Default Merc Verado 350

Nice price tag of $29,000 for that bad boy.
Would like to here some thoughts that anyone has on this
new engine Merc announced at show todat. the V350
A few other details are leaking out from the boatbuilders and such. Some details:

1. it's a new engine and not just a software dialup of the 300. It has new heads, new supercharger and other internal parts changes....no change in boost pressure.
2. It is the same displacement as all other 6 cyl verados.
3. It will burn 91 mandatory and carry the same warr as the XS 300 (2 yr).
4. some changes to the gearcase - I assume more strength
5. and it is WILD looking....look for pics here on the start of the show with another surprise that will blow you away.
6. about the same weight as any othe 6 cyl verado (635)
ne.

So I guess this is the boat that showed up for the big Mercury Fountain challenge? Does anyone know what it ran with those motors? 82-85? I think the quad 250 boats did 84 with an extra motor dragging.

I bet you there is already a quad 350 boat running around right now. Imagine the price of that boat, I am thinking a quad 350 deep impact or cigarette topfish. Half milllion dollar center consoles here we come.

Marylandmark how does a 30cc with twin 350V sound?
Should be a 82mph boat.

It is under the Mercury Racing website and has the same warranty has your xs do.
