‘White Warrior’ excels in home run.
A mid winter delivery voyage to Belgium took new owner Paul van Leerberghe just 7.5 hours. The 9m 'White Warrior' cruised the 165 miles at an average speed of 22 knots and used just 2 litres of fuel per mile.
Paul required a fast boat which would enable him to travel to wrecks up to 50 miles from his base at Nieuwpoort in Belgium. 'White Warrior' is a shortened 10.2m Cheetah with an overall length of 9m and the full 3.7m beam. The Cheetah is powered by twin 175hp Honda outboards cruising 22 knots at 3500 rpm with a top speed of 35 knots.

"The boat is amazing. The trip back to Nieuwpoort took just 7.30 hours. The boat was very soft on the water and also very powerful. With two litres of fuel for one mile at 22 a 23 knots I am very pleasedThank you and your employers for making such a nice job"
