Default New 43' Eliminator Eagle XP

We're getting some quality seat time with the new 43' Eliminators. Latest runs include the SCOPE Poker Run out of Long Beach and some Photo Shoot runs at Lake Havasu this week.





The Orange/Red 43' ran 106.7 on Merc 700s with NXT drives.

The Harrah Red/Black/Grey 43' ran 127.8 Monday afternoon on Lake Havasu. Power comes from Merc 1075s with #6 drives and 16.5" x 35p 5 blade Cleavers.

We will have the Orange/Red at the Ft Lauderdale show Oct 25th - Oct 29th.

I'll tell you this much....

A) I'm a big fan of Larry Smith hulls
B) I was a little dissapointed when I saw the original pics of the Orange/Red one (first one popped for Eliminator)
C) I saw it in person at the SCOPE poker run and it is absolutely an AWESOME boat. In person the colors do it justice. And those little NXT drives in the staggard formation are just bad azz.

I just hope Eliminator doesn't decide to put that goofy canopied deck on it like they did with the 38. That boat has perfect lines the way it sits right there.

Impressive #'s by the way. It's a big boat.

Where's the pics of the cabin/cockpit?

I am not impressed with the paint scheme as I have seen on this post and another picture I saw before. It makes the boat look cheap although we know it's not.

At 127mph how could you not want canopies-(what's Tank know...)

very nice all the way around - the gel is awsome !
The 43 was/is always an awesome runing hull- now with a modern touch of Eliminator updates it hard to beat

Not sure...depends on the total package/configuration.
The one w/700s at SCOPE was $432k.

Call Bob or Jake at the shop: 800.306.3343

I know those half azz canopies on the Eliminator 38 vee bottomlook like dog sh!t! And I would hope they wouldn't take away from the clean lines of this boat with them.

Dont get all butt hurt because your last two boats had canopies. Both of those boats look good.

That is exactly what I thought until I saw it in person. It really looks nice when you're next to it.

Those boats would be a nice east coast boat if they had just a little more free board and cabin height.Looks like they did a great job!
