A few US Mercruiser Parts websites are now listing Mercury VesselView 4 and Mercury VesselView 7 in stock
VesselView 7 is listed for US$2000 (cheapest seen $1736) – Part Number : 8M0074095
VesselView 4 is listed for US$1000 – Part Number : 8M0074096
The “even steven” pricing hints at that products might not really be in stock – but just place-holders for the “final” version. But in some of the catalogues there are “parts drawings”

If the prices are right – that for $2000 you get the VV7 kit – I would call that a bargain if you compare it with the old VesselView that retailed for $1600 – but had 1/10 of the features of the new VesselView.
But according to Mercury in Europe – shipping is now delayed until 3rd quarter 2013. But we can always hope for sooner.
