Twin 450s! Nice. You need to film some WOT runs (after break-in of course) - I'm guessing close to 80 top speed?

Congrats! The 10-foot beam will seat a lot of people. What's the total people-capacity?

We are thinking Top speed of 74 and Cant remember the capacity, as it went down due to 168 gallon fuel tank and twin engines. Im thinking around 16 people

Stop posting Pontoon Porn. This is supposed to be a family friendly forum. :p My favorite pic...that motor. Oh boy, that is something else. Now that said, the rest of it is pretty spectacular too.

Pros: Potentially 74 mph...WOW! Con: 168 gallon fuel tank and the rate of fuel burn...YIKES!

Those two engines probably cost as much as my entire boat. She's a beauty for sure!

Gorgeous Benny! I thought engines were always installed at final dealers facility. Surprised to see them at factory. Of course , this isn't the standard build that is normally being built. I am reposting my joke photo of the "technician painting the 450R fuel pump" because it is kinda funny. I am just jealous. The second helm drink holder is actually a place to keep the fueling credit card so it is handy. :):DIMG_4698.jpg

My assumption is that because this probably doesn't travel on the normal boat carrier that they use where they can fit multiple boats on. This will have the wide load flagging I believe.

If it isn't done being built yet you should get them to install an intercom system from the back to the front!! Hehe would be funny just to tell guests "Oh and this button is for the intercom......".

deestrong, to help offset the cost should invite all members of this forum to take a "test drive" with you for a small fee once you have the boat in the water. That would result in several of us getting an immediate and bad case of PADs. Ha!
