Slideshow of the Week: Nor-Tech’s New 450 Sport Presented by South Florida Performance Boats

Ask Bob Crow of South Florida Performance Boats in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., about the new Nor-Tech Hi-Performance Boats 450 Sport Center Console model, and he’ll explain why he believes it is one of the most versatile offerings he’s ever seen. Not only does the large 45-foot-long, 12-foot-wide model have the interest of performance boaters looking to get into a bigger center console or transition out of their go-fast V-bottom or cat, according to Crow, the boat is also gaining traction among customers who might normally be looking at an express cruise as well as yacht owners seeking an unparalleled tender.

Image of the Week: A Much Lower Altitude Mystic

When speedonthewater.com chief photographer Pete Boden of Shoot 2 Thrill Pix headed to New Smyrna Beach, Fla., to shoot the latest Mystic Powerboats M4200 luxury center console delivery, he came back with something unexpected—an image of the triple Mercury Marine Verado 350 outboard engine-powered 42-footer “catching air.” And that’s saying Boden has shot almost every Mystic M4200 produced in the last two years and has brought back nary an air shot.

Image of the Week: Perfect Pair

Boden captured the image of two Cigarette sportboats—a 38’ Top Gun and a 36’ Gladiator—idling alongside one another during the Florida Powerboat Club’s recent Tampa Bay Poker Run.

Image of the Week: Quite A Lady

From a distance, the Lady Lisa, one of two 80-foot sport yachts built by Nor-Tech Hi-Performance Boats in Fort Myers, Fla., looks like another attractive, vibrant-red go-fast sportboat. But as the V-bottom owned by Red Reynolds gets closer to the viewer, it becomes obvious that the 80-footer is not “another” sportboat. The Lady Lisa is—in a word—massive.
