New MerCruiser T8200 Tow Sport inboard

Mercury Marine has introduced its new MerCruiser T8200 Tow Sport inboard, adding to the T6200 in the Mercury’s Tow Sport line-up.

The engine is built on Mercury’s 8.2L V8 big-block platform and runs on 87-octane fuel. It can handle tow sport boats up to 26ft long and includes Smart Tow digital control systems.

“Watersports such as wake surfing continue to grow in popularity, with today’s boaters demanding bigger boats with more features and amenities,” said John Buelow, Mercury Marine president. “To deliver what boaters in this segment want and power a new generation of fun seekers, we created the T8200 Tow Sport inboard, backed by 50 years of engineering excellence that have made MerCruiser the legend it is today.”

The T8200 Tow Sport inboard will be available with Varatti Z2272, Z2373 and Z2474 wake boats to complement the existing T6200 and available with Mercury Joystick Piloting for Inboards.

Varatti Boats, a division of Floe International, occupies a 150,000sqft facility in Cambridge, Minnesota.

Larger vessels

“As a longtime Mercury partner, we are thrilled to add the T8200 Tow Sport inboard as an option on all of our Varatti Z surf boats,” said Wayne Floe, CEO of Floe International. “MerCruiser is synonymous with quiet, powerful and efficient performance, and this new engine allows our customers to power larger vessels and enjoy all of their favourite watersports with ease and confidence.”

The T8200 Tow Sport inboard is available in 380hp and 430hp high output models,

The engine is paired with a 1.73:1 gear ratio transmission optimised for tow sport performance.

The T8200 uses Mercury Smart Tow and Surf Control technologies to combine speed, ballast and wake management on Mercury’s VesselView integrated display.

Other key features include Engine Guardian which monitors engine performance with more than 40 sensors to detect potential problems early.

If necessary, Engine Guardian automatically adjusts engine functions to help get boaters home safely.

MerCruiser Tow Sport inboards are treated with corrosion-preventive technologies and have a four-year corrosion warranty.
