Three Stars - Ultra Low Emission

icon_ultra_low_emission.gif
The Three Star label means an outboard motor; that meet CARB's 2008 exhaust emission standards, or 65% fewer emissions than One Star (Low Emission) engines. While we won't be seeing any stars on traditional carbureted two-strokes, the state-of-the-art, Direct-Injected two strokes (Evinrude's Ficht, Mercury's OptiMax, Yamaha's HPDI and Nissan's TLDI) are all star nominees. So is the current crop of four-strokes, which are proliferating like paparazzi at a star-studded event.

Nor-Tech Sport 3900 Hull No. 100 Tops 100 MPH

Quote:
Nor-Tech Sport 3900 Hull No. 100 Tops 100 MPH

Wanting something that would make a big splash at this week’s Miami International Boat Show, the people at Nor-Tech and Double R Performance, the performance boat-builder’s well-known dealer in Ontario, Canada, set out to produce the first outboard engine-powered center console to break the 100-mph barrier. And with a new Sport 3900—hull No. 100 since the model was introduced in 2010—powered by quad Mercury Racing Verado 400R outboards on jack plates, they did exactly that during their final run that saw the boat top out at a GPS-recorded 101 mph last Friday.

Nor-Tech principal Trond Schou and Raymond Roberts, who co-owns the full service Double R dealership with his brother, Peter, were on board the 39-footer, which was fully equipped with a full T-top, a stereo system, an additional row of bolsters and a sliding cooler/seat and a host of other amenities.

“It was not a ‘flash’ of 100 mph,” said Roberts. “It was a long pull with the GPS reading 100, 99, 101, 100 and so on. It hung there throughout the run. With five people on board, we got 98 mph in the run before that so we we’re pretty sure we’d get it."

“The neatest part about the boat is I could take any 39 they ever built and duplicate this performance—this is a factory production hull, not a ‘speed run’ boat," he continued. "There’s nothing 'lightened up' about it. The engines are right out of the crates. It is completely itemized with everything the customer wanted. There’s nothing special about it other than a great hull and some really good setup work. It’s something we could reproduce for any client without having to give up the luxury the boat is known for.”

Terry Sobo, Nor-Tech’s director of sales and marketing, agreed. “We knew the hull could do it,” he said. “We had a 39-foot Monte Carlo with Mercury Racing 700s in that ran 104 mph, and it’s the same hull.”

Both Sobo, who was onboard during the 98-mph run, and Roberts said they felt protected from the high-speed onrushing breeze behind the console. “There was no wind at all behind that big windshield,” said Roberts.

Added Sobo, "We were completely comfortable the whole time."

i like your powerquest too. Wouldn't mind something like that at all. Jeep would tow it when needed and docking/ownership would be very cheap on the chain.

10K Tough pill to swallow but I've seen older Sea Rays that can fit that bill.

I love the PQ. I just wish it had a bigger motor.

even with the big block, thats not going to be a fast boat though. Unless you're towing people, its not a huge difference IMO.

it'd at least plane out quicker, be faster, and probably get better economy than what panda's experiencing currently
