Verado 350 miami

At last the Verado 350 has been unveiled.

http://www.boats.com/news-reviews/ar...outboard-debut

This is a Verado I may want - at least it now has a decent power to weight ratio.........

New engine weighs 681lbs or 310kgs - not exactly light but a lot better than a Yam V8. There is a rumour that the actual power output may be as high as 380hp - if so I definitely want one!!!

Nice one Cod, had kept an eye out amongst the guys in the know but until you posted that link had still not come across any spec's...it is similar to how I'd imagined as I mentioned in the other thread last week, a kind of racing'ish but not racing racing version should be perfect for your boat...defo give your boat a bit of kick Codprawn get ye wallet out now for a speedy boating season

I would rather an ETEC V8 but it's taken them long enough to produce the 300!!!

I won't order one for this season - I don't like being a guinea pig - but it will make a great winter project. By then I should have our new shipping company up and running and save a fortune by importing one.

Ye that could prove very frustrating should it have many bugs to be ironed out and at $30k plus tax it's a lot of dosh to find out...I guess it will be interesting to see if ETEC up their game to match HP with Verado

Codders, is your Rib able to take a 350?

What sort of performance would you get with a 350 on board
