Verado 350 Sci - any experiences

Hi!

I have a Phantom 25 offshore rig with two Merc 2.5 EFI SS engines (300 hp each). These are Formula One engines, and demand continuous support. And they use 80-100 litre per hrs + 3 litre synthetic oil of NOK 200 per litre per hrs as well...

So I consider to buy one Verado 350 Sci, and would be very pleased if you could come back to me about your thoughts about the engines longevity. I would also be very happy if you could give me some data on fuel consumption at 4,000 and 5,000 rpms.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Cheeers, ToffenG

Verado 350 Sci

HI!

Thanks. Have the engines met your expectations. Do you feel the platform (2,6 litre and supercharger) will be strong enough in the long run. How many hrs have you on your engines. I expect to use my 350 Sci approx. 75 hrs a year, so its not so much. However, I run a great deal offshore in rough conditions.

Cheeers, Toffen G
