What a Boat!!

No other boat has had the illustrious heritage of the 42 Lightning. This is the hull that blitzed the race courses of the world, winning more world and national champions than any other V-bottom in history. It shattered the V-bottom world speed record eight times with the fastest two way average of 171.883 mph and a one way pass of 177.35 mph. Touted as the finest offshore boat ever built because it has dominated racecourses over the past two decades. It all started with Bob Nordskog's Powerboat Special in the mid 1980's and has since then raced under such notable names as Ohio Steel, Ocean Spray, Rio Roses, Pier 57, and Yachts International to name a few. The 42 is equipped with a staggered engine set-up that brings the propellers close together, keeping the center of gravity down low along the keel where it works best. Try twin 700 Mercurys with NXT1 gimbals and #6 uppers and lowers to reach speeds approaching 105 MPH.
