What a great picture!

What kind of boat is the Batboat?

Year? Make? Model?

Thanks!

This Batboat is in Indianapolis, Indiana, at the Superhero Museum.  Unfortunately, I just got word today that the museum is closed.  I hope it is a temporary closing, as I never made it to the museum to check things out.  Sad

There is another at the Volo museum and I have one.

Here is video of George Barris with the Volo batboat.  Click on the "Batcycle Batboat" video in the lower right corner.

Neither mine or that one is 100% accurate but are still cool.

I believe the one from the museum, while not 100% accurate, used the correct Glastron model of boat giving it the correct size.

Great replica!
That one should definitely be on the convention circuit, boat shows, etc!
Best I've seen yet!

I am not sure if it is the correct one or not.

The boat I have is a Glastron V-145 Fireflight and is 14 foot long.  The original is 17' 4" long.
