Optimax Pro XS 250HP and 300HP

Not Your Typical Two-Stroke

Piston upstroke. Piston downstroke. Two simple strokes that deliver a powerful advantage. Mercury's OptiMax line, the best-selling direct-injection two-stroke outboards on the market, is the culmination of years of technological innovation. From the outset our goal was to provide boaters with superior acceleration and top-end speed. All while delivering the clean, quiet, durable, and fuel-efficient qualities of a four-stroke. The results speak for themselves (very quietly).

Designed and engineered to combine the best of both worlds, OptiMax has the heart, soul, speed, and power you expect of a traditional two-stroke. But OptiMax's proprietary two-stage injection system creates a remarkably concise combustion cycle - giving you the fuel conservation and lower emissions of a four-stroke. A win/win, win/win any way you shake it.

Superior Speed and Performance

OptiMax consistently ranks first among direct-injection engines in holeshot, mid-range acceleration, and top-end speed. That winning consistent performance and unmatched throttle response is due to our Two-Stage Direct Injection System, which provides a constant supply of atomized fuel and air to make the most efficient use of fuel. Additionally, its outstanding power-to-weight ratio results in increased speed and holeshot, making OptiMax a superior engine for any type of boat.

fuel efficiency

Mercury pioneered direct fuel-injection technology with OptiMax. Ever since, these engines have set the bar to be the industry's low-emission, high-performance leader. But it doesn't end there. OptiMax is so fuel-efficient that it also beats most four-strokes. Thanks to its exclusive two-stage, direct-injection technology, it delivers the ultimate in efficiency, squeezing more miles and performance from every drop of fuel.

best deal going

OptiMax provides exactly what you need - from best-in-class fuel economy to unbeatable performance and leading corrosion resistance. The OptiMax lineup's durability, reliability, and advanced direct-injected system make it a spectacular value. Dig deeper into the advantages of Mercury's OptiMax engines.

Verado 250HP and 300HP

the making of a masterwork

When Mercury set out to engineer the most perfect outboard engine imaginable, we made sure to question everything - every number, every scenario, every bit of minutia - ensuring no detail was taken for granted, no stone left unturned. The result was Verado, the world's only supercharged production outboard engine.

total package

Verado is a masterwork of engineering that epitomizes reliability, power, and performance. Created to deliver the smoothest, most intuitive, most finely tuned ride on water, Verado is known as the world's most sophisticated propulsion system. Because it really does offer the best of all worlds.

Superiority Built from Within

No engine can match Verado for corrosion protection. With three times more stainless steel components than competitive outboards, Verado is more resistant to salt and corrosion than any other outboard on the market.

Wind in Your Face, Legend at Your Back

Hit the throttle and Verado lays down the law, pulling away from pretenders with eye-opening response and face-numbing acceleration. From the word 'go', Verado boasts of its exclusive supercharged system, delivering the torque that big boats need to get up on plane and tackle big water. No outboard delivers quicker throttle response, better automotive-like control, easier steering, smoother shifting, or quieter operation than Verado.

Fuel Economy Without Compromise

When it comes to fuel economy, we rewrote the rules. The truth is, every part was designed to make Verado the most fuel-efficient engine ever. And that it is. Verado offers class-leading fuel-efficiency ...without compromising a single lick of power.
