I noticed that too.

Oh well, I tried to illustrate my point the best I could, using the cloudy parameters we were given

I'll assume since there has not been an answer to this question XXX is the fastest Vee hull OL ever built, which is obvious, but the fastest pleasure boat other than XXX will remain a mystery....

The fastest Nortech V and Nortech Cat will be intertesting to see what is the fastest..

I have been asking this for years (and wish Powerboat would wrangle everyone up), a straight up head-to-head with all the manufacturers bringing a STOCK boat, full cabin on the V's and same hp engines (525s w/Bravos or 700 w/ NXTs or whatever, just all the same).

I want to see a shootout 38-42V:
39' Top Gun
38/42 Fountain
39 Outerlimits
38 Donzi Zr
39 Hustler
38-42 anything else

and the same thing with the cats: 38-42'

Powerboat has tried, trust me. But one thing you must understand, the invitations for round ups go out and the manufacturers bring what THEY want to bring, not what Powerboat requests.

The main problem is having all those company's (or even a third) that would have a brand new boat ready to test all at the same time with the same power. Virtuallly impossible. Second best thing to do is research each boat online (www.powerboatmag.com) and find each boat as it was tested with said power. Problem you'll run into again is that since manufacturers bring what THEY want to bring, they very, very rarely bring stock powered boats.

Just food for thought.

2011 Spectre SC32 - Twin 725 Ilmors/Indy Drives. Top speed on GPS - 146 mph.

I agree - Comparable boat Length and Same Power is the better apple to apple comparison.

The all new Frisini 42 Aronoli - Now in Production



The all new Spectre SCX43 - Now in Production

This would be really cool. It will make every brand even in power but come down to set up and bottom efficiency.

Laveycraft 39' EVO

And if you do a Merc 700/NXT round up, make sure the 700's are STOCK. No tuning up the ECM and raising the limmiter. That way you know what the boats trully do with Merc 700's.

I'm so pleased to see spectre back in the game and coming on strong! Always loved em. Probably cause a spectre was the first cat I'd ever been on.


By the way, is that big'ol 43 cat going to be a traditional cat or will it have a center pod?
