Efficient. Maneuverable. Unbeatable.
Single or twin applications up to 65 mph for gas engines up to 525 hp

The twin-prop design says it all. Whether in a single-unit or twin-unit application, the Bravo Three is an efficient drive built without compromise. More than an upgrade from the Alpha drive, it has a mystique all its own. Perhaps it’s the best-in-class shifting or its counterrotating propeller design – enabling agile handling in reverse for precision maneuverability.


RELIABILITY

  • Flow-Torq II Propeller Hub – The “Weekend Saver” protects the entire drive from damage, not just the lower unit

 

PERFORMANCE
  • Bravo One's performance torpedo & Dual Water Pick-ups that allow high X-Dimensions make it the industry leader for performance applications
  • Large propellers on Bravo Two maximize lift and thrust for large boats under 55 mph
  • Twin props & large rudder area with Bravo Three allows uncompromised handling for single-engine boats up to 65 mph
  • Trim limit switch trims drive angle for maximum performance every time
  • Through-Prop exhaust maximizes power and reduces noise levels
