Mike Fiore, founder and president of Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats is a discerning boater who created the company for those who share his passion for the ultimate in performance. When he founded Outerlimits in 1993, his plans went beyond the norm. Fiore wanted to go far beyond what others in the industry were doing; he wanted to set a new standard. He knew customers wanted more; they wanted the best and wanted it their way and his concept of custom powerboat building provides that.
Fiore grew up working in the performance boat business, alongside his father, Paul, and mother, Joyce. From his parents he inherited the knowledge and passion to build performance powerboats. Fifteen years later, the Fiore family still works together toward a shared goal–building the finest custom powerboats available.
Outerlimits has become more than a boat–it is a lifestyle. Owners have a camaraderie that comes from sharing the pleasure of boating at events with friends and family. They proudly display their personal works of art, both on the water and at the docks, a statement of achievement and enjoyment. This pride of ownership stems from the company culture that creates America’s most admired high performance boat. When you arrive in an Outerlimits, you ‘have arrived’.

Construction & Design
Pride in craftsmanship flows throughout Outerlimits, as the factory team–laminators, upholsterers, painters and riggers, all stake their reputations on their workmanship, bringing the brand to customers who recognize and want only the best.
Outerlimits has always been recognized as building the strongest, most durable, rough water boat on the market. Using epoxy and carbon fiber makes the boats stronger and lighter, creating greater performance with less horsepower.
Fiore’s team of savvy craftsmen understand the intricacies of impregnating carbon fiber fabric with the precise amount of epoxy resin required. Each strip of the treated fabric is applied to meticulously prepared molds and each layer of carbon and core is vacuum bagged to eliminate air and excess resin that could weaken or blister the lightweight epoxy construction. Each part then moves on to the computer-controlled oven for curing. This 2-day heating and cooling process facilitates the maximum strength of the epoxy and protects the boat from adverse reaction to the elements and hot sun. The boat is then blueprinted to ensure it meets the exact design specifications of each model, creating uniformly flawless hulls. The deck and hull are then laminated together to ensure rattle-free, permanent construction.
Rigging and engine installation are completed by technicians and mechanics, specially trained in high performance boating. While enjoying a strong partnership with Mercury Racing, a wide range of high-performance power packages are available on request, each customized to properly complement the customer’s boating style and use. Design of the cockpit and selection of the proper instrumentation is completed by the Outerlimits team incorporating the preferences of the customer.
