    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    I know the owner of that company. This boats are extreme in any kind of dimension. They won multiple awards. Watch the Videos and see how this thing cuts through the water - amazing!

    However 3100HP may not sound too much to @intouch - doesn't it? smiley


    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    Cigarette racing team is still based in Miami but all their work now is custom and I don't think there is anything under 38 feet anymore.  There was  a previous Mercedes Cigarette if memory recalls that was done around the time of the SLR. That AMG looks like 50-60 feet and w/ 3100HP probably good for 70-75mph. Big numbers and even bigger money.

    That speed on water must feel like 300mph in a car!

    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    Just asked my friend. He said that on the GT-S with 3100 HP the top speed is estimated at more than 135 MPH! 


    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    Crazy fast.

    Couple of weeks ago we did a crossing at 38kn in 5 feet waves in a 53'. It was fun for 5 mins but honesty the othe 30mins seemed very very long. A lot of banging and hard landings. Cannot imagine how hard it must be at the above speeds.

    That's race boat speed, scary stuff in an open cockpit, but very impressive.

    Holy Crap!  I bet that thing can't go very far before refueling at that speed...

    PRICE TAG?


    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    Those are all over the lake of the ozarks. Neighbor had one for years from the original Miami factory. We have poker runs and top speed shoot outs on the lake all the time. Some well over 180mph. Unlimited hydroplanes and drag boats as well. No speed limit at the lake except at night. It is good fun and there is lots of money being spent.  1300 miles of shoreline. 

    You can buy a two year old boat, same company, and go faster for half the money. Really bad investment when new. The most fun guage is the gallons per hour one. There is one for each motor. You can spend thousands on gas in one weekend.   Not exactly green but an effective Panty removal device. 

    They are also known as compensators. If you don't see it take another look. 


    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    No mention of the party cove Leawood?


    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    Google it. All kinds of videos out there.  I'm keeping it clean. Don't want to lose another topic. Panty removal.

    are seat belts required? as I don't see any.

    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    Boat and yacht gauges are always in gallons per hour... My last one was doing 70 gallons per hour at cruising speed (25kn).

    Amazing! Love these things. I saw a Cigarette Racing boat in Monaco once with the engine covers open - superb attention to detail in there.

    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    The seats act as seat belts and wrap you like in an amusement park ride no?


    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    No. You wear life vests. You need to be thrown clear and float when unconscious. Being in a sinking boat unconscious and belted in would be certain death.  Even the drag boats eject the driver in a crash unless they are inside a floating survival shell.  The force of the water flipping the boats can be so severe to just want to be clear of it sailing through the air on your own.  When racing to do also wear special helmets. 


    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    Speaking of boats, I have one  exactly like this one coming in April .  Looking forward to my wakeboard/wakesurf/wakeskate season !!!

    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    Where are you going to use it, if I may ask?

    Italy introduced that stupid law that not more than three persons (incl. the one doing wake boarding or waterskiing) can be on the boat, so going out with the boat with my wife and the two kids is basically illegal now. My wife loves wake boarding but it is not possible, unless you brake the law and Italian police is quite on the lookout for tourists who brake the law.

    I live on the biggest lake of Western continental  Europe . There is lots of space to play around .One of the last place of  freedom in Switzerland. No speed limits. Not many rules. And yes , the lake does hit around 24 degrees in summer. I can take 12 persons on this boat

    So maybe time to switch our favorite lake? Smiley Nah, we love Lake Garda but the new waterskiing/wake boarding rules are really annoying as hell.

    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    Ridiculous rule. 


    Re: AMG Boat...wow

    SciFrog:

    Ridiculous rule. 

    Very stupid indeed. Smiley

    We don't have our own boat and whenever we want to rent one with wake boarding/water skiing equipment, they see us four people and they don't allow it. We cannot ignore this rule for insurance reasons and of course because of the police (they love to check on tourists but they are usually very nice).

    Funny: if we are doing wake boarding or water skiing with a professional school, there is no restriction regarding the number of passengers on the boat. Weird.
