Circumnavigating Australia with Mercury 150 FourStrokes.

Circumnavigating Australia with Mercury 150 FourStrokes.

Mark Ratchford is calling it his ‘huge adventure’ which might be an understatement - considering he spent four months on a solo 16,500 km (10,000-mile) circumnavigation of Australia in a 6.5 metre (21-foot) fishing boat powered by twin Mercury 150 FourStroke outboards.

Performance, Durability, Efficiency.

Performance, Durability, Efficiency.

Making 150 horsepower is easy for this 3.0-liter, four-cylinder, single-overhead-cam engine. Its generous displacement lets it churn out power without breaking a sweat. You get exceptional durability and long-term peace of mind.

Compact and Versatile.

Compact and Versatile.

It’s the lightest 150hp four-stroke outboard on the market. Smart design makes the 150hp Mercury FourStroke nearly 20 pounds lighter than its closest four-stroke competitor, and less than a battery weight heavier than a two-stroke. Potential uses for this engine are endless, including bay boats, boats with poling platforms and pontoons with swim platforms.
