This awesomely powerful craft is the fastest motorboat of its kind in the world, and is on the market for £584,000 inc VAT.

Sand Dancer, previously owned by a Russian billionaire, is fitted with twin 1500hp turbo diesel engines and Arnesson Surface Drives. Cruising speed is 40 knots.

One of only two in existence, Sand Dancer was commissioned alongside her sister yacht in 2000 from the Guy Coach yard. She was fitted with the larger engines of the two craft.
