Mercury launches milestone engine

ADVERTISEMENT

Wisconsin-based Mercury Marine has produced its 75,000th Verado L6 outboard engine. The Verado six-cylinder was first launched in 2005 and covered 200 to 275hp. The line now includes up to 300hp outboard engines. Mercury Marine has manufactured more than 15 million engines since the company was founded in 1939.

The Verado platform is versatile across a variety of applications, from multi-engine offshore boats to single-engine freshwater fishing boats to premium pontoons.

For the saltwater tournament angler or sport boater, the supercharged four-stroke offers extra hole shot, powerful mid-range punch and strong top speeds. It also has digital throttle and shift (DTS) and electro-hydraulic power steering, both of which provide automotive-like precision handling.
