Questions?? Power vs. run time

I'm new to RC Boating, I am looking for a boat with a balance between fast and a run time longer than 10 mins on a set of batteries, is this even possible with battery type boats? thanks!

Eeeek......10min is along time. I build and race FE boats. Typical run time for heat racing is around 2min. Offshore runs for around 4-5min.

You can recharge batteries, boats aren't about run time. Make it FAST!

Thanks for all the replies, yea i want a fast blast from time to time, not wide open the whole time. I've looked at the spartan but a local hobby store owner had nothing positive to say about Traxxas boats. Even if he was blowing hot air, i can't see myself going in and thinking he would "not" frown on me getting one. What about the pro-boat Sonicwake 36" are they made well? are they as good or better than the spartan? what about run time??? thanks again!!!!!
