    Figured I'd cross-post this here for all Rotax enthusiasts to see:

    "BRP Marine Group has announced the release of its largest Rotax jet propulsion engine yet – the Rotax ACE (Advanced Combustion Efficiency) 300. The new engine is now available on Scarab jet boat models and Chaparral Vortex models."

    Also the same announcement on Power Boat World:

    Supercharger no longer requires maintenance, this is a great development for this engine. Class leading HP also. I like my Yamaha 1.9 HO at 180hp but I'd love it a lot more at 300hp, I think Yamaha might have to up their game soon.

    Those hp/torque ratings are not easy to compare as Yamaha chooses not to publish their numbers and no one puts those things on a dyno, etc. So, it is hard to tell exactly, side-by-side. But the SVHOs are probably pretty close to the ACE.
