I think it has the potential to be a great product. Closed cooling,joystick technology for docking....the articles I read about this outboard were impressive.

From smart people come smart products. These guys have been there and done that, smart people.

hell even my yanmars started out life as toyota diesels used in landcruisers, obviously yanmar changed everything except the long block but they are based on automotive engines.

Where did Merc get its motors if not from the auto side?? The 5.7, 454, 8.2 motors were all in cars first right?

I'm pretty sure he was being facetious, and the 8.2 never came in a vehicle.

I think they might have something here, especially with the CC boom going on, seems to be a smart place for R&D.

I like the exhaust note, in fact the lack of an exhaust note is my primary reason for disliking outboards.
your about $ 32 k to high on the price for 4 xs300's
and about the same $ 30 k to high on the 525's .
just a thought ,
but tell you the truth $ 30k isn't that much money to these guy's that are buying this type of power , they probably don't even ask " how much "
