Ken Block Announces New Partnership With Marine Products And His Shift to Supra Boats
PARK CITY, UT, JULY 10, 2018:
For this summer’s boating season, Block made the decision to partner with Marine Products and to get behind the wheel of a 2018 Supra SL, powered by a 6.2L Ford Raptor motor that’s been finessed by Indmar for marine usage and features a Roush supercharger, generating 580 lb-ft of perfect wake-creating torque.
“I made the decision earlier this year that I wanted to get myself and my family into the absolute best boat on the water for this summer,” said Block. “We love hitting the local lakes around Park City, as well as heading down to Lake Powell every summer, and now that my kids are getting bigger, they’re really getting into wakeboarding and wake surfing. When doing my research and in speaking with the folks over at Marine Products, Supra came to the top of the list—especially since there’s the option for that supercharged Raptor V8! Plus, I think this boat matches nicely with my matte black Ford F450 that we’re using to haul it this season. I’m really looking forward to getting this thing out there this week and making some waves.”
With Block being Block, a stock-appearing Supra SL wouldn’t be enough. He’s outfitted his with a custom wrap to match his racecars for this current season—pictured here with his 90’s Ford Escort RS Cosworth WRC rally car featuring artwork originally designed by Death Spray Custom out of the U.K., as well as collaborating with Marine Products on an exclusive pair of t-shirts to match, available soon at https://marine-products.com/.
