Raider Outboards

Multi-FUEL Submersible electric start outboard engines

The Raider series of outboards are dedicated to the initial WW II Marine Raiders.  The Raiders were formed by elite units established by the United States Marine Corps during World War II to conduct amphibious light infantry warfare, landing in rubber boats and operating behind enemy lines.  The Raiders were disbanded on 8 January 1944 when the Corps made the doctrinal decision that the Raiders had outlived their original mission.  However, most combat veterans see the Raiders as “an elite force within an elite force, and many considered the first SEAL’s.  The Marines recently reactivated the Raiders at Camp Lejeune and Camp Pendleton.

The Raider development was funded by USSOCOM under a full and open contract by PEO Maritime.

The Raider, patent pending, Safety Jet can be purchased in a kit which retrofits a propeller drive outboard motor system to a jet pump system. The Safety Jet was designed for safety for swimmers and divers in training situations.  The Safety Jet drive system is excellent for “brown” water operations where search and rescue missions happen.  For missions that has rocks/coral the Safety Jet can absorb hits that ruin propellers.
