Yes... it has been for sale forever.
Its one of my fav Midnights.
was just wondering if anyone knew it personally.

I was gonna post it, but you beat me to the punch.
If i had to chose btw this 37 or a 38cougar, it'd be a tough choice.

They just built one with quad 300s. I was talking to them last week about it. They said it did 78 mph. I am going to meet with them at the Ft. Lauderdale show next month. I heard that there is a new verado coming out in the 325-350 hp range. I was thinking quad 350 outboards and not burning oil would be nice.
BTW I love your midnight. You did a great job with the paint.

Thanks Driven1 , I was recently thinking that I should have painted it all black. Oh well maybe next time.

I am trying to locate a fourth opti. Originally came with quad 200's. Looks like I am going to have to get bracket extended on the outer corners to make the fourth fit.

Put in a good word for me with the boys at Midnight, they need a Mid Atlantic rep If you see any Midnight's old or new get some picts and post them.




Thanks again, Tony

Very cool! About time as well!

I just got a PM from TS at NT; probably to tell me about this new forum and to stay off the NT forum

Keep the pics coming...

What's up WAR BIRD, I was looking for some of your old posts. I'll put another pict of your boat up.

I am starting to gather parts for my QUAD install. Maybe I'll have it by next spring.


SEA YA soon Tony

Driven, can you verify this? Any idea when? If they don't release it at the '07 Miami show then I guess I'll be going with the 300xs opti instead. Been waiting long enough for this rumored 350 to come out. I'm not so certainit ever will.

Enforcer, what top end will you expect to get with 4 motors? The speed you indicated you're getting with triples leads me to believe your 37 is somewhere over 10,000 lbs. Any idea on weight?

33 Apache, my boat weighs in at 12,500 with trips and 150 gallons of fuel.

My top end is 56-58. I am currently expirementing (again w/bigger props 24 B-1's had 22's on and I am seeing 3 mph more in cruise. (I also need to take off bottom paint this fall, figure this should be good for a few mph)

I am lifting the outers up 2" and hope to gain more top end . Boat was built for quads, they were runinng 20" shafts on outers and 25" in center.

Mine has a 30 in center which is now all the way up and 25 on outers. I had to by custom brackets to get it to the right height. ( Older Mercs were a lot thinner) and bracket width is lacking.

I am also experimenting with fuel placement. I have a 1,000 gallons capacity. (only use about 100) The way the tanks were placed in floor makes it difficult to blance the boat either all the way at stern or bow.

Stern tank is 14 foot long 350 gallonns and Bow tanks is about 12 that holds 350. Two side tanks that I don't use.

Any way with quads numbers are 66-68 maybe 70.

There was a boat test done on a newer midnight with Quad 300 X's I believe it topped out at 78mph. I will try to find it and post it.

Keep in mind the midnights are not ment to be the fastest out there. I can definetly tell you that I have been tried offshore in real conditions by boats that are faster then mine and I have waxed their a$$e$.

The boat truly shines in the rough stuff.
