A Classic Thoroughbred
Loosely styled after Impshi, George Crouch’s original 1920’s Gold Cup racer, Impshi II is redesigned with the power of a modern racing engine and driveline. Her contemporary double-stepped V-bottom, hybrid semi-surfacing drive and robust hydraulic steering system are carefully blended into the classic styling of the era. Meticulous craftsmanship, a Van Dam trademark, is evident throughout the boat. Honduran mahogany planking, cut from a single log for color and grain uniformity, is book-matched so each side of the boat is a mirror of the other – also classic Van Dam.
Viewed from any angle, Impshi II is lean, powerful and elegant. Turn the key, and the heady sound of 750 supercharged horsepower rumble to life, resulting in eye-watering acceleration and 80+ mph performance. Even with her thoroughbred design, she idles steadily and behaves well in tight quarters. A custom built water jet bow thruster provides docking ease at the push of a button. Impshi II – wood and muscle – the beauty of yesterday, the technology of today!
