Hmmmm, I wonder if I could fit one on the back of my Whaler. That's a helluva motor. Any word on cost?

Looks like Mercury decided to fill the need left from when Volvo bought up 777 & then decided to stop making them & focus on alternate fuel sources.

I wonder how long it will be before the extensive list of small volume parts is no longer complete. How many do you expect will be sold in the first three years?


Have a great day of boating

Can't see myself ever owning that, but I love the concept, especially the swiveling bottom end and the two speed transmission.

I agree. I look at those and wonder how they keep the aft end of those afloat.

This is aimed at that market but customers can subtract one or two motors from the total and still have plenty of power and blade area in the water. I imagine there will be many lower and higher HP versions eventually, if it's a success.

If you look at all the yachting magazines, it has become evident that many boats in the 30-50' range have gone from inboards or pod drives to outboards, including many cruisers. Other than the additional storage, I personally don't think it would work for me. A twin engine center console in the 30-40' range is a whole different story.

Bunch of outboards on the back sure do clutter up the swim platform in a hurry. Not for me. If i was a salt water boater that might change things.

just to compare-- and Hot Rod magazine put one of these together and got 771 HP out of it--
It's all aluminum and, as ran on the dyno, weighs a whole 527 pounds...
Not that many people would put these in a boat (I sure as hell would!) but like the Merc's
this is NOT a massed produced motor- yet one can get 3 of them for less than ONE of the Mercs-
less $$ for parts to make them run, but even then the savings would likely pay for 3 DP drives--

My main point: $77k seems a bit out there. Not that outboards have ever been cheap wink

Wow, at $77K per motor if you hung 4 of them on the back and of a boat you just put 308 boat bucks on your transom. Dayam.
