Ya, it's an updated lineup. All engines, 527, 577, 627 are available with the CR dual propeller lower. The 527 is priced lower, has a couple less features, a new cowling, and not available with the GT lower. I believe it starts at $69k

Have to say I’m a little surprised Yamaha didn’t chose to offer a duoprop for the 425 considering their emphasis on its application on bigger boats (torque) and not smaller, faster hulls

2019 is not over yet. Per the Midnight Express CEO video from MIBS, they are anticipating a larger HP engine to be introduced this year, but stated he was unable to disclose who that manufacture is. One can deduce that the manufacturer will be Mercury since 7 Marine and Mercury are the only engines I have ever seen on a ME and 7 Marine is already distributing higher hp engines.

Before 7 released the 557, they had taken the beast to 900.

The 527 runs less boost, and has a different ECU tune. Also, to keep the price down, the cowl is limited in color, a different design, and no LED lights on the 527.

Probably, just a matter of when.

The Yamaha V8s are pretty quiet at idle. This is four running at the dock.

I wish the author or editor knew the difference between counter and contra, but other than that a nice article

Am I the only one who thinks a boat looks rather ridiculous with six outboards across the stern?

Thanks. I do know the difference, and it's more industry specific. In aircraft, two propellers on a single axis, that counter rotate are often called coaxial contra-rotating. In marine, the terminology used by MerCruiser, Volvo, and Ilmor for two propeller drives on a single shaft is "counter rotating. It's more common terminology in marine, and easy to understand. I prefer to stick with one terminology to avoid confusion, but contra is also correct technically.

Agreed. It not only looks ridiculous, but the drag and weight are also silly.

I laughed at his description of Yamaha owners. It was like the guy was stalking me while I drive around in my Toyota. .

Sorry if I have, or will offend you, but anyone “in the industry” worth their salt will call not call a contra setup a counter setup. They may call a contra rotating setup by a brand name (I.e. duo prop), but never counter rotating. The two terms are used to describe very different mechanisms.

No offense at all, your gripe is with the industry, not me. All the manufacturers call it that, it's in their literature, Volvo, Seven, Ilmor, and Mercury. It is counter rotating, you would also be correct in using contra-rotating, it's just not as common to use.

From Ilmor: "Each drive is outfitted with precision forged gears for exceptional durability, counter-rotating propellers for superior acceleration"
Volvo: "These benefits with the counter-rotating twin propellers, the Duoprop"
Mercury: "Featuring dual counter-rotating propellers, the Bravo Three® gives you great steering control in the marina"
Seven: The lower is actually called the CR. As in "counter rotating"

So I guess those guys aren't worth their salt. But you can write them a letter and I'm sure they'd love to hear from you.
