It was done for a big film thats coming out next year. This is one of several boats!!. The outboards were fitted because after 2 weeks filming the engines come off and the back of the boat got cut off for more film work. Outboards are very easy to fit and take off!
Welllll so long as its not a long term application.....
What's the project called? will want to check it out when the film comes out.
At 40 Tonnes it appears to be a lot lighter than it looks...probably due to less than adequate structural members inside (again due to the short term scope/application?)
16 Knots is indeed commendable. I can't imagine that rig planing, yet it wouldn't be possible for it to reach 16 knots in displacement mode? what's the LOA?
