To get a boat to do that sort of distance (100km - 62 miles) you may need to add battery packs to get the extended range.

I believe Brendan wants an electric boat that will do 100Km per hour and the SV27 is not it (well not out of the box).

not saying it is not impossible, I have read of some getting pretty close after extensive spending but why would you want to spend a truck load of cash and dump it in the 27 when you can buy other electric that will get you much closer without having to shed a lot a cash to achive it.

Brendan,
Replace the troublesome Fuji with a full mod Zen 260 and you won't be far from your 100Km per hour goal.

Dan.
