I think both the Nor-Tech and the Outerlimits are comparable. The OT does have a 9.2 foot beam and 6'+ of headroom. They weigh a similar amount. As for the speeds, I don't know what the NTs run but I'd suspect, like T2x said, that with equal power they probably run pretty close to each other. Either way, I stand by my original post, they are each at the top of the performance boat pyramid in terms of style, performance, status and quality. You cannot go wrong with either one.
Ignore all the bs chest thumping and visit the factories. Go for some rides and you'll know which one is RIGHT FOR YOU and rest assured that the next time this conversation takes place, they'll be using YOUR boat as the example upon which someone will stake his or her testorerone claims.
