Ever wonder what 3 LS-A's winding up at the same time sounds like?

music to my ears! Each of those outboards contains a 557HP LSA. they're big bucks. I think something outrageous like $70k. A company called 7 marine makes them. The video is nothing special but DAT SOUND. It reminds me of the sound the string section of an orchestra makes while warming up.

its not insane fast for a boat, definitely moves out for what it is though. A 42' center console definitely doesn't have a hull or aerodynamics made for all out speed, manufacturers specs say 23,000lbs with 4 merc verados on it as well

That would be a sweet party rig
the more i look at center consoles, the more i like them. awesome for a day boat, and you can get a good sized one with a cabin too. Hose the SOB down and its clean.

If I was going to buy a performance boat (and had the money) I would buy a nice Fountain.



My uncle has a center console down in Florida. He swings hard from it. They seem like a good value, but id probably not buy one unless I fished.

The only real down side to the center console is if you like to boat early or late in the year there isn't much to block the wind, my dad has had 3 or 4 of them now all boston whalers they ride real nice, if I had the ok from my wife to buy a bigger performance boat I would probably go with a formula fastech or a donzi 33zx, I have no use for a boat that big tho a realistic pipe dream would be a donzi classic 22 with a procharger on it, or a 22 eliminator Daytona with the same 496 mag ho and a blower

for a center console, yes. Offshore go fast boat, still yes, but pretty common. Most guys with a 40 something foot boat have a pair of BBCs with north of 800hp each. There's a local guy out of yorkville with a 42 fountain, just finished building a pair of 552" BBC, with whipples, making 1250 each on pump gas.

40 foot is a lot of drag to try and push, I was always impressed with the big zx donzi's the move out pretty well with 700-800hp twins

the hydrasports are made in the mastercraft factory... they are pretty neat. they share a lot of the materials with mastercraft.

i got to see my first 42' Hydrasports in january.- was fucking awesome. very well built...
