For boaters who refuse to compromise, Mercury V8 250 and 300hp Verado® outboards represent the pinnacle of superior outboard design and performance. They deliver exhilarating acceleration and top speed, with the power and reliability to make runs over long distances and choppy water. The Mercury-exclusive Advanced MidSection (AMS) and under-cowl noise management set the standard for smooth, quiet operation, for the ultimate, most satisfying on-water experience.
V8 Verado outboards generate ample torque from class-leading 4.6L displacement, making easy work of powering your boat out of the hole and on plane, while delivering instant throttle response.
Industry-leading technologies that minimize noise, vibration and harshness ensure that all Verado outboards deliver an unsurpassed boating experience that delights the senses without overpowering them. From idle to cruise to wide-open throttle, V8 Verado outboards are quieter than all other outboards in class.
Verado outboards are calibrated to deliver full performance on 87-octane fuel, with a host of efficiency-enhancing features such as a hydrodynamic gearcase, closed-loop fuel system and Advanced Range Optimization (ARO) that help extend your range on the water.
Legendary Power: Even with heavy loads or in tough conditions, V8 Verado outboards barely break a sweat. Their impressive 4.6 liters of displacement make easy work of powering boats out of the hole and up to speed.
Extended Range: Make the joy last longer. Advanced Range Optimization (ARO) calibration enables you to go farther on every outing by precisely adjusting fuel delivery for the best possible efficiency at cruise.
Smoother and Quieter: Verado engine designs virtually eliminate transmission of vibration to the boat, while acoustic engineering not only prevents harsh noises, but it also tunes the engine for an optimal, pleasant boating experience.
Corrosion Resistance: Advanced alloys. Durable coatings. Sealed electronics. Easy-to-use freshwater flush system. Verado outboards come packed with premium corrosion-preventive technology that enables them to stand up to the most demanding marine environments.
Mercury® SmartCraft® digital technologies refine the entire boating experience to ensure every day on the water reaches its full potential. From intelligent gauges and displays to advanced systems that make boat control easy, SmartCraft gives you the power to do more with your time on the water.
Verado outboards come standard with Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) controls that deliver smooth, quiet shifting and instant throttle response, with zero hesitation. With integrated SmartCraft technologies and an intuitive user interface, DTS puts you in complete command of your adventures.
Available for multi-engine, Verado-powered boats, Joystick Piloting for Outboards offers fingertip control of throttle, shift and steering so you can dock and maneuver precisely, safely and with confidence. Move sideways, diagonally or spin the boat on its own axis with total control in wind or current.
VesselView® displays transform the helm of the boat into the ultimate command center by linking together the Mercury propulsion system with compatible onboard accessories. You can monitor engine data, control SmartCraft digital technologies, view charts and sonar, and even operate onboard entertainment systems all from one intuitive touchscreen interface.
Active Trim makes boating easier and more enjoyable by automatically trimming outboard engines. It simplifies boat operation while improving engine performance and decreasing fuel costs.
Replacing an old outboard can deliver improved performance and better boat handling for a more enjoyable boating experience. V8 250 and 300hp Verado outboards are perfect for repowering your favorite boat. They deliver exceptional speeds, reliability and quiet performance, all in a lightweight, compact package.

Mercury Verado outboards are thoughtfully designed to minimize maintenance and ensure you get the most joy from your time on the water. An electronic oil sensor handles routine engine oil checks for you, automatically verifying the oil level and notifying you on a connected multi-function display. When oil is needed, the industry-exclusive access door on the top cowl takes the hassle out of the job, allowing you to top off without removing the engine cowl. Color-coded touch points inside further speed up the process to get you underway faster.
