Eight Hot New Engines at the 2014 Miami Boat Show

There's no better place to see all the power options available to you than at a boat show, and no better show to browse than the Miami International Boat Show. Here are some hot new engines to check out on site. Volvo Penta V8-350
The new 350 is the same block as Volvo Penta's well-received V8-380 that we tested on several boats last year. It boasts the same variable valve timing, electric vessel control and an industry leading power-to-weight ratio. It will pair well with small family runabouts, like the Bryant Calandra, which we tested with a Volvo Penta 320. Where: Sea Isle Marina, Slip 311
