Outerlimits Super Leggera SL52
This gorgeous boat from Outerlimits is the flagship model in the powerboat manufacturer’s Super Leggera (superlight) range. Its prodigious performance comes from twin 1,350bhp Mercury engines, which make for a top speed of over 220km/h. This powerboat even has a luxurious leather interior containing all the creature comforts of home, such as flat-screen television and DVD player, a top-of-the-range sound system and air conditioning.
Laveycraft 39’ Evo
Another fire-breathing powerboat in this line-up is the top-of-the-range vessel from Laveycraft. It can be specified with twin inboard engines from either Mercury or Ilmor each producing some 700 to 800bhp. The Evo features wraparound cockpit glass just like a competition powerboat, indicative of how serious it is. However, despite being able to reach ridiculous speeds, there is a full-functional cockpit and cabin to avail yourself of.
Eliminator 36’ Daytona
The only twin-hulled powerboat on our list comes in convertible and full hard-top guises, with a wraparound cockpit model coming to market soon. On a record-breaking run at the time of its launch, an example of this powerboat powered by twin 1,200bhp inboard engines managed to crack 270km/h, which is staggering for any boat of any kind. This bare-bones speed machine does have an interior, but it’s just so four people can sit down and hold on for dear life!
Donzi 43’ ZR
Leave it to the Italians to produce something outrageous – and outrageously fast. Should you choose, you can specify this powerboat with twin 1,350bhp Mercruiser dry-sump engines if the other engine specifications just won’t do. In addition to crossing waterways at light speed, you can take a shower or get your favourite drink out of the refrigerator in the cabin – even take a shower should you see fit! There is also ample seating for four people should you wish to get out of the sun.
Cigarette Racing 50’ Vision GT
Cigarette Racing is a world-championship-winning powerboat team who, luckily for us Regular Joes, decided to start building powerboats for private use. The latest 50-foot offering was developed in conjunction with Mercedes high performance arm AMG. As with other powerboats on this list, twin 1,350bhp Mercury Racing engines provide the oomph, which result in a top speed estimated to be over 230km/h.
