Monster outboards coming to Europe
Seven Marine the US-based manufacturer of the most powerful outboard motors in the world has gained CE Mark certification for its flagship 627hp model enabling it to be sold within the European Union.
“This is a strong step forward for us in the European market,” said Brian Davis, vice president of Seven Marine. “Since we first exhibited our outboards in Europe in 2016, and following our acquisition by Volvo Penta last year, European boatbuilders have shown a lot of interest in our outboards. We have developed new products and redesigned the 627 model, to continue our pursuit of offering a premium range of high-performance outboards to a broader market. Part of this philosophy involves adhering to the highest standards and we look forward to introducing Seven Marine products to customers in Europe.”
“Our Seven 627sv is a premium outboard engine with a lot customizable options, so the process of discussing what the customers want becomes very personal and special,” said Rick Davis, president of Seven Marine. “Some of the customers have chosen Seven Marine so that they can provide more power, or reduce the number of engines while retaining the same power as before if they are switching from a competitor to our engines. And some have chosen the Seven 627sv because of the ability to make the outboard an integral part of their boat’s overall aesthetic.
Applications to gain CE Mark certification for Seven Marine’s 527 and 577hp engines are in progress and are expected to be approved in the coming months.
