Mercury's V12 600 horsepower Verado
MERCURY Marine has released its new 7.6 litre V12 600 horsepower Verado outboard engine, its most powerful
outboard, designed for a wide variety of applications.
“With boats continuing to grow bigger and performance expectations continuing to rise, boaters have been asking for
a better, more capable high horsepower solution to meet their needs. The V12 Verado outboard is Mercury’s answer,” Mercury Marine president Chris Drees said.
“Using our advanced engineering and design capabilities, we completely redefined outboard performance. The V12
Verado outboard delivers boaters unrivalled freedom, luxury and power to pursue their passions on the water. This is
a remarkable engine that will change the future of boating.”
Ground-breaking product innovations include the following:
- The world’s first V12 outboard, the 600hp Verado engine features a naturally aspirated, largedisplacement, quadcam powerhead that generates impressive torque to get heavy boats out of the hole and on plane quickly, and to accelerate up to rated speed rapidly.
- The industry’s first twospeed automatic transmission for an outboard optimises engine rpm according to workload, facilitating powerful acceleration and highly efficient performance at cruise.
- The industry’s first steerable gearcase on an outboard pivots independently underwater while the engine’s powerhead remains in a spacesaving fixed position. This provides more room for multiengine configurations and a wider steering angle for agile handling. With help from contrarotating propellers, it also has better “bite” in the water for docking and other closequarters manoeuvring.
Several enhanced Mercury technologies work in conjunction to enable the V12 Verado outboard to deliver exceptional fuel economy and range.
