Mercury Marine has just made tidal waves in the marine industry with the release of the Mercury Verado 600 horsepower outboards. With cutting edge technologies never before seen in the outboard market.
A V-12 naturally aspirated block made in the USA creates a quiet force on the back of the larger outboard-driven boats that are flooding the market.
V12 Power and Performance
Mercury’s first V12 powerhead delivers superior horsepower and performance in a surprisingly compact footprint. Their new steerable gearcase and simple, streamlined rigging design allows the engine to mount on 27-inch centers, so boaters can fit as much power as they need on the transom.
- Automatic Two-Speed Transmission
The two-speed transmission makes easy work of transferring 600hp to the gearcase. It doles out maximum torque and acceleration in first gear then silently shifts to second for efficient cruising and thrilling top speed. No shift clunk. No limitations. Only smooth, impressive power.
- Independent, Steerable Gearcase
Electro-hydraulic controls allow the steerable gearcase to react instantly to driver commands. With no movement from the engine above water, there are no distractions – only precise maneuverability around docks and smooth, effortless handling in open water.
- Contra-Rotating Propellers
A new series of dual props were expertly crafted to harness the full potential of 600hp. Designed to run in a contra-rotating configuration, the new propellers power the boat on plane swiftly and efficiently, while delivering exceptional handling and fuel economy at midrange speeds.
- Exceptionally Smooth & Quiet
A more rugged, more refined next-generation Advanced MidSection (AMS) mounting system cradles the powerhead to isolate noise and vibration, while careful tuning dampens induction sounds and nearly eliminates injection noise. 600hp never sounded so quiet.
Every aspect of the engine has been designed with the user in mind. The new throttle systems, innovative easy access “hood” that opens for maintenance while still in the water, steerable gearcase, and much more.
