Mercury Verado: The world’s most refined outboard
The new V-8 300hp Verado out-accelerates and outpaces the leading competitor
INTUITIVE, INNOVATIVE FEATURES
With Adaptive Speed Control, the new Mercury V-8 Verado maintains a desired rpm level regardless of changes in load or condition (such as rough conditions, tight turns, tow sports, and lower speeds on plane) without requiring frequent adjustments to the throttle lever position a first for the outboard industry. The result is increased throttle response and a “sportier” feel for the driver.
Class-leading high-capacity, high-power alternator delivers 20 amps net at idle and 115 amps total at wide open throttle – perfect for boats with multiple electronic devices.
Idle Charge battery-management : When battery voltage is reduced, the engine will automatically increase idle rpm to boost alternator output and recharge low batteries to the proper level, keeping operators from draining their batteries while trolling and operating electronic devices.
GREATER DISPLACEMENT AND MORE TORQUE IN A LIGHTWEIGHT, COMPACT PACKAGE
The new 250hp and 300hp Verado outboards boast class-leading 4.6L displacement, resulting in 12-15% more torque than the leading competitor at cruising speed.
Mercury’s proprietary Transient Spark technology, which boosts torque by as much as 7% during hole shot by optimising spark timing and fueling, gets boats on plane quickly.
. . . all that displacement and power are delivered in a compact package with 26-inch mounting centers, perfect for repower and multi-engine options.
SUPERIOR FUEL ECONOMY
Advanced Range Optimisation improves cruise-speed fuel efficiency by automatically adjusting fuel delivery so seamlessly the operator won’t feel or hear it.
Patented closed-loop fuel control uses a wide-range oxygen sensor to optimise air-to-fuel ratio during all operating conditions, an advantage over competing engines that employ narrow-range sensors.
VERADO’S WORLD-CLASS SMOOTH AND QUIET OPERATION
The new V-8 250-300hp Verado outboard motors establish a new industry benchmark for smooth and quiet operation. Compared to the leading 300hp four-stroke competitor, the new Verado engines are 20% quieter at idle and 35% quieter at cruise and wide-open throttle, with an incredible 66% less vibration at the helm
MERCURY JOYSTICK PILOTING
Mercury Verado outboards in multi-engine configurations with Mercury Joystick Piloting offer fingertip control of throttle, shift and steering, so you can dock precisely, safely and with confidence. Move sideways, diagonally or spin the boat on its own axis with total control in wind or current. Joystick Piloting for Verado outboards is part of a complete SmartCraft® package that includes SmartCraft® Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS), Skyhook® Digital Anchor, Integrated AutoPilot, and VesselView® displays.
COLOUR OPTIONS PROVIDE ENGINE PERSONALISATION
Mercury’s Cold Fusion White and traditional Phantom Black are available on the new 250hp and 300hp Verado outboards.
EXPANDED COLOUR CHOICES
For ultimate personalisation, four colours of factory-painted accent panels are available as kits. The panels are made of thin and durable polycarbonate that adhere firmly and provide colour harmonisation.
