Check out this cool powerboat! Leoden was lucky enough to visit this amazing boat at the Panmure Yacht club a couple of weeks ago. So what's so special about this boat? Well for one thing, it has an amazing design and cool graphics on the outside of the boat. The Earthrace set a new record for a powerboat to circumnavigate the globe. The time was 60 days, 23 hours and 47 minutes, over 2 weeks faster than the old record.
It is 78 feet long and can reach speeds of up to 40 knots. It was built in Auckland, NZ and was ready to launch in February 2006. The Earthrace cost about $3 million dollars to build. Did you know that it uses 100% biodiesel fuel? If you didn't know, this type of fuel is natural, nontoxic and biodegradable. In other words, its good for the environment.
The Earthrace sure is one cool boat! Well done Leoden!
