On its way north of the border today with its Canadian owner, an Outerlimits SL 52 reportedly topped 150 mph in testing last week. The 52-foot-long stepped hull V-bottom is the first Outerlimits model to be powered by twin Mercury Racing 1650 Race engines.
“With the right props it may have a few more miles per hour in it,” said Dan Kleitz of the Bristol, R.I., custom V-bottom and catamaran company.
While rigging and setup of the 52-footer took longer than anticipated, everyone at Outerlimits reportedly is pleased with the results. “It’s a beast,” said “Kleitz. “It goes from 70 to 120 mph in matter of seconds.’
The 1650-powered SL 52 likely will participate in the upcoming Poker Runs America 1,000 Islands Poker Run August 9-11, as well as the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout August 16-25.
