The company said the all-new Raptor 460 is built on the current Ford and Indmar platform.

Indmar Marine Engines said Thursday that it has expanded its world headquarters in Millington, Tenn., by 25,000 square feet.

Separately, the company said its all-new 2017 Raptor 460 is making its world debut at the Miami International Boat Show.

The company said the Raptor 460, which has 453 pound-feet of torque, is based off a proven workhorse, the Built Ford Tough 6.2L 16-valve SOHC V8 engine with dual-equal variable cam timing that was designed, engineered, built and torture-tested by Ford — the engine that powers the F-150 F-Series Super Duty trucks, which Indmar said boast best-in-class gas horsepower, torque and maximum towing ratings.

The company said the headquarters expansion stems from its introduction of new product categories, extending into new segments and an increasing manufacturer roster because of the success of the all-new Raptor Series and a partnership with Ford Motor Co. and Roush Performance.

The new facility houses fabrication, research and development, emissions dyno testing and corporate offices, as well as training rooms, conference facilities, distribution and the addition of new employees.

“At Indmar we dream up new ways to further what’s possible in marine engine technology and ways to expand our boatbuilding partners’ potential,” company president Chuck Rowe said in a statement.

“We refuse to sit idle and be a part of the crowd. We will continue to be the leader and the innovator, and to do this we must relentlessly evolve. As we continue our path to become a more vertically integrated company, the expansion reflects the best of Indmar’s culture — a place where we obsess and invent future products and experiences for boaters all over the world.”
