    Question Mercury's response to the Yamaha SHO?

    Are we going to see it in 2013? or is Merc's response the verado pro XS? I am a diehard merc guy, but that SHO is just unreal. I just got a 2011 z521 with a 250 merc pro xs, but within the next 12-16 months will be in the market again and REALLY hope Mercury will have an answer for that SHO. Anybody know what Mercury has up their sleeve?


    Thanks BBC

    There have been no official announcements.

    New products are commonly released at the Miami Boat Show in February.

    I suspect (and this is simply conjecture) that there will be something coming along that resembles the new 150 4-stroke (perhaps a bigger brother). Traditionally, that much R&D isn't spent on an engne that would remain a "single horsepower model".

    ...and what is so impressive about the SHO? I know a guy that has one and the fuel consumption sucks. It is quiet, but I like the sound of the two-stroke....comes from my dirt bike days I guess. Just interested in what you like on the SHO vs. the Pro XS?
