  • Engine Details: The inherently balanced in-line six-cylinder engine and our Advanced Mid Section (AMS) with perimeter mounts virtually eliminate vibration in the boat. Perfect for sneaking up on fish or cruising on luxury pontoons.
  • Making Boating Easier: Available Active Trim makes boating easier and more enjoyable by automatically trimming your engines and simplifying boat operation while improving engine performance and decreasing fuel costs.
  • Joystick Piloting for Outboards: Experience 360-degree control at your fingertips. Joystick Piloting for Outboards allows you to move sideways, diagonally or spin the boat on its own axis. Dock in close quarters. Easily load the boat on a trailer with a single hand on the joystick. And Skyhook digital anchor will keep you locked in a specific location and heading despite wind and current conditions.
