Named for its ground-breaking five Mercury Racing Verado 400R outboard engines uniquely set up with surfacing propellers and SportMaster drives, the latest model from Midnight Express Powerboats is called the Quintessence43.
When it comes to five-engine applications, the Hollywood, Fla., boat builder has been on the forefront of the designs since introducing them in 2007. The latest—the world’s first performance five-outboard-engine yacht with two-lever control and a host of innovative features—is extremely impressive given that it’s a combined 2,000 hp stretched across the 43-footer’s extra-wide 12-foot, 5-inch beam.
With this new offering, Midnight has extended its engineering acumen by reinventing the experience of its five-engine boats with the first-ever proprietary and exclusive two-lever control system known as ErgoEngine Control. With speeds comfortably in excess of 90 mph, having only two levers to maneuver, rather than the typical six, simplifies operation. This turnkey solution for advanced five-engine control offers additional design simplicity for owner comfort—just one key starts all five engines, another Midnight Express exclusive.
