1989 Hydrostream HST PowerBoat with EXCEL V6 Yamaha Outboard. Clocked using GPS at 83mph! Hydrostream is known for their speedboat design, and this HST is no exception. Her HST Hull is reportedly the fastest designed by the company and a rare find! Combine the speed, with her awesome 80's retro paint job, and you have a real head turner at the lake! She's been in both fresh and brackish water, and always garage kept. Did we mention this boat is really FAST, and fun to drive with the foot pedal throttle! She's all ready for some fun."

Wow, what a great boat. Built for one thing, to run fast in skinny water. This boat is best for rivers and calm lakes. The power plant is a big block 454 ci Chevrolet engine tied to a Berkeley jet drive. The custom engine was installed in 2015, customized to a marine application by a mechanic in California. The engine was placed on a dyno and confirmed at 420 HP Other than a stereo system there are little extras. With a cruise speed of 50 MPH and a top speed of 65 MPH, this boat can almost fly. I am sure you have seen boats like these taking a wild ride down a river. This would de...
