My guess? Less than the merc turbo motors but more than the sterling 1550s. Hope that helps...

And congrats to Sterling. Not just on the 1700s but with Sterling Engineering as well. Its a tough market with OEMs right now and great to see an upstart doing well.

I heard that Sterling has the Torque Marine 860ci V12 blocks. Is that what these are? If not, can anyone confirm Sterling has those blocks and if not does anyone know who does?

The 1700 is based off a 557-cubic-inch block. For a little more information, check out my earlier stories on it, "Sterling 1700 Coming" (http://boatermouth.com/matt-trulio/2...-engine-coming) and "Sterling 1700: Ready for Christmas Time" (http://boatermouth.com/matt-trulio/2...christmas-time).

Final pricing has not been established, but Sterlng's Mike D'Anniballe said (in the first article on it) that the engine will be "way cheaper" than Mercury Racing's 1350. Given that the 1350 with an M8 drive lists for $203,000, that gives Sterling a good bit of pricing latitude. However, it's also worth noting that the Mercury product is in the field and the Sterling product is still in its final stages of development.

Sterling does, as I understand, have the Torque V-12 blocks but has not done any development with them.
