From a distance, the Lady Lisa, one of two 80-foot sport yachts built by Nor-Tech Hi-Performance Boats in Fort Myers, Fla., looks like another attractive, vibrant-red go-fast sportboat. But as the V-bottom owned by Red Reynolds gets closer to the viewer, it becomes obvious that the 80-footer is not “another” sportboat. The Lady Lisa is—in a word—massive.

Just ask Pete Boden, speedonthewater.com’s chief photographer. During the Florida Powerboat Club’s Tampa Bay Poker Run a couple of weekends ago, he shot the Lady Lisa in all its substantial splendor. But the Boden image that best captured the scale of the well-known boat, which is powered by a pair of 1,900-hp Caterpillar diesel engines and is a staple on the FPC poker run circuit, is the head-on photo above.

At first you see the boat. Then you see the head of the man in the center of the cockpit. And then you gain an appreciation for how significant this beautiful lady—named for the owner's daughter—really is.
