Go anywhere with portable power.

Taking the fun with you is one of the great advantages of owning an inflatable boat or small fishing boat. Mercury offers a complete line of extremely light portable FourStroke outboards, with the widest range of models to choose from. So wherever you and your boat go, your Mercury portable FourStroke can also go. The entire line makes operation and portability easy with smart, simple features. Plus, clean, quiet, fuel-efficient FourStroke performance makes them the obvious power of choice.

Mercury’s 15 and 20 FourStrokes have dual water pickups. So even if you end up in the shallows, your engine will keep its cool and not overheat. The multi-function tiller comes standard with shift, steering, throttle, throttle friction, trim, and stop controls.

Key 15hp Features

Large Displacement Design

At 21.4 cubic inches, this engine delivers the strong low-end torque needed to get the hull up on plane, with quicker throttle response and acceleration.

Kick it up a notch.
  • The 15hp Mercury ProKicker features a compact, integrated power tilt and a heavy-duty transom bracket for maximum strength, speed and durability.
  • Additionally the 15hp ProKicker sports an updated graphics package designed to compliment the OptiMax Pro XS and Verado outboards. Installed next to a Pro XS or Verado outboard, the improved ProKicker graphics will make your rig stand out from the rest of the pack.
  • Patented Centering Straps. Holds the engine straight without additional hold-downs when running in the rough conditions or trailering (Standard on Tiller Pro Kickers).
Fingertip Control

Mercury FourStrokes are designed with a boat load of user-friendly features, such as our multifunction tiller handle. This tiller handle gives you easy one-handed operation of shifting, stopping, throttle, throttle friction, and tilt. More control equals better maneuverability.

Wishbone Mounts

Mercury’s “wishbone” style motor mount system cradles the powerhead and absorbs the torsional rotation of the crankshaft. By isolating and reducing the vibration transmission to your boat, it provides a smooth driving experience.

Long-Lasting Gearcase

Mercury’s 15hp FourStrokes have dual water pickups. So even if you end up in the shallows, your engine will keep its cool and not overheat.
