Suzuki Repower Takes A 20-Year Old Boat On Tour

It's not every day a 20-year-old, 32' center console goes on tour. But to show how a well-cared-for boat repowered with state-of-the-art Suzuki outboards rivals a new vessel, at a fraction of the cost, Suzuki RePower by Mastry is hosting Demo Days. From April through June, it's offering sea trial events at nine of its 10 RePower Centers throughout Florida. 

Subtle details of the 1998 Intrepid 322 Cuddy may betray its age, but its immaculate condition, combined with a proven hull form, made for the ideal demo project. "We took a style and size of boat that's seen up and down the coast, and added a pair of Suzuki DF350As," said David Taylor, Suzuki RePower by Mastry sales and marketing. "The performance results are stunning and really demonstrate how effective repowering is."

Repowering isn't just for offshore powerboats. Skiffs, pontoons and even sailboats can all benefit from new engines. Suzuki manufactures 139 models of durable 4-stroke outboards, from 2.5 to 350 hp.

Suzuki RePower Centers by Mastry, a Yanmar Company, are staffed by certified technicians, and offer sales, parts and service. Its Owner's Edge program provides a generous trade-in allowance and 24/7 access to a Mastry technician through a private hotline.
