Crusader, renowned for its premium gas inboards for motor yachts, has also seized the day. All of its Captains Choice engines (275 to 425 hp V-8s) now feature Sync N Cruz. At the touch of a button twin engines electronically synchronize working as one. Once activated, both of the engines’ throttle settings can be manipulated with a single lever. Want cruise control? No problem. Simply set the cruising speed with the touch of a button, them bump the engine speed up or down in 20 rpm increments.

Similar to a car, the cruise control resume feature returns the boat to its designated cruising speed after traversing a no wake or slow speed zone. Crusader also offers PowerView. It reads engine parameters and displays the information and diagnostics codes in plain English on an LCD. It also speaks Spanish, French and German. Besides engine’s vital signs, PowerView also displays essential fuel consumption, average fuel, instant fuel and trip fuel
