TNT Custom Marine is proud to be a preferred Platinum Mercury Racing dealer, providing the very finest service and rigging in the industry.
Mercury Racing general manager Stuart Halley, marketing manager Andrea Jansen and the rest of the crew in Fond du Lac, Wis., had their work cut out for them with a late spring introduction of the 450R, the most powerful outboard engine ever introduced by the company. The challenge had nothing to do with the supercharged V-8 outboard itself, which produces 40 percent more torque and 50 more horsepower than its in-line V-6 sibling. The challenge came in unveiling a product that pretty much everyone and his or her cousin, at least in the go-fast boating world, knew was coming. But damn if they didn’t pull it off in great style during a two-day event; one for members of the media and the other for boat builders, dealers, and a few select customers in Nashville.
