    Saw this on Facebook. Can tell if it’s the 47 or a new hull.

    No Carolina flare so I don’t think it’s the new CC

    Just seems like most the stuff Iv'e seen come out of there lately have been heavy orange. I'm not complaining, I love that tangerine orange pearl and what not. Beautiful color.

    They're different heights, which I found curious. Itll be interesting to see how it runs.

    Talking 2 different guys.
    Walt is talking about the guy with the 43 and deck.

    Randy own the company and most of his boats (usually first ones out of mold) have orange in them as well.

    You are thinking of Mike Smith. This is Randy's boat although it will likely be for sale as well. It's a bad ass rig!

    Nordic Boats of Lake Havasu, AZ, has announced two new models nearing completion: a 48-foot vee bottom and a 31-foot catamaran.

    General manager Thane Tiemer told Speedboat that the new 48’ Poker Run has been a year in the making, with the first three already sold—one of which is for company president Randy Davis. Tiemer said the boat will be powered by Mercury Racing 1100 engines with M6 drives.

    Tiemer said that Nordic Boats owner Randy Davis, along with two of his friends, wanted to own fully gel-coated vee bottoms in the 46 to 50 range. “We had our 39, which ran amazing,” Tiemer says. “So after I designed that one, I based the new 48’ off of that bottom. It’s got a full to-the-water bustle, the whole nine yards.” (Nordic’s 39 Poker Run features a pair of 700 SCis, yielding a top speed of 110 mph. IMCO Marine owns one of the Nordic 39s.)

    The first 48’ Poker Run out of the mold (pictured above) was originally earmarked as Davis’s personal boat. “But that might change because one of our customers is all over it,” Tiemer chuckles. He said the new model will feature 100% composite construction with carbon Kevlar, all gelcoat, with a cabin sporting cabinets, sink area and cupboards all coming out of a one-piece mold. “No seams and no joining, no nothing,” he says.

    The 48 will also feature T-top doors in the front of the deck. “So when you park on the beach, you press a button from outside of the boat and they’ll lift up,” Tiemer says. “Then you can pull out all your lawn chairs and stuff instead of carrying everything from the back of the boat. There’s easy access onto the deck from the dash. There’s hidden bimini top that’s all tucked away, a flushable head, and so much more. It’s fully loaded.”

    The 48’ models that are currently being built will also feature a “beach door” on the side of the boat, similar to the ones built into the Hallett 40-footers built by Nordic in recent years. “They’ll be electric, not the mechanical,” he says. “This boat will have a button you push, and the door will slide open.”

    Strange question for the Big Blue runners: What happens to that long bustle if you launch off of a big roller and come down bow high?

    Guess it depends on how well
    The boats built. Lol

    it’s the same shit as the top of a tunnel slapping. I’ve never heard of one breaking, thought you’d think you put enough pressure on that big piece hanging way out there it would break it right off.

    Outerlimits, MTI, Skater loves them some bustles and they race their shit. Never a problem


    I’m Not a fan of bustles myself.

    Think the Catalina Boat is 43 ft. They limit overall length. That’s why Mike Avila cut the nose off his fountain.

    I am far from expert, but I think its a "running surface" limit, hence fountains getting their noses cut off. If you look at the Nordic Catalina boat, there is a length of the ass end that that is not running surface and up higher which I understood was for this rule to be compliant, but the overall length being longer. Some more in the know will chime in I am sure. This thing is bad ass though.

    Mr. Avila made sure he was within the rules...so I am guessing it is a bow to stern limit.

    No boat shall exceed forty-three (43) feet in length. The boat is measured from the bow (farthest point forward) to the lowest part of the transom that the drives are mounted on. Notched transoms will not constitute the end of the measurement

    from the rule book

    Seems to be a VERY rare occurrence for as much as it is talked about... I do remember Johnny Tomlinson damaging the bustle of the Gasse 48 MTI in Key West standing it up in the bumps maybe 6 years ago, but that was a much thinner "race bustle " than the modern skater bustles, much like this Nordic. I personally wouldnt worry about it.

    Nice work again, do you have that photo handy of when you re gelled the Catalina race boat, the 47', there was a great photo showing the bustle off the back behind the transom, but higher than the running surface. My photo you can't tell as its in the water.

    it’s almost hard to believe but when you repair them they are as strong as the original. Fiberglass is fiberglass

    that’s my point. That looks like a foam core filler, not fiberglass. Maybe it’s just the angle of the photo.

    I think the foam is to establish the shape then the glass will be tied into existing structure. Wettted fiberglass needs support or a mold until cured
