Thank you for the compliment .
Coming back to a question you have asked before Ireaney
Our foam and veneered doors have a weight of 120 kilo per cubic meter while solid veneered marine ply doors weight close to 840 kilo per cubic meter
The actual weight difference in the FastCat between one and the other is 240 kilo and that is a lot of wine or a generator or just extra speed .

Greetings
Gideon

Does anyone on here actually own one? I'd like to see pictures. Of the interiors. Their website is sorely lacking in that department.

What were the controls of the propulsion and regeneration system? Do they have to comply with some ISO standard, if so which one?

It sounds like the propulsion system is now certified, is this the case?

Looking forward to your response

Regards

Alan

I would like to see some "real, guy-type" porn shots.
Like pulling the pan............errr, lifting the shir............errrr..........taking the cover off the electrical panel, showing the bilge pumps, steering controls, you know, guy stuff. I want to get really excited. Seeing the flowers that will never stay in place no matter what the seas are or how stable the cat is doesn't do much for me.

You know I will never be able to afford one but I am pretty sure a lot of us voyeurs would like to see "underneath"!!!

Come on Gideon, give it up!

I will ask my technical staff to take pictures of the so called technical stuff but there is not much to see since we use a buss cabling system since hull number 3 but I have attached some pictures of number 002
The Green Motion system is all plug and play wired so all wiring is in a rubber tube not visible and connected with mill spec connectors very boring but safe.

Greetings

Gideon
