By: Seth Heironimus, Journalist

People always talk about fast cars but no one talks about fast boats, so here are the 3 fastest boats in the world.

The Spirit of Australia

The spirit of Australia is the fastest boat ever created reaching a crazy top speed of 317.6 MPH. Just to put that into perspective the average top speed of Nasar and Formula 1 cars is only around 200 MPH. Its crazy to think a man-made vehicle can move that fast. The boat was designed created by Ken Warby in 1972 and his record was set in 1978.
