“We’ve been eager for this day since we started first developing the Supercharged 6.2L,” said Paul Ray, President, Ilmor. “This entirely new powertrain represents an extraordinary level of power, performance and refinement, something we at Ilmor recognize as a huge industry advancement.” Moreover, Ray was thrilled to take on this endeavor with MasterCraft. “First and foremost, we value the ownership experience, whether that be through our engine performance or our constantly improving customer service. Companies that share that same principal are precisely the companies we like to collaborate with, something we saw in MasterCraft from the very outset of our exclusive partnership in 2011. We are thrilled to introduce this exciting new engine in MasterCraft’s latest line up of boats."
Ilmor has been an active and respected marine powertrain manufacturer since 2002 and has been the exclusive engine supplier to MasterCraft Boat Company since 2011.
