Well now you can purchase a 350 HP Verado for about $3,500 bucks more than a 300 HP Verado. That extra 50 horsepower will push you along about 4 MPH faster than a 300 at about the same fuel GPH on a boat that'll handle that horsepower.

Guess most of us will never need one of those 350 Verados.

But Mercury now has three color options for the 350 Verado, two shades of white or black. Mercury also offers decals in different colors as an option at additional cost.

I'd say the price is though reasonable at about $24,000 each.

In 2005 Mercury opened their new plant in China. They were going to build the 40-50-60 four strokes there. They had quality problems, plus they couldn't keep up with demand. Some of the defective motors went to Fondy for rebuilds, plus Fondy picked up the slack in production.

So some 2005 and 2006 were good, some not. Mercury stood behind every problem that I ever heard of, so they did good by their customers.

Mercury makes a very good motor. They did have some problems with the 40-50-60 in 2005 and 2006, but to my knowledge that has been taken care of

I wonder what the problem was? I have 2005 60 that has just shy of 1000 hours on it and I've never had a problem. I believe in '06 they started building them in China and that's when they had some problems with them.

They have a great network of dealers should you need service, add to that Mercury really stands behind their products. I have owned plenty of them over the years. The secret, as with all products, is to buy from the right dealer.

I have a Yamaha now and really like it, but I'm finding it hard to find a good Yamaha dealer in my area to service my motor. What is really important is to buy from a volume dealer for Yamaha, otherwise he will have his hands tied by Yamaha to get the level of service one would expect.

This is where I found the difference between Mercury and Yamaha.

Don't have any inside information, but I bet it has to do with something over 300HP.
