Not the average transom you find on an Outerlimits.
Fans of high-performance powerboats will have to wait until the 2017 Miami International Boat Show in early February to get a complete look at Outerlimits’ new outboard engine-powered SL 41 sportboat. But thanks to the Bristol, R.I., custom boat company’s Dan Kleitz and painter extraordinaire Stephen Miles of Stephen Miles of Stephen Miles Design in Owensboro, Ky., we’re able to offer an early look at the 41-footer, which will be equipped with triple Mercury Racing Verado 400R outboards.
Stephen Miles is applying the final touches to the paintjob before the SL 41 OB heads back to Outerlimits.
Miles currently is finishing up the paint before the SL 41 SB is hauled back to Bristol for rigging and final interior installation. As noted in a previous story on speedonthewater.com, Kleitz and company are targeting a top speed of 100 mph for Outerlimits’ first outboard-powered sportboat. They’ll likely test the boat and have numbers before the Miami show. Like you, we’re looking forward to seeing the finished product. Until then, these images will have to do.
Regardless of its outboard power package, the SL 41 OB retains all of its classic Outerlimits lines (click image for full frame).
