PRO FOURSTROKE 250 - 300 HP

 

If you're looking for a more advanced, refined, and enjoyable ride from a performance engine, you'll love the Mercury 250 and 300 hp Pro FourStroke. Pleasingly quiet and virtually vibration-free, they rocket out of the hole and provide unequalled mid-range acceleration and top speed - with style, comfort, and state-of-the-art technology.

Performance

Supercharged Fishing

The 250 and 300 Pro FourStroke engines are engineered to deliver the enhanced performance (acceleration and top speed) of other Mercury Pro Series engines - including the 250hp OptiMax Pro XS, the most successful and most popular engine on the professional bass circuit. With Verado's supercharged technology delivering unbelievable torque, these FourStrokes provide astounding holeshots and punchy mid-range acceleration, all with outstanding fuel economy.

Shaft Length Options

Available in 20" and 25" shaft lengths, the 20" shaft option is perfect for 21-foot-plus ski boats, while the 25" option is perfect for anyone wanting that little bit more out of their boat!

Experience
Fight the Fish, Not the Wheel

Unlike standard hydraulic steering systems, the 250 and 300 hp Pro FourStrokes come with true automotive-like power steering, which eliminates the steering torque you can experience with other outboard engines. That lack of steering torque means less driver fatigue, allowing you to save your energy for finishing and not fighting the wheel.

Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS)

Both the 250 and 300 hp Pro FourStrokes feature Mercury’s exclusive DTS, which provides an unparalleled level of control and precision. This digital technology also enables Mercury to offer the optional DTS Hot Foot, which allows you to transfer throttle control between a foot pedal and the DTS panel control with a simple push of a button – great for keeping both hands on the wheel during high-speed runs.

Reliability
Gearcase Durability

Mercury Marine's commitment to testing and continual product improvement never stops. The most recent examples of this commitment are found in the new range of Verado gearcase offerings.

The new 5.44-inch gearcase - with strengthened internal components - is a larger, more robust version of the current 4.8-inch gearcase. The 5.44-inch gearcase is best suited for saltwater offshore boats that are run more aggressively, or in rough seas where the propellers frequently ventilate. Additionally, 23-foot or larger single-engine boats that weigh more than 5,000 pounds fully loaded will significantly benefit from this larger gearcase.

Lastly, the current 4.8-inch Verado gearcase continues to be the best choice for single-engine boat applications – including bass, freshwater multispecies, inshore flats and bay and pontoon boats. The 4.8" gearcase has a smaller hydrodynamic profile to ensure top performance on these boat types. This gearcase is available in right-hand rotation exclusively on a 20-inch and 25-inch 225 hp Verados as well as the new 250 and 300 Pro FourStrokes

Run With Confidence

Mercury backs the 250 hp and 300 hp Pro FourStroke with its standard three-year limited factory-backed warranty. With the protection of the Mercury warranty, you can hit the water with confidence that you're fishing the best-made engine on the water.

OPTIMAX PRO XS 115 - 250 HP

 

In a class all its own.

For people who demand speed and acceleration from their outboards, the OptiMax Pro XS is the only choice. Mercury engineers leveraged the Mercury Racing heritage to develop this family of high-performance Direct Injected outboards. The result is an outboard family that blows away the competition when it comes to power, durability, performance and fuel efficiency.

Nothing on the water today is faster or more proven than the OptiMax Pro XS. And we’re proud to introduce the newest addition to this family, the 150hp OptiMax Pro XS. In head-to-head tests, the 150 Pro XS outran the competition by almost 5 MPH while delivering 15% better fuel economy! The 150 Pro XS is a perfect fit for those anglers looking to increase the performance of their 18-foot fishing boats.

With remarkable acceleration and awesome performance, the Optimax Pro XS lineup has created a class of its own. Nothing else is faster or more proven than the OptiMax Pro XS.

PERFORMANCE
Powerful and Smooth

The OptiMax Two-Stage Direct Injection System produces consistent performance and unmatched throttle response by providing a constant supply of atomized fuel and air. The Pro XS also offers a Higher Wide-Open-Throttle RPM Operating Range, giving you more propeller options to maximize the performance of your boat. Visit the mercurymarine.com Prop Selector to choose the prop that’s right for you.

Light and Fast

The compact 60-degree V6 block combines the smooth-running characteristics of a powerful V6 engine with a slim, lightweight design, making it a great choice for almost any type of boat. It consistently outperforms other DI engines in holeshot, mid-range acceleration and top-end speed.

Run with the Pros

The tournament-tested Mercury ProXS lineup is the choice of thousands of performance-minded anglers. Only OptiMax ProXS engines feature durable and responsive Carbon Fiber Reeds to control airflow into the engine crankcase, while dome-Shaped Piston Heads direct the fuel-and-air charge to the spark plug more efficiently. This results in amazing power, outstanding durability, and excellent running quality. In head-to-head tests, the 150hp ProXS outran the competition by almost 5 MPH – while delivering 15% better fuel economy. In addition, we outfitted the 250hp ProXS with Solid Billet Aluminum Mounts to keep the engine from turning or twisting under high torque (20-inch models only).

Reliability
Long-Lasting Stainless

OptiMax is built with more stainless steel and corrosion-resistant components, which translates to saltwater durability, longer intervals between maintenance, and lower cost of ownership. In addition, our lower-pressure direct-injection system also provides superior component durability and longevity.

Fuel Efficiency
Ultimate Efficiency

The innovative OptiMax Direct Injected system delivers the ultimate in efficiency, squeezing more miles and performance from every drop of fuel. The unique shapes of the OptiMax-exclusive Dome-Shaped Pistons and combustion chambers enhance fuel economy and lower emissions by efficiently directing the fuel/air charge to the spark plug. The OptiMax Air Compressor provides a steady charge of cooled air for maximum combustion efficiency.
