New X-Craft X8.5

Here are the first snapshots of our new X-Craft X8.5 with 4 X-Craft suspension seats and rear bench, powered with 2 X Mercury Verado 300hp. She is leaving for Miami in two weeks.
At the first sea trial she did 66 knots.
Better photo's will follow.

thanks. I prefer our version with sunbed also but the customer wanted it like this.
She is going to Miami, maybe it is to hot for a sunbed over there.
