Horsepower is going to be the main theme of what we’re going to see going forth into this upcoming boating season. Rumors are there are 450-500 horsepower outboards on the horizon.

We can also expect new multi-cam, little brother stern drive packages coming. And best of all we’re going to see a new player in the engine market that will be releasing a new package with an increased number of cylinders. Not 10, not 12, but even more. So for those of us longing for some new technology to come into this market, this will be the year we see some great innovations.

If you are freezing cold where you live, grab some plane tickets and immerse yourself in the greatest show of the year at the 2017 Miami International Boat Show coming February 16th through 20th.
