Default Mercury 400R Production Issues

For those of you interested in the new 400R, you may be waiting for an unknown amount of time once you deposit your $30K+. My original delivery date was June 1st and now after 3 weeks plus, I'm still trying to determine when it will ship. Two months have past since the order and the only reason I was given was a parts shortage issue.

If a parts shortage is the real reason, I find that concerning Mercury had not setup their parts supply chain effectively with multiple sources. I am working through the dealer who has been very persistent with Mercury but running out of patience.

If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears.

Personally, I try not to buy something like a car, truck, atv, sled, the first year out or the first year with a just released power train. I'll let someone else be the guinea pig. The first year is inevitably saddled with lots of updates, service bulletins, and recalls.

My dealer told me the lead time on 400's went to 14 weeks and 12 weeks on all 300 & 350's. I ordered just in time!!!

I'm happy I have not sold my 300 yet... Rowing a boat is not my style. If this thing comes in before the Owners Ralley at LC, I'm going I'll need that 13 hours of windshield time to relax.
