The first Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats SC 37 catamaran—as in hull No. 1—we set up for photographer Pete Boden to capture in Key West, Fla., last month is a lot different than any other cat from the Bristol, R.I., custom powerboat company. Unlike the 46-foot, Mercury Racing stern-drive-engine-equipped Outerlimits cats created for Burton and Yvette Kirsten of Michigan and Washington’s Jason and Laurie Moe, the 37-footer is powered by Mercury Racing 450R outboard engines and is the first outboard-exclusive model from the builder.
Even in plain white with a few accents, the Outerlimits SC 37 catamaran is a knock-out. Photo by Pete Boden copyright Shoot 2 Thrill Pix.
And obviously, the open-cockpit SC 37 is a whole lot smaller than its canopied siblings.
Equally obvious? The SC 37 cat was simply white with a few accents, far from elaborate but nothing short of beautiful.
Still, we can’t wait to see one all dressed up. Kentucky-based paint wizard Stephen Miles of Stephen Miles Design handled the graphics for the Kirsten’s Jet and the Moe’s Hurry Up catamarans and he’ll be getting his hands on an SC 37 in early 2022. The famed graphics man can’t wait.
Just as we couldn’t wait to see the first SC 37 cat for ourselves. That the new model took longer than expected is old news, and we’ve been following the project since it was nothing more than a hush-hush idea. We were confident the finished product would be a beauty and we were weren’t wrong.
And as you can see from the image up top, the boat made it in time for the final photo shoot for our 2021 Speed On The Water Year In Review print edition, which goes to the printer this Friday.
