Frisini Motorsports is unveiling its newest model - the SCX 43 - later this week at the 2012 Desert Storm Poker Run in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., where it's being delivered to its owner, Gabriele Jasper of New Jersey.

The custom-built catamaran — Frisini’s largest model at 42 feet, 8 inches, with an 11-foot, 8-inch beam — will be on display at the event’s open this week.

“We are very proud of our latest offering in the SCX 43 — performance and handling are exactly as we predicted — and the owner is thrilled, which is most important to me,” Frisini Motorsports president Tony Frisina said in a statement. “We’ve engineered much of this boat to make it stand out from the rest and offer a different style of boating — one that combines the finest aspects of performance and pleasure.”

The Frisini SCX 43, dubbed Pain Killer, is powered by a pair of Mercury Racing 1350 QC4v engines and M8 drives. With concept, design and styling by Grafik EFX owner Chris Dilling, with input from Frisina, the SCX 43 features sleek lines, aggressive styling and a substantial cockpit.

Frisini Motorsports acquired Sonic Boats and Spectre Powerboats in 2010 and has spent the last two years updating popular models and building new ones for each brand.
