There have been lots of sea trials going on at Merritt Island, Florida in a boat that we have never seen before. The boat is incredibly quiet so we naturally wondered what kind of propulsion system it has. What we discovered might end up being the marine story of the year: the 37' (11.27 m) express cruiser pictured above is powered by twin Mercury 300-hp supercharged Verado outboard engines! By powering this 15,432-lb. (7,000-kgs.) boat with twin outboards Sea Ray has created a completely new type of boat that has a number of important advantages for boaters.
