Allblack Racing Sets New Powerboat Record
The Allblack Racing team, in partnership with FPT Industrial, set another world record in the summer when the team completed the Cork–Fastnet–Cork race in just 2 hours, 6 minutes and 47 seconds (average speed 62.75mph [100.99km/h]. The new record has been ratified by the Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM), while the Irish Powerboat Club has commissioned a trophy – named the FPT Allblack Trophy – to award to the next team to break the record. Until then, the trophy will be held at the oldest yacht club in the world: the Royal Cork Yacht Club.
The record was achieved by the Allblack SL44 powerboat, powered by two FPT Industrial N67 560hp engines. The engines have a 6.7L displacement and four valves per cylinder, delivering a maximum power of 560hp.
This achievement consecrates the long-term partnership between FPT Industrial and the Allblack Racing team, and adds another prize to the team’s growing collection.
