That same year she also won the Columbus Atlantic Trophy for the fastest round-trip Atlantic crossing. Her gas turbines carry her 222’ (67m) frame with 52,000 horsepower. When she was launched, she was the largest aluminum boat on the water with the biggest waterjets designed and manufactured at the time. DLBA is proud to have spearheaded her naval architecture.
