Mercedes is once again upping its status in the world of racing craft. The new Mercedes-AMG 50’ Marauder AMG boat made its world premiere at the 2017 Miami Boat Show. Designed for high-speed and better performance, carbon-fiber was employed extensively in the design, which helped shed more than 1,300 pounds. The deck, cockpit and consoles were developed using advanced laminate analysis techniques and are all constructed from carbon-fiber with foam core. The engine hatch is also completely carbon fiber, employing vacuum infusion technology for its construction.
The Cigarette Racing Team 2017 50’ Marauder AMG is powered by a pair of Mercury Racing 1550/1350 QC4v engines and M8 stern drives, which deliver up to 3,110 horsepower. These highly powerful engines are dual calibration, which enable the operator to switch engine power levels through an electric key fob. The Race Key fob unlocks up to 1550 horsepower, requiring race fuel. The pleasure Key fob is used for operating at 1,350 horsepower with 91 octane fuel.
The front mid-engine concept with a transaxle, handcrafted AMG 4.0L biturbo engine rated at 577 horsepower, extensively modified suspension, increased aerodynamics and intentional lightweight construction laid the foundation for a singularly dynamic driving experience. This is a truly one-of-a-kind boat–we could easily see ourselves cruising around Biscayne Bay at the helm of the Marauder AMG. Price is available upon request.
