The easy way to describe the state of new power in the marine market would be to call this a time of downsizing, only without the negative connotations of the current economic climate. This could work since outboard manufacturers like Honda, Suzuki and Evinrude are focusing on small, with engines in the 15 to 60 hp range. But throw in an 8.2 liter V-8 engine block from MerCruiser and a revamped 300 hp outboard from Yamaha, and the description no longer holds water. Other companies, like Volvo and Cummins, are focusing on how the power is delivered - the drives. With engines big or small, companies are still pushing innovation and changing the way we view propulsion. Here's a quick rundown of what's new.
