With the boating season in the Toronto, Canada, area just around the corner, Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats’ north-of-the-border clients Mark and Karen Tindale should be receiving their new SL 44 V-bottom just in time to make the most of their time on the water this year. According to Dan Kleitz, the Bristol, R.I., custom boat company’s production manager, the 44-footer is back at the plant with a fresh paint job from Stephen Miles Design and ready for the installation of its interior and engines.

“All the pieces to the puzzle are here—we just have to finish putting it together,” said Kleitz, who estimated that the boat will be finished in the next two weeks. “The interior is completely done. We just have to put it in the boat. Final assembly and rigging will happen at the same time. We got the boat back from the painter in three weeks. Our goal is to be finished three weeks after paint, and we’re on schedule for that.”
Once out of the factory, the new stand-up cockpit V-bottom will head to the water for testing and dial-in before it is delivered to its Canadian owners. Kleitz said he expects the testing to go smoothly and quickly. Delivery will happen immediately thereafter.
“It’s a 44 with 700s so we pretty much know what to do with it,” he said. “We’ve built a handful of those.”
