For the skiboat application, the Pleasurecraft Engine Group Power Plus is a revolutionary innovation that sets the standard for inboard transmission design. The Power Plus features:
- Unique G-Rotor hydraulic pump for smooth, efficient shifting
- Aircraft aluminum for the lightest, most durable transmissions
- A compact, lightweight design to maximize performance
The Power Plus Vee for Wakeboarding
Today’s sport-specific wakeboard boats are too far advanced to rely on V-Drives that were invented decades ago for the cruiser and offshore markets. Those designs are too big, too loud and just plain too old. Pleasurecraft Engine Group is the first manufacturer to design a V-Drive propulsion system specifically for unique demands of the wakeboard boat.
The PP-V’s compact design allows for more below deck space (ie ballast), along with increased room in the interior.
It’s unique positive mounting angle allows the engine to sit close to level during wakeboard runs, eliminating oil starvation, improving efficiency and adding durability.
The through-shaft design makes service and realignment simple.
The AGMA Grade 11 gears found in helicopter gear boxes and in your Challenger Power Plus Vee are the most durable available.
Paired with the Pleasurecraft Engine Group Power Plus, shifting is smooth and super-quiet — in forward and reverse.
Precise Fuel Delivery.
Electronic fuel injection (EFI) provides improved drive-ability, efficiency and performance. Today’s high performance EFI engines require the utmost in fuel delivery systems. Constant fuel flow to the injectors must be guaranteed, regardless of how choppy the water can get or how tight the turn. Therefore, the marine engineer is challenged to find a way to ensure fuel flow without the need for a specially designed fuel tank or other apparatus.
Crusader answers this challenge with exclusive, patented fuel delivery systems: the Crusader Fuel Control Cell. The FCC ensures proper fuel filtration and fuel delivery to the injectors, regardless of the conditions.
When it comes to buyer protection, no other plan in the industry can compare to Challenger by Crusader. All Challenger engines feature a three-year factory-backed warranty. This plan is unsurpassed, and it is a tribute to the confidence we have in our products.
