Members of the media and attendees at the 2012 Miami International Boat Show were all witness yesterday to the all-new 565 engine from Mercury Racing. Based off the same block as the Fond Du Lac, Wis., company’s popular 525 EFI engine but stroked to create an additional 31 cubic inches of displacement (533 cubic inches total), the new powerplant pumps out 565 hp and features digital throttle and shift, as well as Mercury Marine’s SmartCraft engine management and information system.
Drive options for the 565 include the standard Bravo One XR and Bravo One XR Sport with 1.35:1 or 1.5:1 gear ratios. Mercury Racing’s Integrated Transom system also is available.
