"Flying Target" Is in a class of her own. She has been lovingly restored and maintained by her owner of 25 years (He is only the 3rd owner since new). This boat is a one of a kind. She is powered by a 1300 hp Allison aircraft engine that has been marinized with Closed Cooling, MSD Ignition, and modern V-12 automotive distributors. This impresive engine is coupled to a custom transfer case that transfers power to two separate transmissions and then to two shafts and props. The Two Cockpit Areas have seating for 9 people and with her high freeboard and bottom design, a little rough water will not keep you tied to the dock.
