Choice of Champions.

Choice of Champions.

Pro XS is the best-selling tournament fishing outboard in the world, and has powered more competitive anglers to victory than any other engine. Run with the same confidence professional tournament anglers have – trust Pro XS.

Flo-Torq SSR HD.

Flo-Torq SSR HD.

Introducing the Flo-Torq Soft Shift Rubber (SSR) HD, the next generation of Mercury Propellers’ Flo-Torq Hub Systems. The Flo-Torq SSR HD is the quietest and smoothest shifting propeller hub system in the market for high horse-powered outboards. In fact, the Flo-Torq SSR HD delivers a 10-19% shift clunk improvement vs. other noise reduction rubber hub systems and a 25%+ improvement vs. solid hub designs.

The Quietest and Smoothest Hub System Ever Created

During shifting events such as when using JoyStick Piloting for Outboards and/or shifting into gear, the Flo-Torq SSR HD rotates both port and starboard - eliminating shift clunk and vibration for quiet and smooth shifting. Once under load, the hub will engage the propeller inner hub, resulting in a solid hub with the ability to transfer the power of 

Flo-Torq SSD HD can be used on all high-horsepower applications such as center console, bass, multispecies, bay/flats, deck, tritoon/pontoon, RIB, and sport boats. It can be used with Mercury propellers Bravo I, Enertia, Enertia ECO, Fury, Revolution 4, Mirage Plus, and Tempest Plus.

Powerful and Efficient.

Powerful and Efficient.

A 250hp Pro XS gets up to 14% better fuel economy than a 250hp high-output outboard offered by our competitor. Our fuel-injection system boasts the most complete fuel and air atomization, while specialized pistons improve fuel combustion. More power. Less fuel consumed. Fewer emissions produced. Perfect.

Speed / Performance.

Speed / Performance.

Custom exhaust tuners and high-performance cylinder heads maximize power, torque and overall performance for spectacular acceleration and top speed.

Geared to Win.

Geared to Win.

The Torque Master II gearcase, available on select 225hp and 250hp Pro XS™ outboards, is designed specifically for performance bass boats. Its stout 1.25-inch prop shaft can handle the strain of running at an elevated mounting height. Patented front water pickups keep the engine running cool regardless of engine height. A cambered skeg improves handling and drivability.

Fury Prop.

Fury Prop.

Quick and fast, the Fury® propeller from Mercury improves hole shot on tournament bass rigs by 12% and top speed by 1.4 mph compared to the Mercury Tempest® Plus propeller. Fury is an ideal match for outboards 200hp and up.

Repower Financing.

Repower Financing.

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.
