In 1939 a man named Carl Kiekhaefer changed the meaning – and the future – of marine power by refusing to settle for “good enough.” For him, speeds had to be faster. Range had to be greater. Reliability had to be assured. With an iron will, a brilliant mind and a refusal to accept defeat, he built a company that would come to define marine performance. A company that would

OUR ENGINES AREN’T JUST TESTED. THEY’RE PROVEN.

The Home of Performance

Precision Punishment

We test our products in four key locations, all of which were chosen for maximum effectiveness: at our legendary Lake X facility in central Florida, where, since 1957, engines have had to endure a power-source boot camp before wearing the Mercury name; at our Florida saltwater facility; at our state-of-the-art Indoor Testing Center; and in the real world – where it matters most.

Our Indoor Testing Center is the most advanced testing facility of its kind. It allows us to create punishing conditions that far exceed those experienced by an engine during normal use and to measure the effects of that punishment right down to the micron.

contribute to its per formance. Our award-winning High Pressure Lost Foam Foundry is one of only two in the world. This unique casting process enables Mercury to create an engine that includes fewer added-on parts, resulting in unmatched durability and reliability. In fact, our castings are so precise, we produce them for other industry leaders such as John Deere® and Harley-Davidson.®

In this unique two-stage system, fuel is discharged into a holding cavity before a burst of pressurized air shoots it into the cylinder. This process results in the finest atomization (the dispersal of fuel into a fine mist) of any system available. The finer the mist of fuel, the longer, more complete and more consistent the burn when ignited. This results in smoother, more consistent running quality, combined with fewer emissions and better fuel economy.

“I’ve been running OptiMax for years, and it’s one awesome engine! And the new 115 hp OptiMax is the perfect mid-range power choice for today’s angler. It’s quiet, smooth, powerful, and delivers incredible fuel economy. You want my opinion, I’d say get on the fishing edge ... with the new 115 OptiMax!”

SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE: UNDER THE COWL

OptiMax features a 60-degree V6 configuration which provides a compact block design with impressive, high power output.

Dual water pickups are designed to maximize engine performance and deliver added reliability by providing added protection against overheat damage, especially when navigating shallow or weed-filled waters.

OptiMax engines employ the Motorola®-designed PCM control module. This module is built exclusively for Mercury® engine-management capabilities and is the heart of Mercury® SmartCraft® technology. OptiMax also features the exclusive Engine Guardian System, which monitors engine functions for potential problems.

All Mercury OptiMax engines use an exclusive XK-360 low-copper aluminum alloy, as well as a multistep painting process and stainless steel to provide unparalleled corrosion resistance above and below the waterline.

The OptiMax 3.0L Cooling System features thermostats and thermostat housings designed to allow debris to flow through – so the engine remains at optimum temperatures for efficiency and reliability.

All OptiMax models feature a self-contained, automotive-style 60-amp/756-watt belt-driven alternator for more output, increased durability and easier servicing. This alternator is operational only as the battery requires a charge, resulting in reduced heat and increased alternator life.

1.5L OPTIMAX: UNDER THE COWL

115 - 90 - 75

Now the world’s best direct fuel-injected outboard

PROVEN THROUGH TESTING

At the foundation of every new 1.5L OptiMax outboard is a block that was designed specifically for it. Mercury engineers, in conjunction with our own world-class High Pressure Lost Foam Foundry, worked from the ground up to produce a series of engine blocks with unmatched accuracy, strength and durability. These blocks have spent the last three years being tested under harsh conditions.

To be the leader in DFI technology, you have to prove yourself over and over again. That’s why we’ve invented ways to test and retest DFI engines that the competition hasn’t even thought of. Cold water, warm water, cold air, hot air, saltwater, freshwater, down South, up North, out West, overseas – anywhere there’s water. Chances are we’ve tested a DFI engine there. This extensive testing has led to breakthroughs in marine engine technology. Like the cooling system on the 1.5L OptiMax outboard, which has been specially designed to keep the engine running at an optimal temperature at all times, free of debris and blockage. The result is an engine that runs at optimal efficiency for fuel and spark plug life and, better still, an engine that lasts for years.

That’s why we’ve outfitted them with a host of innovative components proven to withstand the rigors of everyday use. Things like our near-net-forged gears – the toughest, most durable gears in the industry; a specially designed air compressor for maximum durability and efficiency; a composite stainless steel driveshaft with a hardened spline for greater power and uncompromised durability; and starter motors built to last for over 30 years.

For the 1.5L OptiMax, Mercury spent hundreds of hours designing, testing and refining specialized components that would consistently deliver those two key attributes. To help provide smooth, quiet running, Mercury engineers created the air bypass silencer. This exclusive feature dramatically reduces engine noise and is nearly as quiet as a four-stroke at idle. The torsional damper is another exclusive Mercury innovation that reduces engine vibration by nearly 60 percent. The result is a smoother-running engine that lasts longer with outstanding reliability. FOR MORE INFO, VISIT

The V-shaped hull of a traditional boat slices through the water, allowing the engine to work in fairly undisturbed water. But the twin tubes of a pontoon force turbulent water toward the engine. BigFoot uses a larger gearcase and propeller to overcome the challenge of more turbulent water and to provide better handling, maneuverability and performance.

CLASSIC CARBURETED: UNDER THE COWL • Dual Water Pickups are designed to maximize engine performance and deliver added reliability by providing added protection against overheat damage, especially when navigating shallow or weed-filled waters. • Single-Point Oil Injection, featured on 40 hp models and larger, automatically mixes oil and gas for simple, dependable, hands-free operation and mixes oil and fuel at the correct ratio based on engine speed. • Shallow-Water Drive: Tiller handle models (8 – 15 hp) are equipped with a shallow-water drive feature that can be engaged when operating in shallow water, and a “troll” feature tilts the engine to an outward position for excellent trim range and convenience.

TOUGH. DEPENDABLE. LEGENDARY. Horsepower: 200 – 150 – 125 – 115 – 90 – 75 – 60 – 50 – 40 – 25 – 15 – 9.9 – 8 – 5 – 4 – 3.3 – 2.5

Mercury® Classic Carbureted outboards have been the trusted companions for countless anglers over the decades, and it’s easy to see why. They’re tough, dependable engines that offer sure starts, uncompromising power and reliable performance. And they’re an economical choice for those who want big power in a proven package. With horsepower ranging from 200 down to our portable 2.5, there’s a model perfectly suited to any application – whether you’re cruising big water in search of marlin or heading across the lake on a quest for crappie. Every outboard shares the no-nonsense qualities of a true workhorse, just as all these models have for decades.

31

STRONGER Mercury 150 – 200 hp carbureted outboards are backed by a NEW, two-year factory-backed limited warranty, offering unmatched protection and peace of mind.

LONGER Every Mercury engine is backed by the industry’s only three-year corrosion failure limited warranty, further proving we don’t just stand behind our power, we stand behind it for the duration.

PROVEN For 65 years Mercury carbureted outboards have been pushed, tested and refined with one goal in mind – deliver the utmost in power, performance and reliability. The result is Mercury engines have won more races, dominated more tournament trails and set more records than any other marine manufacturer … in fact, a Mercury engine was the first six-cylinder outboard to break the 100 mph speed barrier back in 1957!

• Exclusive One-Hand Control Tiller Handle available on smaller-horsepower models controls steering, shift, throttle, throttle friction, stop, and trim/tilt for convenient working, fishing, trolling, and beaching. Steering copilot device is easily adjusted by hand. • Loop-Charged Induction is offered on most Mercury carbureted models. In this system, incoming fuel and air enter the cylinder through three intake ports. The intake ports are angled toward each other so that incoming fuel charges converge above the piston, causing a “looping” or “swirling” of the fuel in the cylinder. This looping of the fuel mixture more completely fills the cylinder, and less fresh fuel charge is required to expel used gases. The result is a combustion system that improves overall fuel economy and delivers superior power across the entire rpm range. • 40-Amp Alternator: Mercury carbureted V6 models offer the only 40-amp/564-watt alternator system in the industry, delivering boaters enough power to run a host of onboard electronics and accessories.

BUT IT DOESN’T STOP THERE The advantages of powering with Mercury go well beyond those found under the cowl. Consider these performance-enhancing additions:

Mercury Oils: Mercury 2-Cycle Outboard Oils have been specifically formulated to provide superior lubrication, as well as protection against rust and corrosion. Mercury Premium 2-Cycle Outboard Oil is engineered for low- to mid-horsepower applications, while Mercury Premium Plus 2-Cycle Outboard Oil provides superior protection for high-horsepower applications.

Mercury Vengeance® is the best multipurpose three-blade prop available. It features outstanding durability with great overall performance for almost any 25 – 225 horsepower outboard application.

®

Mercury Jet Outboards: By using a powerful jet to draw water past a heavy-duty impeller and then forcing that water out at high velocity, these rugged, lightweight engines offer all of the performance you crave, but without the propeller. Available in 80, 65, 40, and 20 horsepower configurations.
