Default Latest work project 1114hp boat

So I have spent a lot of time lately getting this machine dialed in.

Quick specs. It's a 2010 regulator 34SS. Originally it came speced with Yamaha 350's had a top speed of 50mph burning around 65 gallons an hour.

New motors, seven marine 557hp a piece. Cruises in the low 50mph range getting over 1 miles to the gallon and tops out at over 70

Not to shabby for a big heavy (14k lbs) off shore deep V center console.

Very cool. Still way faster than I'd want to go in the water. The water would have to be like glass out there for me to feel comfortable.

I'd really like to get a close look and see what they do to squeeze those LS motors in there... LSA's out of the cts-v/zl1 if i recall?

You'd be amazed at the seas those boats can eat up.

Trendsetter, what kind of electronics package is getting shown on those badass displays?

I've been in many boats but nothing quite like that. It looks like it'd be a fun ride to say the least.

That 7 marine shit is stupid expensive. A statement or deep impact with a few (4) on it would be fun. At that price I would be in a smith powered (RIP) skater.

Considering they only have been around since 2010 and they didn't make anything before 2011 and add in the fact they are very low volume it is highly unlikely.
