42 Lightning Remember this hull?
If you were on another boat, it’s the one that left your jaw on your chest as it roared past. The 42 Lightning is the most illustrious race boat in history, winning more world and national championships than any other V-bottom in world history.
It shattered the world speed record eight times with the fastest two-way average of 171.883 mph. It has done more than just win, it has totally dominated race courses over the past two decades.
It all started with Bob Nordskog’s Powerboat Special in the mid 1980s and continued under such stellar marques as Ohio Steel, Ocean Spray, Rio Roses, Pier 57 and Yachts International.
The 42 comes with a staggered engine set-up that brings the propellers close together, keeping the center of gravity low, down along the keel where it works best.
Own a proven part of history, the 42 Lightning is the best value that money can buy!
