Though a formal announcement regarding ownership of Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats hasn’t been made but is expected in the next week or so, the Bristol, R.I., company has continued to build boats in the interim. To that end, Outerlimits recently put the final touches on an SL 52 sportboat powered by Mercury Racing 1350 engines.
This completed SL 52 is headed to an Outerlimits customer in Ohio.
The 52-footer should be delivered to its Ohio-based owner by the end of the month, according to Outerlimits general manager Dan Kleitz.
“It’s a loaded boat with air-conditioning, a generator, televisions, a big stereo system—you name it,” he said. “Cutting Edge in Missouri did an amazing job with the all-Alcantara interior, and Stephen Miles Design did its usual great work with the paintjob.”
On the smallest side of the Outerlimits V-bottom line, a new SV 29 powered by a Mercury Racing 565 engine is “90 percent complete,” according to Kleiz, who ordered and owns the boat with his father, Ken.
Dan Kleiz and his father, Ken, will run their new SV 29 sportboat at the upcoming 1,000 Islands Charity Poker Run.
“There are lots of custom touches on that one that weren’t on any of the other SV 29s,” said Kleitz. “I’m heading out for the Boyne Thunder Poker Run this week, but we’re bringing the new SV 29 to the 1,000 Islands Charity Poker Run the week after in New York.
“We are building boats and taking new orders,” he added. “This year is the 25th anniversary for Outerlimits. We’re moving ahead and looking forward to a great future.
