With power provided by a pair of 700 hp Mercury Racing HP700 SCi NXT sterndrives, we hit 74.2 mph at 5,400 rpm, an impressive number when you consider that the Revolver R42 has a maximum beam of 11 feet 7 inches (9 feet 3 inches at the waterline), weighs 15,786 pounds dry and has full stand-up headroom under the hardtop. The only other manufacturer that builds an enclosed offshore performance V-bottom is Outerlimits, but the comparison ends there. The Outerlimits SV 43 is strictly a sit-down boat made for going fast. It seats five, weighs 9,000 pounds and runs 115 mph on the same power as our test boat. It retails for $753,131. Nor-Tech’s 427 weighs 10,900 pounds and has a conventional stand-up-style offshore boat layout. It retails for $670,000 and runs 105 mph with the HP700 SCi NXTs.
