Seven MarineSeven Marine, the premium high-performance outboard engine manufacturer, has gained CE Mark certification for its flagship 627 hp model, enabling the American company to begin selling its top-of-the-range product in Europe.

In response to increased interest in its products from international markets and a growing demand for high-power outboards for larger boats across the globe, the company has gained CE (Conformité Européene) Mark certification – a legislative requirement to conform to health, safety and environmental standards. This designation makes it possible for the Seven 627sv model to be sold within the European Union. 

“This is a strong step forward for us in the European market,” says Brian Davis, vice president of Seven Marine. “Since we first exhibited our outboards in Europe in 2016, and following our acquisition by Volvo Penta last year, European boatbuilders have shown a lot of interest in our outboards. We have developed new products and redesigned the 627 model, to continue our pursuit of offering a premium range of high-performance outboards to a broader market. Part of this philosophy involves adhering to the highest standards and we look forward to introducing Seven Marine products to customers in Europe.”

External design is important to Seven Marine’s customers. The company’s gasoline outboards are elegant and customizable in different colors and carbon/teak cowl accents, showing that the outboard is an integral part of a boat’s overall aesthetic rather than just being its power source. It is the combination of technology-driven high performance and stylish design that has encouraged several European boatbuilders to select the Seven 627sv for their vessels.

“Our Seven 627sv is a premium outboard engine with a lot customizable options, so the process of discussing what the customers want becomes very personal and special,” says Rick Davis, president of Seven Marine. “Some of the customers have chosen Seven Marine so that they can provide more power, or reduce the number of engines while retaining the same power as before if they are switching from a competitor to our engines. And some have chosen the Seven 627sv because of the ability to make the outboard an integral part of their boat’s overall aesthetic.

“We are proud to have such good relationships with the boatbuilders and pleased that some of the Seven Marine-powered boats will be showcased at the Cannes Yachting Festival, Genoa Boat Show and the Monaco Yacht Show, in September.”
