Is a 21' Hallett fitted with a 496 CI big block Chev engine. The engine has twin TO4S/TA45 turbochargers, intercooler and Autronic SMC model fuel injection.

The engine produces 1000 HP at 6000 RPM and the boat has a top speed of 105 MPH.

The boat is very heavy and was designed for rough water racing in England.


We became involved with this boat when it was at the 1997 world titles in Sydney Australia. The boat was shipped from England to Australia only to have the engine fail while testing before the world tittles started.

They borrowed a engine from another competitor and we tuned the engine. The boat had no more problems and finished third in the world titles.

We were asked to maintain the engine setup. The engines are shipped to Australia for rebuilds and upgrading.

At the 1999 world titles in Spain the boat was the number one boat for the English team and finish second outright..
