Unknown Jet Boat Seen in Videos


I have always loved rc boats but all the ones people seem to love either go super fast, are too big, or go too slow, My idea of a perfect boat is like a regular ski/speed boat (like a cobalt or a searay) I bought a malibu wakestter from target and it went super slow. All I want is a boat that looks scale and puts out a good wake. Sooo, I was watching some videos on YouTube about boat shows it Germany (I think). And there was this one boat in 3 of the videos I saw. It looked like a sea ray and it was a jet boat. I have some images of it down below and was wondering if anyone knew if I am able to buy it or if it was home built. The boat looks and goes about the perfect speed and theres no unrealistic roostertale. Any help or advice?

Thanks, Ethan

No idea. It looks good though. I'd be interested to know how big it is and what is powering it.

Not fast enough for me though going by that first video!

It is,I believe a Graupner Jetstar...albeit the drives look more like KMB units

Just done a bit more searching and I'm now convinced it it a Graupner Jetstar....not been made for a few years.
If you search on Youtube you will see a few examples on there...one guy call his an 'Impulse"
Somewhere..hidden,I have a Graupner twin jet drive hull and pumps..new in the box...I can't recall which model it is now but I will find it post it on here.

Were. They are no longer available. Here's a page showing one for $118.69. Its looks a little different from the one in your video though:

The Wellcraft is like the ThunderTiger I pointed out. Both use props.

Apparently the Graupner is a twin-jet. I didn't notice until after I posted my suggestion...

As far as I recall it was the second model to feature the mini jet drive (19mm) from Grauper after their jet-sprint model.
However in this model it was a twin set-up.
Double trouble
