“She Fishes” Chloe Laurence picks Mercury FourStroke
Chloe Laurence is having a great time – breaking down stereotypes while doing what she loves.
A talented fisher with numerous tournament wins to her name, Chloe is helping to eliminate the myth that fishing’s just “a bloke’s sport” while encouraging everyone to try throwing in a line.
With a focus on inshore sports fishing as well as game fishing for marlin and tuna, Chloe spends as much time as she can out on the water – propelled by a brand new Mercury 150 FourStroke.

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.
With Mercury Repower Financing, you can easily power up everything from fishing boats, to runabouts, to cruisers with flexible financing on the engine. You can also choose to finance rigging, gauges, controls and even labor. Mercury Repower Financing offers low rates and low monthly payments to fit a boater’s budget.
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.
6,000 hours in the Bahamas
Since its introduction to Mercury’s line of FourStroke engines, the 150hp has proved a valuable player in saltwater markets. Recently, Bernard Sweeting, an angler from Spanish Wells, St. George’s Cay, Bahamas, reported that his 150hp FourStroke reached more than 6,000 hours in commercial application, an impressive feat given the rough conditions that accompany commercial outboard use.
Propped to Perform.
The Mercury Enertia® propeller is the perfect complement to the 150 FourStroke. Designed specifically for large four-stroke outboards with a revolutionary low-diameter/high-blade-area design and cast with the Mercury proprietary X7® propeller alloy, Enertia delivers phenomenal acceleration, top speed and durability.
Easy to Maintain.
Rather do it yourself? The no-spill oil-change system, an easy-access fuel filter and a lifetime maintenance-free valve train make the Mercury 150 FourStroke the easiest-to-maintain 150hp four-stroke on the market. Scan a QR code under the cowl to link with step-by-step video demonstrations.
Perfect for Repower.
The compact, lightweight design of the Mercury® 150hp FourStroke engine fits most transoms, including those with narrow engine wells and tight motor spacing. Rig it with mechanical or hydraulic steering, mechanical control and cable systems, and a full complement of analog or SmartCraft® gauges.
