    I am looking for a name/manufacturer of a boat that is built for one or two riders. The hull design is much like that of a personnel catamaran without sails. A motor of between 15-25 hp. is mounted in the back. The passengers are also seated more aft. The vessel is only used for cruising at high speed while using little power. There is only enough deck space for the passengers and a place for a gas tank to rest on. I have included a quick sketch of what the vessel looks like all I need is your help for a name/manufacturer or even better a web link.

    I dont know details for your boat Im afraid but I built a remote control model very similar to that, though ti was powered by an aero engine. It went like a rocket and was almost impossible to control! Have you actually had it in action?

    Thundercat is the ultimate and fastest catamaran

    Have you seen the range of thundercat 4.1m inflatables, originating in South Africa, they are the ultimate tough surf boat, and really the state of the art in the type of boat you have in mind,there are regular races for them in Australia often featured on TV
    the manufacturers are Gemini, Prestige and others in SA
