A couple of years back I looked over the Buzzi boats 3 engined troop rapid response carriers based around the 40' hull my mate enjoyed thrashing them although he mainly used the wave piercer which was great in the rough stuff, better than the ribs for maintaining speed when the going gets tough

Pity he didn't ask them BEFORE he invaded Iraq and pushed the price of oil through the roof...........

Yes I agree reliability could pose a problem another friend years back regularly worked on the one's I mention which were the 630-650hp units detuned to try for reliability and their were 3 to each Buzzi boat

I had the opportunity to make a 10 minutes run in a Buzzi rib, driven by Fabio Buzzi, during a Genoa boat show - possibly in '94 ? - and it was a great experience.

The boat had 2xSeatek engines, the sea was far from quiet, at least 1.5metre waves, and we were running to 60 knots like in a bed !

Great !

mollers - that is "Gen 2" in the picture - gone now.... only the grey ones left here - and you wont get more than 60kts out of them - altho exceptional in the weather :-)

all they need now is ullman's and soundproofing in them and it might be comfortable and fast and quiet....... but then again..... maybe not?

Nice Vid .. but why 'o' why do folks want the sound of death/thrash metal when they could be listening to those engines all the time ..that is proper music
