Reasons to Invest



  • Paradigm Shifting Product - Our proprietary inline four cylinder engine design has solved the secondary balance issue that has plagued this design for over 100 years. It produces greater horsepower, greater efficiency and the best power to weight ratio when compared to all other outboard marine engines.
  • Experienced Team - We are built by boaters for boaters, with combined 80 years of experience and have developed relationships with industry veterans, like Mahle Powertrain, to assist us.
  • Large Market - The global marine outboard engines market is forecasted to reach $13B in 2027 and we hope to become an industry leader.

Current Development Phase


We have completed the proof of concept and Feasibility Study which was executed by Mahle Powertrain, and are currently 1/3 complete with the development of the initial prototypes. Once the prototypes have been tested and stressed, we will proceed with the manufacturing of the separate outboard engine components. The manufacturers of each of these elements have been established with world-leading engineering/manufacturing organizations specific to each sub-assembly.


We will commence development in multiple phases to create the first prototype engine, the flagship 654 (Marketed as the A654). The A654 will serve as the primary design platform for the next four engine prototypes. Upon completion of the 654, 854, and 1054HP versions, we will develop the 454 / 554. All five engines will share most of the internal parts from the A654 along with all external parts such as filters, sensors, starter, and all service components. Mahle is under contract to complete the development of the A654 engine within the following 20 months. All other sub-assemblies will be developed in parallel within this 20-month period allowing the final completion and testing of the Outboard engine at the end of this period.

Our Reg A+ is Closing Soon! Here’s Why We Doubled Down on an Inline Four Cylinder Engine Design

about 1 month ago

Dear Friends and Investors,


One of the most common questions we are asked is centered around why we decided to focus on an inline four cylinder engine design. There are many engine designs that have historical proof, and many others that are overly-optimistic and complex. We believe that with our i4 engine design, we solve a key problem with traditional four cylinder inlines known as secondary imbalance.

Dear Friends and Investors,


As some of you may appreciate, a standard boat usually gets around 3 miles per gallon at MAX RPMs on average. However, the mileage can vary from as low as 0.5 mpg (or less) to as high as 3 mpg (or more) depending on the weather condition, boat’s weight, boat’s condition, RPMs, and most importantly, the boat's engine type.
