Team Soundings found the Life Proof GS-50 at the Newport International Boat Show.

Powered by triple 600-hp Mercurys and capable of 60 mph, she was built for an east coast surfer who likes to anchor outside the break and jump in with his surfboard.

Soundings Art Director Briana Smith shows how big those triple 600-hp Mercurys on the stern of the Life Proof GS-50 really are.
