First time poster. OL40SVX seams to be a lot of second guessers on the OL brand here and there....but I will never forget the first time I saw an OL in person I believe it was a 43 closed canopy here at the dock on Hartwell lake in Anderson SC. I think it is owned by a local guy named Buck Fulp not sure I'm spelling his name correctly but I had the chance to talk with him and watch him start those 1075s. All I can say is VERY IMPRESSIVE boat. I can't wait to see this open bow you speek of.

Real bad idea....Nordic did this to their 35 Flame sold two then sales on the closed bow version completely disappeared and value cratered. Boat looked downright silly and was never taken serious again. Cobalt, Rinker, Sea Ray and Four Winns all build nice bow riders, leave it to them.

OL builds an awesome performance boat, stay with what ya know.

My 2 cents

Are you saying OL should have turned the order down? The way I see it if somone want to order a custom $1,000,000+ boat they could have it any way they want...

The boat is for a repeat Outerlimits customer and it is what he wanted. Every Outerlimits is custom built for their owner.

I'll bet you a beer..it will just break 90mph

a 19500-20,000k pound 52' long NT runs 86.4mph with the 480 Yanmar/Arneson drives..and the OL will be lighter. I still like the Arnesons over the nxt's..all day long.

Most likely, a one off. You have to admitt, the owner has the guts to build what he wants and I commend him for that.

Fountain built a 47 Lightning bowrider in 98. I believe there was only one built.

You are correct Mark. It was owned by a guy in CT for many years and called Sandblaster. He also had a 38 Eliminator bow rider. Those pics are from Ocean Performance.

A 50V like Bob's runs 86? I thought it was a 76 mph package
