From the marketing material:

Designed by Rusty Biesemeyer

Competition Boating's most famous designer, Rusty Biesemeyer, has put together another champion, Riviera's 18' flat bottom racer, a rooster-tailing, fire breathing, all-out thoroughbred. It's the ultimate in sport boats - low, sleek, and fast! Run it as a K-boat fueler, or a red-hot river ski racer. Anyway you go, it's a monster machine!

Manufacturer: 

Glen-L Thunderbolt 17'

The THUNDERBOLT, a rapid rig intended for one purpose, "GO". And brother with the right power plant it will do just that in capital letters. You can use her for dragging, ski towing, or just plain old getting out and going FAST.
