May the Force be with You

All our engine options feature the Bravo III dual counter-rotating propellers, giving you the best steering control and incredible performance when out on open water. The extra blade on the propellers allows your DAMSKO to plane-off at a lower speed, making it optimal for fuel efficiency. Plus it results in minimal bow-rise, meaning better forward visibility all around.

 

With a choice of various Mercury Marina engines, the Damsko is definitely a force to be reckoned with. This beautiful racer can take you from unpredictable waves to smooth waters. You'll be driving with confidence, knowing your DAMSKO will never fail you and always has your back. Ready to guide you on your adventures: fishing, epic parties, wakeboarding or cruises. You guessed it, the Damsko's the perfect companion for all of that.

Inboard Sterndrive 

A sterndrive is an inboard/outboard motor which has an outboard lower unit that connects up through the transom of the boat to an inboard diesel or gas engine. As the Damsko starts at 7.5meters and gets longer, it’s a boat that needs more horsepower. The inboard sterndrive is the obvious choice, as they have huge amounts of torque and power size engines available.

 

Performance: An inboard/outboard motor is acclaimed for its speed. The positioning of the outdrive motor in the back of the boat is what gives you a better and faster performance. This is the type of motor position you would want if you’re looking for a fast speedboat. Other inboards are placed more towards the middle part of the boat and would not be as fast.

 

Convenience: The tilt mechanisms on the inboard motors with sterndrive are excellent for shallow water and are very easy to drive and control in most areas.

The Damsko 750 Engine Options

There are two gasoline choices that come with the DAMSKO 750, both designed to carry a significant amount of weight, though the 350hp is tailored for fast, continuous speed whereas the 250hp is more suited for those who want to relax on the water with an added boost of power. The diesel choice that comes with the DAMSKO is the Mercury Diesel TDI 3.0L 260hp. If you're interested in an electric option, please get in touch with us. Check below for the engine specs.
