Mercury Marine said it partnered with Netherlands-based RIB boatbuilder Revolt Custom Boats.

The first boats to hit the water are Revolt 31X’s powered by twin Mercury Racing 400R Verado outboards.

Mercury said Revolt founder John Biesheuvel has designed custom performance powerboats for 20 years.

“It's what we like to call the relentless pursuit of perfection,” Biesheuvel said in a statement. “Each new Revolt is an innovation as we constantly strive to redefine the vision of perfection and make every Revolt better than the last in terms of craftsmanship and technology. This partnership with Mercury Marine is the next step in providing our customers a boat and engine package that will set us apart from the competition.”

“We are extremely proud to be a part of this exclusive project,” Benelux Mercury Marine director Hans Roelants said. “Mercury Marine’s high-class Verado engines are a perfect match for the high-performance products build by Revolt. The first boats with twin 400R Verado outboards are being used by happy customers, and more projects are in the pipeline.”
