Crusader Marine Engines
305XL, 350XL and 350XL-HT

For power, reliability and economy, the new Crusader 305XL, 350XL and 350XL-HT inboards have set new standards for small block performance and application versatility.

Fully wired to accept Crusader's new MSTS computerized engine management system, the standard 305XL, 350XL and 350XL-HT feature an equipment list that redefines the small-block gas inboard, including a recalibrated carburetor for more efficient fuel flow; easy-to-service belt adjustment; a unique center manifold design that provides the most efficient exhaust flow in the industry; and much more. And the 350XL-HT, with its roller cam design and high-performing Holley 4010 carburetor outputs an imposing 265 horsepower ~ 4400 rpm...6% greater than the 350XL!

And when installed with optional MSTS, each of these engine packages maintain maximum horsepower output with optimum fuel efficiency at every rpm, under all operating conditions. A 5000 rpm limiter also prevents potential overrevving damage while exceptional spark regulation averts damage from unwelcome detonation.

Models 305XL, 350XL and 350XL-HT. Leading the pack with new standards in mid-size V8 performance...only from the most experience manufacturer of gas inboard power in the world.
