A Smooth Operator

Built tough to withstand the rigors of saltwater operation, no outboard in the class offers more displacement. Great for deck, inflatable rigid hull, inshore fishing, multi-species fishing, offshore fishing, and runabout cuddy boats and tritoons.

The smooth, refined power of a V-8 4.6-liter powerhead delivers exhilarating acceleration and top speed to run offshore with confidence, while its generous displacement and robust design provide uncompromising durability and reliability. The Mercury-exclusive Advanced MidSection (AMS) and under-cowl noise management set the standard for smooth, quiet marine propulsion. These exciting new V-8 Verado outboards are wrapped in crisp, bold styling that makes an unmistakable statement on any transom.
