Broker's Comments

Designed and built for the current owner Maryslim was a dream come true. She was to be slim, look sexy and go fast with comfort.

She achieved the 'Judges Special Award at the Motor Boat of the Year Awards 2008 - citing she was project completed that epitomised everything that is great about the British marine industry with a British mariner commissioning her, a British designer and British boat building skills.

The technical info goes on and on but her wave piercing hull is capable of ploughing through storms no other vessel would dare to - she is not planing or full displacement but semi-displacement, long thin hull runs in displacement while the she planes on her chines. The line of her bow is extremely sharp intended to make it easier to cut through the waves. The hull shape was originally based on a military design with the patent for this held by Adrian Thompson.

Portland to Rockall and back in 53 hours!! This 72ft wave-piercing vessel completed an epic voyage across the North Atlantic, clocking up 1,400nm in 53 hours 29 minutes and 52 seconds. Average speed of 26.6 knots for more than two days over the long weekend of 14-16 June 2014. This £1.8m powerboat was able to do this without refuelling its mammoth 14,000-litre fuel tank. Fuel consumption rate of less than 57.7 gallons per hour – not bad for a 1652 hp V12 twin turbocharged Caterpillar engine. Oh and don't forget her round Britain trip in 13 days.

All about speed and practicality there are six single berths with a separate heads and the forward cabin double V with another en suite heads 8 berths in total across 3 cabins. She appears very minimalist inside with no unnecessary linings etc.Her galley is quite substantial with everything you need from a large work space to prepare, fridges and freezer and electric hob and oven.

She truly is an incredible boat with still more incredible potential for her next lucky owner.
