Standard High Flotation Single Outboard Engine Bracket - 11° Transom
If an outboard engine bracket is the ultimate add-on for most outboard-equipped boats, this particular one will up the ante in almost all respects. You will not only benefit from a substantial increment in speed and fuel range without having to replace your existing outboard engine but you’ll also get away with repowering with a much more powerful, and potentially heavy one if you choose to. Your stance at rest will be at a flatter angle as the extra flotation volume, applied just at the right spot for maximum leverage, could help compensate for the extra weight of the bigger engine, but more than that you will indeed gain a flatter running angle, mostly due to the generous setback of this bracket. With that, you will also gain a more efficiently running hull and a considerably drier cockpit
You will benefit from also having an overall better handling boat and one that can shoot out of the hole usually in half the time it used to take with the old engine placement. It will also make your boat safer offering a way lower platform from which to push yourself up to the deck when in the water as well as the ideal place where to affix an available as an option swim ladder.
Our fabricators have been putting together engine brackets almost since they become a thing in deep-V offshore racing boats, whose roots can be followed back to our base in sunny Miami, arguably the US cradle of the class. We learned the ropes at the elbow of the greats back when Thunder Alley (NE 188th St.) was a barren expanse and three large warehouses where the fastest and meanest boats in the world were hand-built, and have maintained, through different iterations, an uninterrupted presence in the Southern Florida boating scene ever since.
And there’s nothing small-time about our outboard engine bracket products as our stuff is sold as OEM to most of all Greater Miami-based boat manufacturers and some of the biggest in upstate Florida and also elsewhere in the Union, and we have type certifications from the NMMA and the ABYC. If you have outboard engine bracket questions don’t hesitate and do contact us for a no-compromise consultation.
Note: Please be advised that all of our brackets are made to order and ship via expensive LTL freight so we won't accept returns. Check your boat's measurements carefully and make sure your order perfectly reflects what you want.
This standard high flotation bracket's design is optimized for 11-degree transom angles and our standard 72" wide swim platform.
Max engine power rating: 450 HP.
100% CAD designed & CAM manufactured.
All-aluminum construction from 3/8” (transom plates) and 1/4” (rest of the structure) thick cold-formed Alcoa 5052 H32 series sheets. Engine-plate is a 2 x 1/4" TIG-welded sandwich structure, with internal 90° bend reinforcements for max torsional rigidity.
54 gallons of added flotation volume in the deep-vee-shaped airbox for added static and dynamic stability. This bracket weighs just 125 lbs thanks to its aerospace-grade aluminum construction.
Exclusive dual-electrostatic powdered coatings: primer + gloss powder coating for the ultimate in marine environment protection. We first apply an electrostatic primer coat, oven-cure it, and then apply a thick, high-mil powder coating for the final external coating. No other competitor in the market goes that far to ensure your new bracket's appearance and durability.
Awlgrip Sandtex textured, anti-slip treatment to the platform's top surface ensures perfect traction, safety, and durability under wet conditions.
Standard 2 x 3.75-inch saltwater aluminum-specific sacrificial anodes (zincs).
Our goal as craftsmen is to convey value to our customers, non-stop.
We delight in advancing change, with the realization that our new products are never the same as the ones before them and take deep pride in the fact that they’re simply better. And will always be.
I highly recommend WWI! Beautiful craftsmanship and high quality materials. Excellent prices, service and on time delivery. I purchased a 38” Leaning Post in the bright brush aluminum finish and the welds are excellent / flawless!
Most pleased with the service, contact with the business, flexibility and willingness to fit my needs for custom work, quality of product, attention to detail and personal treatment. This is what a business should be and is. I can't say enough about the operation. Will recommend to others and look them up again if more work is needed. Cheers from southeast Alaska!
