Soon after Carl Kiekhaefer left his Wisconsin family farm in 1939 he founded Mercury Marine and changed the course of the boating industry forever. Mercury was soon recognized as a powerful leader in the marine industry – a position strengthened by each ensuing Mercury innovation. Today, Mercury´s heritage is rich with success born from a culture of knowledge, commitment and uncompromising standards, and bold has always been the unifying factor in the decisions and actions that led us. To become the leader in marine propulsion. Bold not only drives us to produce extremely reliable engines with exceptional performance, it leads us to invent our own alloys, to design the most innovative controls and rigging, to create experience-enhancing propellers, and to offer the finest marine parts and accessories.
Reliable, powerful and efficient
Backed by decades of experience on water all over the world, our FourStroke models deliver reliable, economical performance you can count on season after season. They are reliable, powerful and efficient. Special attention was brought to user-oriented design which results in QR-codes for access to the model-specific maintenance manual placed directly on the engines, the new service door on top of the cowl of all V6 FourStroke models or the ergonomic tiller for the F15 EFI and F20 EFI models.
The Mercury V6 FourStroke models with 175, 200 and 225 HP FourStrokes are precision engineered from skeg to cowl. Packed with advanced technology to improve all aspects and reliability, the robust 3.4-litre V6 engines – designed to minimize weight and maximize fuel economy – deliver exceeding hole shot, top speed and fuel efficiency.
The mission to our engineers was: design and make the most reliable 150 hp FourStroke outboard in the industry. To do so they started with a strong 3.0L block capable of producing more than 250 hp and asked it to deliver only 150 hp. Doing so greatly increases the powerhead´s long term durability. Additionally, its small, compact design makes it a perfect fit with a wide range of boating applications.
These FourStroke outboards displace 2,1 litres, which means they work smarter – not harder – leading to improves durability and longer life, not to mention greater hole short, superior overall acceleration and awesome top speed. Less weight combined with high displacement helps these FourStroke outboards provide maximum fuel efficiency, especially at cruising speeds.
The Mercury 40 hp to 60 hp EFI engines provide enhanced SmartCraft capability – a comprehensive boat and propulsion monitoring system, supplying detailed engine status and performance data for virtually all engine functions such as trim, speed, rpm, troll control, fuel flow and for a wealth of boat functions, like fuel level and battery voltage. SmartCraft also supports advanced optional features like Active Trim or Theft Deterrence System (TDS).
When the battery on an ordinary engine is drained, you have nowhere to go. Not so with a Mercury 25-30 hp FourStroke. Every engine in the horsepower ranges comes standard with a manual recoil starter. So even if the battery quits, you can take matters into your own hands and keep your boating trip going. These engines also feature loads of strong, low end torque and the Mercury multifunction tiller handle which allows you to cruise the water with one hand behind your back.
Mercury F15 EFI and F20 EFI models feature Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) for outstanding performance and improved fuel economy. The engines are ready for a wide range of applications; choose rope or electric starting, tiller or remote control, and up to three shaft-length options. One outstanding feature for tiller controlled models is the ergonomic tiller, which is fully adjustable to your needs and preferences.
Also our small outboards are packed with big features and live up to highest requirements in terms of performance, efficiency and durability. No other manufacturer provides this wide range of engines that are perfectly adjusted to the respective needs. Remarkable examples are the F5 Sailpower, which is designed for the purpose of an auxiliary motor for sailing boats or the F5 Propane which is powered conveniently and eco-friendly by propane.
Unrivaled Driving Experience
Ultimate performance meets ultimate refinement. True greatness believes it can always be greater. It doesn´t settle. There is no finish line. It is an ever-evolving work in progress. But it can always show you how far it has come. This is Verado – amazingly quiet and smooth, exhilaratingly quick out of the hole, fast, fuel-efficient and powerful. It´s the most refined outboard in history, and it´s created for those who settle for nothing but the best.
Mercury Verado doesn´t just sound quiet, it also feels quiet. The exclusive Advanced MidSection (AMS) features a mid-engine cradle, with four progressive rate mounts to isolate the powerhead. Less vibration, more control.
Verado comes standard with Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) for ultra-smooth shifting, instantaneous throttle response, as well as electrohydraulic, automotive-style power steering that provides precision handling. For even more comfort, selected boats with Verado engines can be upgraded with Joystick Piloting for Outboards.
Further exclusive features for 4,6L V8 based Verado models (250 and 300 PS) include Advanced Sound Control (the dual muffler system allows you to toggle between an ultra-quiet and a deeper, sportier tone), Advanced Range Optimization precisely adjusts the fuel mixture and delivers the best possible efficiency at any speed and Adaptive Speed Control, which automatically maintains the set RPM even as load or conditions change. That means you make far fewer throttle adjustments. V8 Verado also features a top cowl service door that enables easy engine oil checks and fills. A single push opens the watertight door for access to the dipstick, service decal, and carrying handle.
Furthering the legacy of the Verado® engine family, Mercury reimagined outboard performance to deliver the ultimate luxury boating experience. The world’s first V12 outboard features groundbreaking product innovations like the industry's first two-speed automatic transmission for an outboard engine, the industry’s first steerable gearcase on an outboard as well as exceptional fuel economy and range.

Mercury Pro XS
Extraordinary engineering for extraordinary speed
Mercury Pro XS outboards from 115 hp to 300 hp are engineered for the most-demanding people on the water – anglers battling on the tournament trail and powerboaters who crave speed and acceleration. Mercury developed exclusive components and tuning to extract every ounce of performance from each Pro XS model.
No outboard gets from zero to wide-open quicker than a Mercury Pro XS, now with V8 4,6L and V6 3,4L muscle. This is performance that will rocket your rig out of the hole and to the next hot spot in record time. These Pro XS models feature generous displacement in a performance-tuned powerhead with a deep-breathing double-overhead-cam design and long-runner intake tract that delivers instant throttle response at any speed.
More displacement delivers more torque, and new Transient Spark technology optimizes spark timing to boost that torque during hole shot with a 1.75:1 gear ratio and a robust 3.2-centimeter-diameter prop shaft is designed for semi-surfacing, high-speed applications. Specific performance calibration takes RPM to 6200 at wide-open throttle for more flexible prop selection.
Reliable, Durable, Hardworking
When you make your living on the water, you need an engine that comes through even under the harshest conditions. All day, every day. Mercury SeaPro outboards are built tougher than tough. Guaranteed to do their job so you can do yours. Mercury SeaPro engines are the only FourStroke outboard engines especially designed for commercial use. Unmatched corrosion resistance, extended warranty for commercial and governmental application and features like the top cowl service door on certain models for convenient engine-oil checks make SeaPro the first choice for everyone who needs engines to rely on.
When the water´s too shallow for propeller-driven boats, turn to a Mercury Marine Jet. Shallow water can mean opportunity and adventure. But it can also mean damaged props. No Props. No skegs. Impossible-to-reach places are well within your reach. A Mercury Jet outboard gets you to those hard-to-reach spots quickly and confidently, with a wide range of FourStrokes, from 25 to 80 hp, to match your needs.
Conventional TwoStroke outboard engines are not licensable in the EU anymore. An exception is the usage of these engines under certain conditions in commercial, governmental and military applications. TwoStrokes are highly valued because of their simple technology, low weight and explosive power.
