Travelling at 200mph without leaving the ground would be, most people would agree, an exciting prospect.
Smooth tarmac in a high performance car would be thrilling enough for most, but for that extra frisson of excitement, some take to the water in Class 1 Offshore Powerboats.
To achieve 200mph on the water takes a lot more effort than propelling a car along tarmac. Two 9 litre, turbocharged V-8 engines producing around 1350 HP each, with a fuel consumption of around 170 US gallons per hour per engine is required to propel a 47 foot catamaran at these speeds.
