Ford is back in the business of marine engines


BOURBONNAIS, IL – Ford Motor Company and Indmar Marine Engines made an announcement at the Specialty Equipment Market Association premier (SEMA) show that is being held in Las Vegas from November 5th – 8th. The SEMA Show is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world. It draws the industry’s brightest minds and hottest products to one place, the Las Vegas Convention Center. Therefore, it only makes sense that Ford would announce that it will once again reenter the business of marine engines.

“Ford is pleased to be working with Indmar Marine as it plans to re-enter the marine market,” said Jamy Hall, president and CEO for Ford Component Sales. “Ford has a long history of bringing power to the marine industry and views this effort as a strategic opportunity for the company.”

Ford’s 6.2-liter V8 engine, which is offered in F-150 SVT Raptor and F-Series Super Duty trucks, will give water sport enthusiasts the power and torque necessary to meet the increased workload demanded of today’s watercraft, allowing them to go further with Ford out on the water. Indmar Marine Engines will offer three models of varying horsepower and torque that will have plenty of power to pull the most avid water-skiers and wake boarders.


Indmar Marine Engines has been in business for 43 years and operates multiple advanced manufacturing facilities in the United States, with distribution centers in Tennessee and California. The company is the engine supplier of choice for some of the most well-known, high-performance boats used by water sport enthusiasts across the country.

“The 6.2-liter engine was specifically built for a truck, providing the torque needed to tow heavy weight – which is exactly what today’s high-performance watercraft need,” said Chuck Rowe, president of Indmar Marine Engines.

“Our sport has evolved, and with heavier boats, bigger wakes and larger ballast and passenger capacity, the demand on the engine is even greater,” Rowe added. “We looked at the total market, and have spent a great deal of time, research and development dollars to find an engine that will best fit the demands of water sports.”
