The 6.5m is rated for a max of 225hp, the 6m is rated at 150hp I think....

Wow this is an old thread!

That boat is as below:

Ready to drive away Including VAT with a 100EFI Mercury £28,935

• BananaShark in house moulded “Ultradry” hull
• Distinctive 2 tone tapered Hypalon 1200mg large black D fender, 4 grab handles with full warranty
• Seating: 2 Double jockey pods, rear bench seat for 3 – seats 7 people safely
• Double centre console with instrument recesses
• Optional Tekdek teak effect flooring
• Mercury SmartCraft instruments (optional on some engines), including fuel flow rate, fuel used, fuel level, trim/tilt, engine temperature, water pressure, air temperature, sea temperature, RPM, speed, oil level, engine hours, etc
• Optional red LED deck lights
• Bow cleat and bow fair lead
• Elephant trunks
• Hydraulic steering
• Automatic bilge pump and elephant trunk
• Raised bow deck with anchor locker
• Fire extinguisher in moulded GRP holder
• 91 litre fuel tank
• Water separator and fuel isolation valve
• Battery and isolation switch
• Transom ski eyes
• Optional “A” frame
• Optional sound systems including “Ipod” based systems


The specs are very flexible as we make to order - we can do the same hull without the rear deck and bench seat with simple jockey seat for a lot less!

Pablo - that is with the 115 EFI Mercury - which engine would you like it with - we will recertify with whatever engine you like so long as we consider it safe for that hull. I assume you mean dropped for CE purposes? I think you will find that the photo above is considerable proof that the construction is adequate!

Neilda - If you land transom first the landings are quite pleasant! (nothing was squashed in the making of this photo!)

Jizm - We would consider fitting a 150 to this hull if it was for use as a diveboat and driven responsibly, divers carry a lot of kit and the extra power allows them to cruise without having to use WOT the whole time, but with that motor on a regular boat it would be a very fast boat and certainly exceed 55 mph be a decent margin, the 115 does 46mph on a GPS average on a two way run!

We haven't tried one with a 100 on yet - the 120hp diesel waterjet version does mid 30's comfortably and copes with rough stuff very well indeed, I would think it would still manage 40mph with a 100hp four stroke on.

How much is alot less for a boat with none of the fancy bits, ie double jockey seat and normal fibreglass deck?
Still want the biggest engine though!
