    This is one of the pics I like best! It reminds me of the way a V24 drives....

    I do love the way the V24 handles, and its recovery if you make a mistake, and its rough water handling.....

    It does not work as well with other drive combinations: it and the DuoProp are a marriage made in heaven.

    I have had other boats with the duoprop, and other drives on the V24 hull, and they dont work without the other!

    Here are a few renders of the latest version on the drawing board - open top outboard version with or without tubes:

    Now why on earth would you want to permanently glue your fenders to the side of the boat?

    As with everything - it depends! Adding tubes would add up to £10k to the price - the price is always individual depending on the level of got out.

    Our new website only went live this week and we will be adding to it more often now, should you have any specific questions my email is on the website.

    ;) Very nice - beautiful lines, and with the aggressive steps should fly through the chop.

    The first one does fly through the chop very well. It also sits supprisingly high in the water and pops onto the plane very quickly....
