The Infamous Mercury Racing 1350


We review one of the most 
recognized monster power plants in the performance boating industry to-date, Mercury Racings 1350. This infamous motor brings adrenaline junkies the best of both worlds offering white knuckle horsepower along with peace of mind reliability as this motor has proven its self time and time again running in a various number of race and poker runs boats around the world. The massive 1,350 horse power all comes to you in a sleek and refined look compared to traditional motors of this size, which is a nice fit to make with some of the more modern styled performance boats becoming available one the market. You can even have your engine perfectly matched to your boat with the option of 10 unique colours for your carbon fiber coverings. 

From start to finish this motor stays the true skill and craftsmanship we have all come to know over the years with Mercury Racing featuring an enhanced turbo system that has been engineered to produce no lag but still allows you wind the motors out to 6500 RPM. To produce this prop busting 1350 Mercury Racing used a 9 Liter V-8 foundation which ended up weighting in at approximately 1720 LBS, this might sound big but with the refined set up this motor comes in lighter than a lot of its competitors. So when it comes to those that need the horse power but want to keep their weight down these motors might be what your boat needs to reach it peak.

The one part about this motor that does narrow down the market of this great engine is the base price and rigging that would put a good dent in the majority of an average persons cheque book coming in at around $200,000. But when it comes to the boat world this price tag is nothing out of the norm for big horse power marine engines and chances are if you got a boat that needs these, then you probably have the extra $400K for a pair of these bad boys just be sure not to forgot to save some the gas. This motor is definitly one you have to see and hear to understand just how amazing it is and with the impression it will leave on you, will make that price tag a justifiable number which includes a 1-year limited warranty for recreational boaters..
