Used one for a year a few years ago.
It had twin 115 Mariner 4-stroke outboards.

Under powered but a great hull, especially in a big sea.

Good boat

Spent some time with a charter company running a 730 with twin 150 optis and then twin 200 optis.

Rigged for 12 passengers and was a great boat. Fast, stable, flew well and solid.

Traded up to an 8m Gemini with twin 200 optis but this was never as good - too big really - never flew well.

Just trying to get them to get a 730 again - the 8m was pinched

I managed the 7.3 mtr that Searider is referring still going strong goo hulls. Do not have high thoughts of the light grey colour they use for toobs however

Rogue-They are from South Africa,I didn't think you liked any boats from SA
Not wanting to appear cynical but did you like this one cos you were paid to look after it?
