HUSTLER BUILDING NEW 39 ROCKIT WITH TWIN MERCURY 1100’s

Building a new 39 Rockit with Mercury 1100’s and M8

CALVERTON, NY– Hustler announces today that they are currently building a new 39 Rockit equipped with twin Mercury 1100’s.

To be equipped with Mercury M8 drives, the newest 39 Rockit is the second 39 Rockit equipped with twin 1100’s, the first with Mercury Power.

“Twin Mercury 1100’s and M8 Drives is an excellent motor and drive package,” said Joe LoGiudice, President of Hustler Powerboats. “The one year warranty really eases the customer concerns about the motor or drive breaking down and shows people how much belief Mercury has in their products .”

“We are excited about this project,” said Paul LoGiudice, Vice President of marketing and sales for Hustler. “With two different 39 Rockits each with twin 1100’s, we are hoping to at least bring one of them down to Lake of the Ozarks this year.”

The 39 Rockit was designed for people looking to achieve 110+ mph safely without the worries of chine walking or  porpoising. Prices start at $498,934 depending on power and drive choice.

CALVERTON, NY– Hustler is pleased to announce the completion of the first stage of testing the 39 Rockit with Twin Young Performance 1100 EFI motors and Mercury Number 6 drives.

With Rolf Papke of Pro Technologies at the helm and Eddie Young of Young Performance gauging the engine conditions, the 39 Rockit hit a top speed of 132 mph before maximizing the prop.

“It was the fastest and most stable V-bottom I have ever driven as it made a two foot chop look like a piece of glass,” said Papke. “The boat was so tame and quiet that I did not need to run the boat with the trim tabs down at any point of driving it.”

“It was the most boring 132 MPH boat ride that I ever had,” added Young. “The boat did not do anything stupid– going straight through 2 foot chop in any direction. You could put a cup of coffee on the dash.”

The weather conditions while testing was at 62 degrees with 10 to 20 mph wind gusts blowing east to west along with a two foot chop in the water. The speed was achieved on 3/4 throttle, 17 inch by 35 degrees pitch Hering props at 6,000 RPM’s. “This boat will achieve 140 mph with the proper props,” said Joe LoGiudice, the owner of Hustler Powerboats. “We are looking forward to getting this boat dialed in.”

The 39 Rockit was designed for people looking to achieve 110+ mph safely without the worries of chine walking or  porpoising. Prices start at $498,934 depending on power and drive choice.
