The 50 Catamaran is bred for the wild--water, spirit and colors! Built totally of carbon fiber, the cat is strong and stealthy, light enough to land softly, but tough enough for rough water. Powered with stock Mercury Racing 1200's the cat has seen speeds in excess of 160 mph. As with all Outerlimits Powerboats, the 50' Cat is highly technical in its construction; made entirely of carbon fiber and post cured epoxy with Nomex honeycomb bulkheads. The engine compartment is a clear carbon fiber "monocoque" unit. The clean engine installation gives the appearance of an engine in space - with all wiring and fluid supply lines being hidden. The seamless bilge is strong, clean and light. This installation is the same technique used in airplanes and race cars.
Available in both a stern drive and shaft drive, the Michael Peters designed bottom has been modified by Outerlimits improving on an already great design. Post-curing ensures the perfection and uniform finish of each Outerlimits Powerboat. The slow baking and cooling in a computerized oven assures that the full strength of the materials is realized and gives each boat the durable finish that stands up to all Mother Nature's wrath.
Offered in both an open or enclosed canopy, comfort is a key element. The cockpit is luxurious - built with fine leathers and suede including a hand stitched leather dash, carpeting, state-of-the-art instrumentation, computerized electronics and GPS chart plotter, making the Outerlimits Cat, not just a powerboat, but a species all of its own. Various power options are available, but Mercury Racing's 1200 engines, with the super-charged 557-cubic inch V-8 cylinder block, provide an ideal power package for this sleek, muscular cat.
