Underpowered ! 18 knots max it probably will not plane at a sensible cruise rpm. Needs another 100+ hp....

I sort of like it, must have cost a fortune to put together!
But that helming position look like you wouldn't bugger all apart from ahead
Agreed on a lot of boat for the money.

I'm guessing that it's the prototype that they had on show at Seawork in 2010

Seawork 2010

I wonder if any more ever got built?

HMS 'BUCK ROGERS' should indeed have a bigger engine or twin jets... 18 knots on a 6LPA.....she must be really heavy (displacement of 5 MT?). It would make a really cool ambulance in Venice though.

Interesting concept, a rib with a boot.

Styling is bit odd, front end from an x wing fighter and the back end from a Vauxhall Victor, some nice light clusters would finish up the back end.

Might be handy for shallow water survey work?
I must go down to the sea again to the lonely sea and the sky
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by
the wheels kick and the winds song and the white sails shaking
a grey mist on the seas face and grey dawn breaking
