Mercury® OptiMax® Outboards
A Direct Injection Of Performance.
Fast, tough, and fuel-efficient. For an exhilarating day on the water.
Features may include:
More than a decade of reliable Mercury® OptiMax® performance is testimony to a great design. Low-pressure Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) delivery, corrosion-resistant alloys and finishes, and rugged components keep Mercury OptiMax outboards on the water, season upon season.
Atomized fuel is injected directly into each combustion chamber, backed by a precise charge of compressed air, and the fuel / air mixture is directed toward the spark plug by a uniquely shaped piston. The result is more-complete combustion for outstanding economy and smoke-free emissions.
No outboard in its class weighs less than the Mercury® 250hp OptiMax®. That helps create amazing hole-shot acceleration, increased top speed and overall efficiency. Its compact 60-degree V6 engine delivers brawn without the bulk.
The Big Tiller.
The optional center-mounted Big Tiller offers optimal control. A longer tiller grip incorporates a convenient power trim switch, the shift lever is close at hand, and an optional digital troll control adjusts engine speed as low as 700 rpm in 10-rpm increments.
A 60-amp (756-watt) belt-driven alternator keeps batteries charged to power electronics, lights, livewells and audio equipment.
Geared to Win.
The Torque Master II gearcase, available on select 225hp and 250hp Pro XS™ outboards, is designed specifically for performance bass boats. Its stout 1.25-inch prop shaft can handle the strain of running at an elevated mounting height. Patented front water pickups keep the engine running cool regardless of engine height. A cambered skeg improves handling and drivability.
