Sometimes it’s called Bilba, sometimes Bilboa, unfortunately she has not finished all of her races, but when she has finished, she was miles ahead of the others.

For us at Victory Design, this rather old red meteor has always been ‘Project V-cat’. Regardless of the engines being petrol – as for the original Lamborghini’s – or diesel as for the current configuration, V-cat has always been the fastest offshore Class 1 boat, both on rough and flat waters.

It is a fact that is testified by two Pole Position World Championships, one in 1996, the latest in 1998. The secrets for V-cat’s longevity are Lino Di Biase, a highly experienced technical manager, and probably the fact, back in 1993, we spent over 4000 hours to design and engineer her down to the smallest detail.
