70 feet of grunt and hitherto new levels of luxury
Reviewed Oct 2016
Electric bow and sternthrusters shunt the 41,920kg silver 70 sideways like a crab, pushing back the morning westerly that was pinning us to the outer marina arm. Unshackled, unbridled, unconquerable, we range down Pittwater before heading out to the deep blue sea.
At theoretical hull speed of 10.7kts, averaging about 64lt/h in total, we have a cruising range of more than 1500nm. But it's not until you advance the throttles on the V12s that your world is transformed. Before you can say make mine white and one sugar, we are cruising at 30kts at 2100rpm, which is maximum continuous revs, and topping out at more than 33kts on the way home before the lopping swells...
