I thought it would be helpful to share with you details regarding the two midsection and three gearcase options available for our new V-8 Four-Stroke outboards.
The Tri-ram midsection is featured on the 250R and selected 300R models. Triple power trim rams along with the power trim pump are integrated within the die-cast clamp bracket assembly. A stiffer, high-durometer elastomer upper mount and solid lower mounts are used for enhanced handling at higher speeds. The 250R comes with the Sport Master gearcase. Sport Master and Torque Master gearcases are both options for selected 300R Tri-ram models. The Tri-ram midsection is designed for use on lighter weight hulls on protected waters.
Heavy duty midsection 300Rs come with solid mounts and robust, forged transom brackets with single ram power trim and a remote trim pump designed to endure the harsh offshore environment. These models are available with the Sport Master and 5.44″ HD gearcases.
Rear tie-bar models feature a factory installed tie-bar mount plate. The tie-bar, not included but available from after market suppliers, provides enhanced engine stability for high speed catamarans and vee bottoms.
The surface piercing Sport Master, designed for boats capable of speeds in excess of 85 mph, features low-water pick-ups and a crescent leading-edge for maximized efficiency and speed.
The Torque Master, designed to run partially surfaced, carries the load of heavier tournament bass boats and multi-species hulls while maximizing top speed and drivability.
The 5.44” HD is designed for use on bay boats and multi engine performance center consoles where the application requires a more submerged gearcase.
