Inside Speed On The Water Magazine: Outerlimits SV 43 Profile

Dustin Whipple of Whipple Superchargers in Fresno, Calif., had a simple
 plan when he ordered a custom go-fast boat from his brother-in- law Mike Fiore, the owner and founder of Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats, two years ago. He wanted to build “something fun.” Now, we all have our versions of fun and as anyone who knows him can attest, Whipple takes his fun more seriously than most. So it was a safe bet that—once completed—his SV 43 V-bottom would be nothing short of outrageous and yes, a whole lot of fun

I’m kind of fond of fun, too, which is why three days before Christmas, I found myself riding on a remote lake outside Fresno with Whipple and Fiore in Whipple’s exquisite stepped-hull, epoxy- and carbon-fiber-built 43-footer. We didn’t go particularly fast while I was board, at least
if 130 mph isn’t particularly fast, which was fine with me.

Outerlimts/Whipple SV43: On Board And Up Close

 

Matt Trulio – Speed on the Water22 December 2013

When is a five-hour round-trip drive for an hour of boating worth the effort just three days before Christmas? Especially when the wrath of your family is guaranteed? In almost every case I can think of, the answer would be never.

In its third testing session today, Dustin Whipple’s Outerlimits SV43 topped 150 mph. Photo courtesy/copyright Robert Brown/Robert Brown Photography.

But today’s run with Mike Fiore and Dustin Whipple in Whipple’s Outerlimits SV43 V-bottom powered by a pair of 1,385/1,600 supercharged engines—the product of a collaboration between Whipple Industries and Teague Custom Marine—was absolutely worth it.

Under construction, so to speak, for almost two years, the sit-down 43-footer is a one-of-a-kind rocket. And the detail work on the boat is as over-the-top as that of any Outerlimits I’ve ever seen. Plus, I got to spend a little time with Fiore, the owner and founder of Outerlimits, and Whipple, both longtime friends.

Why the rush to take a boat ride just before Christmas? Because a complete feature on Whipple’s SV43 will run in the January/February issue of Speed on The Water digital magazine. Syncing schedules with Fiore ,Whipple and photographer Robert Brown is kind of like—to borrow from some of the talk of the day—mapping a new engine platform. It doesn’t necessarily happen easily or on the most convenient timetable, so when the planets align you seize the moment.

Mystic Powerboats in DeLand, Fla., has started tooling its first 40-foot catamaran, a project that is more than three years in the making. According to company owner and founder John Cosker, the catamaran will be available in an open-cockpit version called the C4000S, a high-performance canopied pleasure version called the C4000RS and a pure offshore racing version—called the C4000R—aimed at the growing Super Boat International Supercat class.

The new plugs for the tooling are being CNC-milled at Vectorworks Marine in Titusville Fla., and Mystic will build the molds in house. Production on the new C4000 series will begin March 2014. All sales will be factory direct for “more personalized service,” according to Cosker.

Like Don Onken’s 50-foot Mystic cat that debuted at the 2012 Lake of the Ozarks Shootout (read the story), Envy will have a longer running surface than a standard Mystic. “It’s the second boat with the 18-inches-longer running surface—Don Onken’s being the first,” said John Cosker, the founder and owner of the DeLand, Fla., high-performance boat company. “The boat is over 51 feet long now.”
