This boat is at the leading edge of technology. To drive her through three foot seas at 50 mph is an unforgettable experience. She has the added fascination of having been created by two of the most famous English and Italian names--Rolls Royce and Ferrari. One of only 39 made, she originally retailed for $395,000. She appeared in a episode of Bay Watch, where her finish was marred by make-up paint, resulting in a new $30,000 paint job and a $6,000 re-upholstery and carpeting. Since that time, she has been kept under canvas cover in a warehouse in Honolulu.
A June 2001 survey is available. She is in "like-new" condition and must be seen and driven to be appreciated.
Both helm and passenger seats can be converted to 'stand up' style.
There is a small recessed chain locker in the forepeak, followed by a cubby cabin with double V-berth with mattress, fitted carpets and Porta-Potty head with cover
Up two steps is the cockpit with helm to port and passenger seat to starboard, followed by a leather upholstered bench seat for three passenger.
Next aft is a large engine hatch that doubles as a sun deck. There are three Naughahyde white cushions for the sun deck. Another engine room hatch aft is followed by a stow-away swim step on the stern
