Verado 325!

I subscribe to a USA based Verado owners website that seems to have some level of input direct from Mercury. They say that the boat show this winter will launch the new 325 Verado for fitting to new boats next Spring!!! Wow, bet that can help with global warming.......

hmmmmm 325hp, we did a hole shot today, from 0 to 40 plus knots was less than 5 secs, the power from 2 x 275 is something else, so 325hp wow plus the fuel economy from a Verado 275 so far we personally think is really good, as our trip back from Calais throttling all the time through big seas we averaged 1.2l/mile per engine.

I vaguely remember there was mention of a 400 Hp version for racing in the near future (when they were originally announced). Seems like there is plenty of scope for a next generation.

Talking of horse power Yamaha (according to the rep) are to launch
a 350 V8 four stroke and a 300.
I wonder if evenrude Etec will follow, as all the the new big stuff seams to be on the four stroke front.

There have been rumours around for ages of all these super outboards - including an ETEC V8 400hp. Unfortunately nothing definite seems to appear.

Progress eh? There were 300hp V8 outboards out in the 70s and 80s - maybe even earlier!!!

Sometimes talk to a guy who has a boat shop near the testing center in Florida, he told me some years ago his buddy had worked on a 500hp+ verado, it was just experimental and only to gauge it's reliability at extreme outputs, but if it ever got the green light a 400ish hp racing version would be more like it
