Phenomenon: World’s Fastest Speedboat Debuts at Miami Boat Show

Feb. 12th, 2010 | Comments 0 | Make a Comment   
Luxury Boats: The fastest speedboat in the world, the Phenomenon, made its debut at the Miami Boat Show this month. This amazing 56-foot watercraft can accelerate to more than 220.5 mph, which is the current world record. Its four turbine engines give it a whopping 12,000 horsepower.

Engineers from NASA and Boeing as well as former US Naval architects and professional powerboat builders collaborated on designing the Phenomenon. Restaurateur Al Copeland Sr., the founder of Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits restaurant and a driver of the Popeyes Offshore race team, developed the prototype of Phenomenon. Unfortunately, Mr. Copeland succumbed to cancer and died before seeing his dream come to fruition. Al Copeland Jr. is finishing the job his father began.

Phenomenon met the world at the Miami Boat Show on Thursday, February 11, at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
