Default Outerlimits Wins Powerboat Magazine Outstanding Offshore V-bottom Custom Award

Outerlimits Powerboats’ 46’ LTD took Powerboat Magazine’s 2007 Outstanding Offshore
V-Bottom Performance - Custom Award. The prestigious award was presented at the annual banquet in Sarasota, Florida and was accepted by Outerlimits owner and president, Mike Fiore. “It is very gratifying to have our company recognized for the innovation that we constantly work to bring to the performance boat market,” said Fiore, “It is also great to share this with my whole family here because they are such a big part of what we do.”

The 46 LTD was created in 2006 to provide a step-up from the 42’ Legacy and included a variety of new hull design features including a five-step ventilated bottom. It also features a Multiplex Power Management system, providing easy touch-screen technology to control the boat’s electrical equipment and functions. As in all Outerlimits’ boats, the 46 LTD features carbon fiber, post-cured epoxy, creating a lightweight, strong hull that is complimented by a luxurious cabin and finishes.

The award-winning model featured Mercury Racing SCi 1075 engines, Herring 5-blade propellers (18 x 34.5) and achieved a top speed of 124.5 mph at 6100 RPM. Of particular notice to Powerboat’s test team was the acceleration to 89 mph in 20 seconds, then 40-60 mph in 5.4 seconds. “Our team thought it was particularly impressive that a 6-ton boat can get to that range of speed in those times,” said Gregg Mansfield

Fiore started Outerlimits Powerboats in 1993 to create a totally new concept of top-quality, custom-built boats to cater to the extremely discerning customer. Fourteen years later, the company has amassed six awards, five consecutive, for product excellence from Powerboat Magazine including those for Boat of the Year in 2003, Offshore V-Bottom of the Year - Custom, in 2004 and 2006, Outstanding Workmanship in 2005 and another award for Outstanding Performance in 1997.

Powerboat’s annual awards have become a 30-year tradition in the industry where recognition from the magazine’s respected team of boat reviewers garners respect from colleagues.
“This [Outstanding Offshore Vee Bottom Performance] is one of the toughest categories to judge—the quality is so good and it gets tougher each year,” said Gregg Mansfield, Editor, “We believe our award’s value is that it trickles down to the consumers—that’s the real benefit.”
