Outerlimits has made its bones by building some of the fastest boats in the world. The builder’s SV-43 currently holds the world record for fastest V-bottom, with a speed of 180.47 miles per hour. But lately, Outerlimits has turned its attention to producing fishing boats as well, the first of which is the SX-39 Center Console, which has a similar hull to the speedy SV-43. That hull has a five-step FVS (Fiore Ventilated Steps) system that Outerlimits credits its speed and nimbleness with.
The hull was designed by Outerlimits’ in-house designer Mike Fiore. It’s epoxy resin-impregnated e-glass with carbon fiber reinforcements, and is built using a vacuum-bag process. The SX-39 comes in either triple or quad Mercury outboard iterations, with a max of 1,800 hp. That should be enough giddy up to get this boat out to the fish before everyone else.
But this boat isn’t just a rocket ship. She’s got plenty of amenities and equipment to keep everyone happy. That list includes a carbon-fiber T-top with a JL Audio sound system, a head, sink and v-berth in the console and a dive door. There’s also a cockpit wetbar and a Garmin GPSMAP 1242XSV Touch multifunction unit at the helm. As for fishing amenities the boat has plenty of rodholders, two drained in-sole fish boxes and a built-in cooler aft.
The Outerlimits SX-39 is a stylish, fast and fun-to-drive boat that should make a good fit for fishermen and sandbar enthusiasts alike.
