Default New Calcutta with New 3 Cylinder Etecs....

So, saw this on the article regarding the large diesel Calcutta.....this picture was posted today....found it interesting, as no one has been able to get a hold of one of these engines yet.......would love to see the spec reports on this 26 when it hits the water.....as far as economy and speed.....and later reliability.

If you follow on the Calcutta owners Facebook page, a guy went on a sea trial last week on that boat. The numbers were very impressive.

How did you know they were not 150s? Serious question as I am curious if there was an identifier. I thought I read there was a bump for the RAVE system.

I saw the video and the numbers on the Facebook page and I feel these are very impressive numbers. I love the Calcutta 26, but did not pull the trigger due to a low 40 mph top speed. 52 top speed and 3 mpg 33 seems great. Very impressive. Are the new i3 light weight?

The 150 is the lightest weight 150 available by a significant amount.

60 pounds lighter than the next lightest, the Merc 150. Even less than the Suzuki 140.

Looks like they are. Nothing visual other than badging. The 115's or the 140's would be plenty for that hull. Remember, the 115 is an HO which means its ~126 HP. There's the the 140's then the 150's. Only 24HP variance throughout the whole offering.

How is it rigged? Is there a tie bar, liquid tie bar, or is it no tie bar with joystick ability?

There is no real answer to that. There is a base price for the boat + engines, shifter, a steering wheel, and 4 cleats/4 rod holders, & probably something I forgot that is standard. You don't want a white hull? - a colored hull is extra, you want a t-top, spring cleats, a battery charger, a dive platform on the back, a ladder to get onto the dive platform, cockpit lighting of any kind, and the list goes on and on, with some buyers getting 25-30 add on's (a t-top for example can run between $6,000 - $11,000 depending on which kind you want and what you want on it).

Liquid (hydraulic) tie bar. And cat hull's are easy to spin, so a joystick is not needed on most small cats.

When we rigged the boat with conventional outboard and hydraulic steering it has a hydraulic tie bar.

when we rig with The Optimus joystick it does not have a tie bar as the two cylinder positioning magic sticks on each cylinder tell the computer where the motors are in relation to each other.

Be ready for some boats to be getting new shoes! Those numbers are amazing for this boat. We trout fished 4 kids and 1 adult off the bow last weekend in 2ft of water. The more I ride/fish on my buddies the more I am completely sold on the idea that this boat is the best combo boat on the market. With these numbers I can only imagine how many re-powers are coming in soon!
