Default 110+ mph, stv euro ski 2000



This on local Craigslist...$25K.

Guaranteed to do at least 110MPH...my GAWD...

Nothing said about livewells, fish locker, etc., 260HP outboard...
Never saw one of these before...and, no, I'm not tempted...my life is in a "no wake zone"...

But, I would like to rent it for an hour or so...

tough crowd...there is more to life than fishing for cobias in saltwater in Florida...believe it or else!

This thing is very interesting, at least to me. I suspect it would be the ultimate chick-magnet, too...15 minutes @ 115mph, with some tight turns, and their thighs would just....nevermind

Another photo from the Craigslist ad:



Who actually buys these kinds of boats?
I must live a sheltered life, but have never seen one like this on local waters, ever.

It is impractical and dangerous.

So, you need a good PFD, and diapers...and a good fiberglass man afterward. A fun afternoon is not exactly cheap.

Is a 115MPH boat like this even insurable?

Again, WHO BUYS THESE THINGS???

Just sold mine,first of year. Best driving experience ever. Would do 110 safely, 115 and more if you raise the jack plate. It was a 6o AM run, back on the trailer by 8:00.
I'am an old fart, it was my last hurrah in a fast boat. I did just pick up a 38 Fountain with trip opti 300s.

Seen a few others post recently about Fountains not having rod holders.
18 from the factory on mine 26 counting down stairs storage and I sure can't run that many rods. LOL

Guys on the rivers buy those a lot. They also run them a lot on the mountain lakes in Calif. .
I would think that rice rocket on water Babesaurus has would run up there over 80
