The sleek little number shown here is the prototype XSR48 from XSMG Marine which will be heading to Monaco this month to give potential owners a look at the boat. The 48-foot boat is said to be the world's fastest diesel production boat. The boat will be put through a series of world record attempts to be conducted this year. The XSR48 has a Kevlar/carbon-fibre monocoque hull and twin diesel Isotta Fraschini engines and can hit speeds in excess of 100 mph. The XSR48 is expected to sell for around £1 million and there will only be 100 to be produced.
