Peter McKee’s $60,000 speedboat-turned-pool table
It’s never an easy job to reform something that has remained almost the same for a long time. But then, there are a few who think out of the box and create something unique, and the same goes for the boat-turned-pool table by Peter McKee, owner of Master Billiards, North Parramatta. Made for a special client on request, Peter McKee fixed a seven-pocket table onto a 21-foot speedboat. This vessel-turned-pool table costs a cool $60,000. The unusual pool table has a ball return system also. Once a ball enters a pocket, it goes along a pipe before moving out at the rear of the table.
The side of the boat hull bears the words Brian, B-Dog and The B. The boat pool table pays a tribute to 28-year-old Queensland water-skier Brian Rix, who was killed in a boating accident on the Fitzroy River in 1999.
