A longtime owner of high-performance powerboats of various shapes and sizes, Randy Kent said he originally ordered a new Nor-Tech Hi-Performance Boats 450 Sport Center Console powered by quad Mercury Racing Verado 400R outboard engines as a “personal boat.” But being in the powerboat business as a Nor-Tech dealer with his Midwest Boating Center operation in Osage Beach, Mo., he had no choice but to sell the stunning 45-footer to Cody Lovins when the Texas-based performance boat owner fell in love with it.

“It is his third Nor-Tech, and I think he’s put 60 hours on it 61 since the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout,” said Kent in early October. “That’s a lot of boating in what’s been about a month since he took delivery of the boat. He told me it’s the best boat he’s ever owned.
“The boat is so cool— there’s really nothing else I would consider in its class,” he continued. “It’s at a whole different level, from the hardtop to all the components such as the glass windshield with a wiper, auto-tinting glass in the cabin and a cold bar behind the helm station.
