Looks like they're ready, if not, very close to begin retailing this monster outboard.

Very impressive.

There is more info over on THT. Top speed on a 29 Sea Hunter of 65. With twin Yami 300's...66. Impressive.

Not impressive is the $. Same retail as the 525. It will be interesting to hear what real $ is.

I saw a center console wih a blue 557 in biscayne bay when I was at the miami show, I'm guessing that's the 29 sea hunter they are using as the test boat?
