Project: Metamarine TNT 51 Magnum

Metamarine from Italy is a very interesting young boat builder, and here it presents a new flagship the TNT 51 Magnum, its third production model.  Founded by the passion of Marco Pennesi who went on to race in the Endurance series with great success; first winning the Supersport championship in 2004 and then taking the prime Evolution series in 2010 with the 46 model.  This new model TNT 51 Magnum continues to represent Marco's tribute in racing of a fast diesel powerboat, with yacht comfort, high technology, and impressive sea keeping abilities.  It will feature a large cockpit deck able to seat eight persons, with an interior having two separate cabins sleeping four, plus two extra berths in the convertible dinette.  Power will be twin 950hp engines with Metamarine home made surface drives rudder system, trim tabs, and propellers.  Performance which is the prime motivator of the TNT 51 Magnum will be a top speed of 70 knots, and a cruise of 50 knots which gives a range of eight hours or 400 nautical miles.
