The new Nortechs are virtually silent. Probably something everyone will have to get used to in the future.

BBC or not, I still love the sound of my Dads 115hp merc 2stroke off the back of his 16' Bayliner wound out.

I have engines on the back on my boat and you can't even hear them idle. At speed you can hardly hear them...WOW is it nice for a change!
