Inside SOTW Mag: Product Spotlight—Shaun Torrente’s STR X-ACT Outboard Brackets


With an immense amount of boat racing experience and community support behind him, Victory Team driver Shaun Torrente is manufacturing the STR X-ACT adjustable brackets for the Mercury Racing Verado 400R engines.

Mounted to the transom of several new catamarans featuring Mercury Racing’s Verado 400R engines, including the first MTI 340X that made its debut in August, are new adjustable outboard brackets from talented boat racer Shaun Torrente.

Dubbed X-ACT from STR (as in Shaun Torrente Racing), the precision adjustable brackets, which are the result of race-proven designs, are constructed with billet aluminum to hold up to 700 pounds.

Being that Torrente has grown up around boat racing and extended his roots beyond the tunnel boat circuit by racing offshore, it comes as no surprise he has boats across the globe with his brackets on them. In racing alone, there are some Superboat Stock class boats Stateside with them and XCAT World Series boats using them with the Mercury Racing ROS engines.
