A few pics of my 65" Ballantine apache running a 62cc zenoah. I have had a few other apaches but think this might just be my favorite.


Will probably do an 84" soon since I have the mold.

RE: apache owners
how fast are they

RE: apache owners
65in goes 40mph, hoping some props work will improve that, 57in went 56mph with throttle to go, but boat wasn't very stable so it was a 2 short runs. smooth as silk 53 all-day long with different prop.

Have several. 65" with a single 60CC zen (44MPH) . an 84" with triple zen 23 powered hull (40MPH) and another 65 with twin zen 23 power (45). but here is my latest project. 60" resurected 1989 hull that was a shelf queen. going single ZIKK and RCM drive set up. oops forgot one. twin Bonzi BX4 powered 57" (scary fast).

Here's another. This is my MHZ 60" with Blata, gearbox, twin S6. She doesn't break any records, but she is sure fun to run in the bigger water while my CAT buddies [&o] are on dry-dock :D.

RE: apache owners
Yes, some very nice Apache's! I wish we all lived close to each other so we could have a big Apache fun run! I really like the way the Apache's perform on the water, espically when its rough out, thats when they really start to shine. The lake i mainly run mine on is about 40 acres but is very flat and open, thus the lake gets alot of wind/chop. Keep the picture's comming, one day i will own the 84''!

RE: apache owners
