Indmar Marine Engines plans to debut its entry into three new segments this week during the Miami International Boat Show.

A Ford-based dual-performing series of engines extends the Indmar brand into ski/wakeboard boats, jetboats and cruisers.

Indmar will showcase inboard wake, jet and cruiser engines at booth F139 at the Miami show, which opens Thursday and will continue through Monday at the Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin.

Indmar also will showcase its line of service products and its all-new Strainer Pro, which the company said is the first sea strainer with a built-in flush kit.

Since its partnership with Ford, Indmar said it has not only reintroduced the automaker to the marine market and brought Roush Performance supercharging technology to the marine industry for the first time, but the all-new, three-time award-winning Raptor Series also has opened new doors for the company.

“The response to the Raptor launch was overwhelming. The most frequent comment by far was ‘Please make this engine available in jet boats’ or ‘Put this in cruisers!’ That’s precisely what we are doing now,” Indmar vice president Scott Clack said in a statement.

“The all-new jet and cruiser engine series heralds a new chapter in the success story of Indmar and sets new standards in those segments as we position Indmar even more aggressively as a dynamic inboard marine engine brand.”
