The first official Batboat made its debut in April 1946 (in Detective Comics #110) however the first appearance of the Batboat was in the 1966 film Batman and subsequently in the TV series after. Mel Whitley and Robert Hammond designed the Batboat from a Glastron V-174. Although the boat was powered by a Merc Cruiser L-6 stern drive and Attwood Corporation manufactured the hardware, a water squirter and a jet nozzle were added to make the Batboat look like it was nuclear-powered. It took 31 days to build the original batboat and additionally a replica was built. After the cancellation of the show , Glastron used the 2 batboats for promotions on tour. This particular BatBoat was one of the 2 sold by Glastron.
