All OR 17'S are 18', actually I think 18' 2".........I think it measures 5.6 but I can't remember exactly.
Jean knows about it, he told me.

Bizarre then to call it a 17 and list it as 5.2m when it is in fact 5.6 and +18'.
Just can't see the reasoning behind that ... c'est la vie

Well if Surflaunch / rough sea is on the Menu here is another option that has surely earned its stripes

Sold a Demo boat 3months ago so (un)fortunately can only make a new one  :-)

5.1 Length , 2.2m Beam 2x40-60Hp  or single 70-115Hp

Original 16,6ft Acecraft Seaglyder hull

It is a bit, maybe the 17 sounded better or was a more marketable size :dunno:
Its a pity he stopped making them as there is a demand here in KZN, I have had about five guys come round to look at it at home and one of them ended buying one from the new owners in Namibia at a stupid price, something like 200k :shk
