Earlier today, Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats pulled the deck mold for its new center console dubbed the SX 39 off its plug and began laying up the deck for hull No. 1. The Bristol, R.I., custom high-performance V-bottom and catamaran builder currently has two completed hulls—with bulkheads and stringers installed—for the 39-foot outboard engine-powered model ready for deck installation.
With its deck mold now complete and the first deck being laid up, Outerlimits continues to move forward with its new SX 39 center console.
“Now, we can start building a deck,” said Dan Kleitz, the company’s sales manager. “We’re also working on the inner liner and the console is being laminated right now. We have a few more parts to be laid up as well.
“We’re making good progress,” he added.
The first SX 39 center console will be powered by quad Mercury Marine 400 Verado outboards. The second 39-footer will be equipped with a trio of the 400-hp engines.
Kleitz declined to offer a firm completion date for the SX 39.
“We’re pleased with where we are with the 39,” he said. “We’re also doing really well with our first 37-foot outboard catamaran—and it looks like our SV 29 OB will be done next week.”
Production of the SX 39 is one of two completely new-model projects in the works at Outerlimits.
