Mercury’s V-6 four-stroke outboards

Mercury Marine decided that its 75- to 150-horsepower FourStroke outboards were so successful, the company has debuted a line of bigger engines with the same features.

Earlier this year, Mercury introduced V-6 FourStroke engines in 175-, 200- and 225-horsepower models, explaining the engines are lighter, more compact and fuel-efficient.

Built on the 3.4-leter V-6 platform, the new engines offer plenty of options as far as mechanical or digital controls and hydraulic or power steering.

The 200-horsepower model weighs only 475 pounds, the lightest weight in its class by more than 10 pounds, and Mercury said it provides more torque than other outboards of similar sizes at cruising speeds, while providing fuel efficiency at up to 15 percent better than its competitors.

The new engines will be offered in black, three shades of whites, and four accent-color panels.
