Fun from start to finish

More than 50 years of constant innovation, refining and re-engineering are built into every MerCruiser engine. It is what we obsess about. It’s what you should never even think about. MerCruiser engines are smooth, quiet, simple to maintain and loaded with convenient features. This is so you can keep your focus on having fun. You were born to have fun on the water, and so were MerCruiser sterndrive and inboard engines. They are designed specifically for marine use rather than derived from automotive engine technology – purpose-built for unmatched performance and ease of operation. Fun follows function. All by design. 

A sunset cruise. A child’s first time on skis. Another trip to another sandy beach on another perfect day. Whatever calls you to the water, there is a MerCruiser 200 to 430hp engine built to get you there. It has never been so easy to create unforgettable moments on the water. 

MerCruiser advantages

Noise reduction

Hear your friends and family talk. Hear yourself think. Enjoy your time on the water. A MerCruiser engine is still as powerful as ever. Thanks to sound-dampening advancements, it is just not so loud about it.


High-displacement engines and multi-port fuel-injection systems maximise the performance from every drop of fuel. You will enjoy quick acceleration, instantly responsive power and total fun.

Effortless ownership

A redesigned engine access has simplified what was once a hassle, bringing all service points to a single easily reachable location, colour-coded for owner-friendly maintenance.


Through gruelling endurance test cycles – in the lab and on the water – Mercury has refined every MerCruiser engine into an unflinching workhorse, built with better alloys and superior paints that can stand up to the harshest conditions.

SmartCraft® The power to do more

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.

Digital Throttle & Shift

Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) controls deliver silky-smooth shifting and instant throttle response, with zero hesitation. Integrated controls for selecting SmartCraft technologies make boating even easier.

Active Trim

With just a push of a button, Active Trim automatically optimises trim levels, adapting on the fly to turns, having a great reaction time at the start and water conditions to ensure smooth, efficient trips.

Joystick piloting

Intuitive joystick controls provide digital anchoring at the touch of a button and 360̊ manoeuvrability in tight spaces when you need it most. In open water, the Auto Heading and Route features let you lock in your course for simplified control.


VesselView® displays transform the helm of the boat into the ultimate command centre 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.
