Michael Aronow, the son of the late high-performance boat-building legend Don Aronow, and Michael Fiore, the owner and founder of Outerlimits, are teaming up to offer a 43-foot-long Don Aronow Limited Edition model. The 43-footer, which is based on the Bristol, R.I. company’s popular SV43 V-bottom, will be offered in two commemorative color schemes designed by Grafik EFX. Each design will feature Aronow’s “No. 1” on the 43-footer’s deck and hull sides.
The project was inspired by the Outerlimits 43SV owned by Joe Cibellis that set a course record this year in the 271-mile Don Aronow Memorial Around Long Island Endurance Race.
“My immediate thought after the race was, ‘What would my father do?’” said Michael Aronow. “He would have built a prototype, entered it in the toughest ocean race around that was open to all manufactures, win the race and then immediately put the boat into production for the public.
“Outerlimits is at the forefront of the high-performance industry, and they proved it by setting a new record in the Around Long Island race,” he added.
“We are honored to be able to use the Aronow name and that Michael thinks so highly of our company,” said Fiore. “Coming from his family’s background in the industry, that’s quite an honor.”
Base power for the Don Aronow Limited Edition model will be twin Mercury Racing 525EFI engines.
