AMENDMENT – OFFSHORE CATAMARAN WORLD SPEED RECORD

Categories: News.

Updating our last post where I am reliably informed that the offshore catamaran world speed record in  August 2014 was not achieved in a Victory built catamaran but aboard an American built Mystic catamaran called Spirit of Qatar Al Adaa-an powered by twin 4000 hp Lycoming T55 turbine engines as fitted in Chinook helicopters.

SPEED.MYSTIC.50

The joint US-UK effort was headed by Britain’s Steve Curtis and driver Trevor Leigh, and the craft topped 244 mph, which is remarkably quick for an offshore catamaran.
