Verado 250-300 hp
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.
The rugged Advanced MidSection (AMS) mounting system cradles the powerhead to isolate vibration, while expert tuning minimizes engine noise and optimizes the sound quality for a more enjoyable boating experience.
Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) controls deliver smooth, quiet shifting and instant throttle response, with zero hesitation. You can further enhance handling and performance with available Electric Steering for multi-engine boats. Whisper-quiet and ultra-responsive, the system consumes less than half the electrical power as electro-hydraulic steering. (Single-engine Electric Steering coming later this year.)
Joystick Piloting for Outboards
The industry’s most advanced Joystick Piloting system makes maneuvering in tight spaces as simple as nudging the joystick whichever direction you want the boat to go. The SmartCraft system takes it from there, providing unparalleled low-speed control for easy, confident docking.
Adaptive Speed Control
The Adaptive Speed Control (ASC) feature lets you maintain engine rpm despite changes in load or conditions. Climbing large swells is easier. Cruising at low speeds is smoother. Carving out tight turns is effortless. You just point the bow toward your destination, and Verado takes it from there.
Advanced Sound Control
Choose the sound that moves you with the industry-exclusive Advanced Sound Control feature. It lets you toggle between a whisper-quiet exhaust tone or a throatier growl at startup and idle, for those times you truly want to hear the horsepower.
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.
Quiet & Smooth
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.
Exceptional Fuel Economy
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.
12-15% More Torque
