Mercury Marine has introduced multiple new outboard engine models.

Billed as the next-generation of outboards, the engines are part of the largest single new-product development programme the company has carried out in its nearly 80-year history.

The engines are the 250 and 300hp Verado, 250 and 300hp FourStroke and 200, 225, 250 and 300hp Pro XS plus the Pro XS 175hp 3.4L V-6.

“These new V-8 engines, like the V-6, will set a new benchmark in the marine industry in the eyes of the consumer,” said John Pfeifer, Mercury Marine president.

Consumer options

The engines can be configured to meet the needs of a wide variety of boating segments and expand Mercury’s 175-300hp range.

“These engines are naturally aspirated, durable, powerful and provide options for the consumer that they’ve never had before,” added Mr Pfeifer. “This new line-up aligns with what consumers are asking for and we are delighted to deliver it to them.”

Verado sea trials

Sea trials have shown the 300hp Verado is up to 20% quicker, with up to 8% better fuel economy.

The outboards are compatible with Mercury joystick piloting for outboards for maximum manoeuvrability and control. They are equipped with adaptive speed control with increased throttle response.

Adaptive speed control

Users can change between ultra-quiet operation and a louder sport mode.

The V-8 FourStroke engines are designed to have plenty of torque, especially at mid-range.

Consumers can choose between mechanical or digital controls and hydraulic or power steering. 

All Mercury’s V-6 and V-8 Pro XS engines feature adaptive speed control that maintains a driver’s desired rpm regardless of load or condition.

The 200-300hp Pro XS models are available with either mechanical or digital controls.
