Adventures with Mercury
To aid their adventures Mercury provided Sailing Nomad Citizen with a reliable engine of the latest generation. Additionally with Mercury’s worldwide support, they can expect top of the line service wherever they go.
Sailing Nomad Citizen specifically chose the F20 MLH EFI portable outboard, for its many advantages. Its electronic fuel injection system allows for quick start-up, and immediate and smooth acceleration. The multifunction tiller is ergonomic, ambidextrous and easily adjustable. The twin-cylinder block (333 cc), produces exceptional torque and optimal acceleration. It’s light (45 kg) offering better portability and increased performance. More power, less weight for better lift and higher top speed. Finally, its design, inspired by the strongest engines (V6 and V8) for which Mercury is renowned today.
