Default nortech

I appreicate the posts on my 42-45 boat question. I now am looking for some feedback on nortech's 43 vs Outerlimits 42. I would look at a new nortech
vs a 2 yr old outerlimits.

They are both at the top of the heap in terms of both quality and performance. They are similar and yet two different animals (that's real definitive, huh). It really comes down to personal choice. You can't go wrong with either one. So, try a few test rides and go through the boats and one will probably fit your needs/wants/personality better than the other.

Diesel, both good boats, like Miller says, #1 and or #2 in many eyes. It depends what you want, the Nor-Tech is almost 44' long, a 9' beam with flowing europeen lines. The ride and handling for such a large boat is spectacular. We do quite a bit of overnighting and the 6' plus headroom is a great plus. Any thing you can come up with they will oblige. I am presently having a 43 built, and all I can say it has been a pleasant as well as professional experience, No B.S. my boat will be finished in approx. 5 weeks and they are on target for delivery like stated. Give Terry Sobo a call, he will get you on a test ride, I went in optomistic, was planning on buying something else, was totally shocked, and ordered one 3 weeks later, you won't be dissappointed, Good luck, Jeff Jassby 228-216-0900

What's with the "wood" comment? The only place we use it structurally is the transom and engine mount stringers. Everything else is foam core or solid glass.
Just curious about the myth.

Sorry if it offended you. I thought that I read or heard somewhere that you use wood in your construction of the boat and was curious on the opinions on that.

Both Quality boats in my eyes, Check the factories out for cleanliness, but you need to go for a ride, definatly compare price, as well as resale, then make your desicion, it doesnt get any better for custom out there. Jeff.

It depends how important performance is, the outerlimits will be faster with the same horsepower. And I agree you should tour both facilities and see first hand how the boats are constructed.

Why? I don't think there is anything on the Outer Limits Vee hull that makes it faster than the Nortech. The "speed secret" that OL seems to use best is to put about 3000-5000 Sterling Horsepower in the engine compartment at a cost of about $200,000...... plus $100,000/year in maintenance.
