Proven technology, rock-solid reliability and an unbeatable combination of performance and fuel efficiency.
Corrosion Protection: The freshwater closed-cooling system (standard) dramatically limits potential corrosion. In fact, Mercury® is so bullish about the anti-corrosion technology built into these engines, we offer a standard four-year limited corrosion warranty in addition to the three-year limited factory-backed warranty.
Joystick Piloting for Inboards: The only joystick piloting system that’s compatible with gasoline or diesel inboard and tow sport engines. The only joystick piloting system for single-inboard boats. Many features available to make your tow sport adventures even more amazing.
Power & Performance: High-displacement volume and premium MPI fuel injection combine to deliver outstanding acceleration, instant planing and smooth performance throughout the rpm band. Mercury® SmartCraft® Digital Throttle & Shift is standard, providing precision throttle response and effortless steering.
Durable & Reliable: Mercury’s Engine Guardian continually monitors critical sensors for any sign of a problem and immediately takes action, while the water-cooled Cool Fuel delivery system on the 8.2L Inboard engine prevents vapor lock. Rugged construction, including stainless-steel exhaust, ensures long-term, hassle-free operation.
