We caught some video of Charles Plueddeman looking over the 7 Marine 557hp outboards, now ready for production.

We’re here at the dock at the Miami Boat Show with the 7 Marine 557 outboards. This is the third year the 7 Marine motors have been in Miami; the first year was a prototype, and last year they had a running motor on the water that we took a little spin in. This year they’ve got full production engines.

In fact, just two weeks ago, 7 Marine got their full on EPA certificate, and they’re ready to go into full production at their facility in Germantown, Wisconsin.

Now what’s cool about these motors: of course they’re very powerful, 557 hp. It’s a Cadillac-based, 6.2L supercharged V8 engine under here. All digital shifting. And you might also notice this paint job. One of the things they can do with such a low-volume production is paint it any color you want. This is their mahi-mahi paint job.

So it’s pretty cool, and when we get done here we’re going to go take it for a ride on this 38 Fountain.
