Here are some photos of the rollover of a Mai Tai Cruiser being built here in Melbourne Australia.

We are looking forward to building the interior - it is like starting a brand new project.

What do you plan to power her with? My new boat is about the same size and weight. I hitting 35 MPH with a Yamaha 115 at WOT.

Fantastic Gary,

I wanted to build this design but didn't feel like I could make it fit. Glad to see someone else is building this beautiful boat. Congratulations on the successful flip. Please keep us posted on further progress.

Thankyou to everyone for the kind words. We will try to post more progress photos - we are not real fast with this build so it could take some time .

Bill, we haven't really determined the motor size at this stage - but we think at least 150hp and certainly a 4 stroke, possibly Yamaha (because they seem to be very popular here and they are not as heavy as some of the others). Some Mai Tai examples we have come across are powered with as much as 225hp.

I think the 150 would be a good choice. That should give the 35 to 40 mph (56 to 64). To get 10 more mph (16) will take almost 300 hp. How much you would run in those ranges I don't think is worth it.
