According to long-time poker runners Brian and Janet Lundy, there are good days on the water and then there are “Nor-Tech days on the water.” For the Lundy’s, the recent PRA 1000 Islands Poker Run provided just one of those days while running their Nor-Tech 40’ catamaran “Bad Company” they purchased earlier this season from Double R Performance. Needless to say, the Lundy’s couldn’t have been happier with their choice with its impressive top speed and versatility.
Dividing their time boating between Cape Coral, Florida, and Ontario, Canada, the Lundy’s 40’ is just one of a handful of Nor-Techs they have owned with a few DCB cats thrown into the mix, including an M35 and Mach F26. It goes without saying that the Lundys’ appreciate their catamarans and show no signs of slowing down.
“An opportunity came along at Double R Performance to purchase the 40’ and I simply said ‘sign me up,’” said Brian. “One of the reasons why we like Nor-Tech is because of the local support we have through Double R Performance. Plus, and as we also run out of the Cape Coral/Fort Myers area, Nor-Tech is readily nearby for service.”
Powered by twin 1100 hp Mercury Racing engines with Number Six drives, Brian explained the 40’ can hit speeds of up to 150 mph while still providing all the comfort and convenience he and his family require.
“We have a 150 mph boat that still offers two queen beds, a bench, a microwave, – there’s not a lot of other cat guys out there offering all this,” says Brian. “In Florida we enjoy all the boating destinations. We’ll have five people on board. With everyone and luggage, there’s still lots of room. Plus it’s an all-around, cool looking cat.”
