557 hp LSA 6.2 ltr V-8 OUTBOARD engine!!!!!

Just introduced at the Miami boat show....unbelievable engineering, same supercharged engine as in the Cadillac CST hot rod. Engine sits in a horizontal position (wet sump) with a 90 deg. transfer case to a ZF marine transmission. The thing weighs 1000 lbs. and obviuosly for a very rich guy with a very big offshore boat. The developer is an X- Mercury Marine engine wizard.....www.seven-marine.com hit video link for more info.

That's crazy. I'm curious what the price tag is for one of those.

Sorry bout that, some said $52k and some said $70k ....and you know they will be installed as duals or trips on REALLY big offshore rigs. Can't even imagine having that kind of money.

Pretty cool. tho I don't know the benefit or if there is any to having an outboard over inboard/ I/O, other than there easier to replace..

I'v been thinking about buying a small runnabout or bow rider, but I'll be lucky to get a 75 hp Johnson

Mercury has lead the way for engine performance. Quite a few years ago they set out to break a trans-Atlantic record, IIRC they used Merc 250's, if one failed, they threw it overboard and used another.

From what I've been reading today...supposedly Merc Marine has had nothing to do with the development. I can see 3 benefits off hand on the big offshore boat, the guy's running twin Cat or Yanmar diesels $$$$$$$ compared to twin or even trip 557's plus the cost of maintence and repairs for the oil burners and required drives. Also not having the inboard engines would open up a lot of space inside the hull. And of course last but not least....BRAGGING RIGHTS!!
