I would not rule out the 450 Merc
Did you order your QX? I'm also looking at a QX for Lake Murray, SC. Currently a RSB 25 owner with 300 Yamaha. Looking to go with new 425 Yamaha on this heavier boat.Planning to order a new QX25 within the next week. I have talked myself out of going with the Yamaha 350 with all if the issues (fly wheel) I have read about online. This leave me with the Mercury Verado 350 & Mercury Verado 400 options.
Does anyone have any experience with the Mercury 350 or 400 on a Bennington?
Is the 400hp motor over kill for the QX25?
Is there any advantage of one over the other? I know I will see greater top end speed with the 400 but will I see more mid range torque?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

Would like to hear from other QX owners and their experience with this boat.
Didn't you have the big block a few boats ago?I have a 2019 QX25 with a Mercury 400R engine and top out about 54 mph loaded light at 6500 rpms. I have the Cladded Arch and front top. I could change the prop and get a little more speed as I am still 500 rpms below the 7000 max on this engine, but there is no reason too as my wife starts giving me the look and tells me to slow down at about 40 mph. I only get to have fun at high speed when I am by myself. Love the boat and this engine combo.
