Bays and Center Consoles
Skip to content



Mercury outboards deliver exactly what your customers need for powering midsize center-console boats, including popular bay boats. Our engines are light enough to draft in shallow water but pack the power to charge across heavier seas. When you outfit your customers’ center-consoles with Mercury outboards, you’re providing them with the ultimate combination of agile handling, quiet operation and reliability for wherever their adventures take them.


Under the cowling of every Mercury 115 to 150hp outboard is a large-displacement powerhead that provides ample torque for explosive acceleration. If your customer demands even more leverage and control for powering a heavy center-console boat, select engine models are available with the overbuilt Command Thrust gearcase and both left- and right-hand rotation for multi-engine configurations. These outboards are as sporty as they are rugged thanks to the pressurized Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system, which delivers reliable starting, instant throttle response and excellent fuel economy.

175 to 300hp Verado®, Pro XS® and FourStroke

With the lightest engines and highest displacement in nearly every power node, Mercury V8 and V6 outboards pack more performance into every ounce than any other engines in their class. All that power is delivered with minimal fuel consumption thanks to features such as Advanced Range Optimization, which automatically adjusts fuel delivery for superior efficiency at cruise. Painstaking efforts were also made to minimize noise, vibration and harshness for a better experience on the water – whether the goal is to avoid spooking fish or to enjoy a casual conversation with friends.

350 and 400hp Verado®

For center-console customers who demand maximum horsepower, the 350 or 400hp Verado outboard can deliver superior performance from its supercharged inline 6-cylinder powerhead. The Verado outboard is as smooth as it is powerful thanks to Digital Throttle & Shift controls and electro-hydraulic power steering. The driving experience is further enhanced by class-leading sound-and-vibration reduction and features such as the Mercury-exclusive Advanced MidSection, which moves engine mounts aft and outward, virtually eliminating vibration from the engine being transmitted to the boat.

VesselView Link

VesselView Link pushes boat and engine data into linked Simrad or Lowrance displays so boaters can do it all without needing to add a screen to an already crowded dash. They can monitor rpm, speed, fuel flow and efficiency, temperature, trim, and more while keeping their eyes on the fish or on the trail.
