Image of the Week: What The Hull?

Since returning from the Super Boat International Offshore World Championships in Key West, Fla., last week we’ve been culling through hundreds of images for our upcoming digital and 2016 Year In Review print edition magazines. Of course, most of the photos capture offshore racing action, but we also have plenty from the Florida Powerboat Club’s Key West Poker Run fleet. It’s an embarrassment of riches from Pete Boden, our chief photographer, as well as contributing photographer (and stalwart speedonthewater.com supporter) Yvonne Aleman.

Whether he's testing his raceboat the day before Wednesday's first race of the Super Boat International Offshore World Championships in Key West, Fla., or running in the final Superboat-class race on Sunday afternoon, you can pretty much guarantee FB Marine Group owner Randy Sweers is having a good time on the throttles of his 40-foot MTI catamaran Sailor Jerry/Autonation, which is powered by twin 750-hp engines from Ilmor Marine.

Visitors to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show Nov. 3-6 will get a firsthand look at the first Mystic Powerboats M4200 luxury center console painted by Stephen Miles of Stephen Miles Design. Knowing that most of you probably won’t be attending the annual South Florida event—and, OK, we admit we’re a little jealous of those who will be—we’re giving you a sneak peek of the stunning 42-footer on the water with this gallery of images provided by Scott Sjogren of Mystic Powerboat Sales.

A few days after the Fort Lauderdale, the 42-footer will head to Key West, Fla., just in time for the Super Boat International Offshore World Championships Nov. 6-13. So folks going to Key West that week—and, OK, we admit we’re a little happy we’ll be there—will get a chance to see it firsthand.
