I know a guy who owns a 43NT. He originally built the boat with triple Ilmores and bravos. The boat went back to NT and was converted to a triple 700 and NXT boat. The boat runs around 111mph. Outerlimits has built a 46 with triple 700's that ran 120mph. My buddy has a set that he runs the sh*t out of in a 42X Cigarette. He's had a few issues but most of the hours are at 5000+rpm! The motors have held up really well. I wouldnt hesitate to buy a pair!

Yes triple 700 51's have been built and they run 108-110. LCM doesnt have one. It is owned by someone overseas I believe.

These are the ones I was refering to, the red one was sold and they still have the blue one listed.

Blue..

Red

What I never understood was/is that at the time these showed up, there were several used 51's on the market. Plus with a triple 51' custom boat, custom would be the key word. Somebody (definitly not me) in that market would order exactly what they wanted, how they wanted it. Not an off the shelf version. Especially when there were several low hour used deals to be had for less, if someone wanted it 'right now' and not personalized.... I cant help but think someone took a bath on the blue one, it may be new, but its been sitting a long time, long enough that 52 has basically replaced the model.

But then again I do tend to think too much.
