Id opt for the standard production 400 Verado that was released at the Miami Boat Show. If youre satisfied with the top end performance now then a set of new V8 Verado 300s would be a good choice too, if you can get your hands on any.
I'm waiting to hear about the fuel burn difference in the new 300 v8 versus the 350 verado. I'm not overly concerned with top speed but fuel burn and ability to push a heavy load in my 33' twin engine application is at the top of the list.
