Chris,

I called Mercury Racing and spoke to a rep about these weights- they said these are the weights of the fully dressed engines less drives, etc..- even if the rep made a mistake and those weights are with the drives, the comparable Raylars are approx. 500lbs lighter each!!!!

Also- why would anyone care about weight of the motor without all the accessories? In the boat- the motor is fully dressed, so that's the only number that matters.

How about an "upgrade" deal I can't afford to say no to ?!? I could really benefit from the weight savings with twins...

The Raylar LSM550 is an awesome package as described.
The LSM550 with a Bravo HR drive and transome weighs right at 756lbs versus a 496HO at 1320lbs so I think the 500 lbs savings per motor is realistic and at about $32K with drive versus $40K plus for HP525 also has a nice price advantage for an all aluminum hand built motor with a 6,000 rpm conservative rev-limit!!
The Formula 292 in Germany has one being installed last week and I don't have performance figures yet, but it should work wonders on an already heavy boat that came with a stock 496HO iron monster!
We have two more of these babies being dynoed and broken in on the dyno'sw as we speak and they should be in their respective boats quite soon.
I think if the high performance boat market wasn't in such a down state right now we would probably have more orders than we could even handle!
We have just quoted two to Pantera for use in a new 28footer and I think there is another Sunsation customer ready to order a new 32 with the same Raylar LSM550 twin package. Both boats should be rocket ships with this power to weight ratios and the miserly fuel consumption at cruise will alsobe a big benefit with todays fuel costs.
Raylar knows that as more of these all aluminum beauties reach the market the future will speak for itself.
Just Remember that Dynamite comes in small packages!!

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar

Even comparing the weight savings to the 6.2 liter small block with heavy exhaust manifolds is impressive. Fully dressed 6.2 MPI with Bravo One lists at 993 lbs. Per Ray, the LSM550 with Bravo is 756 lbs. That is a weight reduction of 474 lbs off the back end when you are talking twins!!

Ray, Let's put a pair of LSM550's in my AT and see what it can do?? Finance me at a reduced "Promo-special price" and I'll be the east coast spokesperson for Raylar...with demos and test-rides; fresh water and coastal...whatever you need!
Come On Ray; Lets fire it up........

Wish my 28 was a demo boat for that package. Might even appeal to bigger boats since it weighs so much............and its rated for speeds over 80mph

What is the estimated time to rebuild on these engines? Estimated cost to rebuild?

.....and its rated for speeds over 80mph

Is that a dig on AT 28?

This is a very strong , lightweight hull.....I just think no one has ever gone much over 80 in one.

I don't think there are real concerns with the AT 28 hull until triple digits; but it would take so much power to get there it's not really an issue....now mid 80's, that's a possibility.



Nice Boat!!
