Willard doesn't list a price for the Merc's since they don't feel that they aren't "robust" enough for a commercial application.
yes, but you guys do not want a Willard for commercial work
We fit within reason what the client wants that means we only try to fit Mercury outboards or Mercury Diesel
The 7 mr Willard in size is not much different to my 750 Parker Baltic demo rib and the Mercury Diesel 4.2 320 HP with bravo one drive is a perfect package with much more deck space comparing to the Willard 7 mtr with Cummins 5.9 or 6.7
The new Mercury Diesel QSD 2.0, 2.8 ,4.2 and the TDI 3.0 & 4.2 are all DTS / Smartcraft ready as well. we have fitted many for commercial work as well with either stern drives or jet drives
It seems that Willard may not very flexible but when of if the military orders dry up I guess they will have a change of mind.
