for a big boat like that I wouldn't consider outboards - have to be big inboard diesels.

I wonder how well balanced it is, that must be a fair weight far aft. How much would one of those engines weigh?
