Everyone wanted to show off their hottest products at the 2018 Miami International Boat Show, including engine manufacturers. Below is a short list of some of the new powerhouses presented this year in Miami:

- Seven Marine launched its Seven Outboard Portfolio, which features new 527- and 577-hp models, as well as a redesigned 627-hp model. These high-power outboards are built on the company’s 6.2L supercharged V8 platform and are offered with Seven’s new twin-prop CR (contra-rotating) gearcase option.

- YANMAR’s new 3JH40 inboard engine is being billed as the world’s smallest common rail (CR) diesel engine. This 3-cylinder powerhouse has an output of 40 mph with minimal noise and emissions. YANMAR also unveiled two additions to its 4LV Series of CR engines, the 230 and 250.

- Honda Marine has redesigned three of its flagship motors, the BF200, BF225 and the BF250. All three motors feature Honda’s new “Progressive V Form,” which includes both aesthetic and technical enhancements.

- Building on its line of popular Pro XS outboards, Mercury Marine is presenting the 150 Pro XS, the quickest, lightest and most advanced in the series. And if that’s not enough, Mercury Marine has also introduced a whole new V-6 FourStroke outboard family, which includes 175-hp, 200-hp and 225-hp FourStroke outboards, as well as a V-6 200-hp SeaPro commercial outboard.
