There will be people around who will be putting 4 of these on the back. I couldn't even afford the transom !

Its only being made for people who have a Bugatti Chiron sitting in the driveway of their Point Piper home not people who park their Hyundai Getz in front of their Mt. Druitt house :whistling:😄

 

2 speed transmition sounds interesting, not sure why you would only naturally aspirate it though??

Your next outboard @zmk1962?

 

V12 Verado and 600HP

Bahaha 🤣 that’s insane... “we included the most technically advanced technology and packaged it in the smallest space “ ... so you guys can go and dunk it in salt water ... yee ha    
Thanks for sharing Antony - there’s lots of innovation there and lots to go wrong - hopefully  it will be a long time before barrycuda needs a new powerplant.

Cheers Zoran

ha! not to mention you would probably drink at least 500l or more in an afternoon. i saw a RIB at the boat show last year with two 400s on the back , fuel tank was 1100l , imagine being able to afford to burn $2500 of petrol, in a day :D

Spending $25 on fuel is too much.

My in-laws had a 38ft Mustang with twin 5.7 ltr motors.

I once took it out and it had a full tank, burned around the harbour, round to middle harbour and up and down the river and when I went back that evening I had 1/4 tank.

I filled her up and it cost me $790 hence forth I never borrowed it again. Fuel was $1.34 at the marina which was .30c dearer than at the petrol station.

I could run my boat for 10 yrs for the price you paid for fuel that day.😂

This crabbing boat passed me at full throttle on the Mary River at Shady Camp many years ago, I was in my own world trolling, scared the bejesus out of me. And then there was the wake.

A lot of horse power for back then.

at drummoyne today, a RIB turned up to be put onto a trailer, the young bloke that was in it and his hot girlfriend, I asked how many it would sit, about 10 he said its the smaller tender for the super yachts, it had a 250 on the back. I mentioned the black one at the spit with twin 450s, he said its part of the group of boats he works for. I asked if they were going to swap the 450s for twin 600s, he said maybe bit too much, I said "never!" , he laughed.

Imagine the boat you could buy & still have enough left for fuel to see your fishing days out

For the price of one 600hp $70,000 😱

Thats a lot of $$$$ I had been trying to see if I could find the price

 

That would be $US . Probably at least $110,000 I'd guess. 

The 450 motors are $85,000 each, plus fitting

I know.But If you can afford 70k for a donk you don't care If the price of potatoes at woolies goes up 10c a bag would be my guess.

Unlike cars - the  boat  motor technology has stuck in the past with poor efficiency due to lack of real competition on the market for decades and targeting mostly high income customer segment. 

I hope the electric battery technology gets soon to the price, weight, efficiency level enough so electric motors can be used widely in recreational fishing boats -  no more noise, no smell, easier service, and free or cheap charge at home i.e. more fishing.

But it would be a nice addition?

A permanently mounted fuel browser would be my priority.
