Verado 600hp
7.6L V12

Furthering the legacy of the Verado® engine family, Mercury reimagined outboard performance to deliver the ultimate luxury boating experience. With the unwavering strength of a V12 powerhead, the 600hp Verado outboard delivers extraordinary range and performance to take your boating adventures to new destinations. Revolutionary advancements in handling and control are made possible by the outboard segment’s first steerable gearcase and an industry-first two-speed transmission. Quiet, smooth and refined, this is the engine that elevates the standards of premium design and engineering.  

Intuitive, Innovative Features
V12 Power and Performance

The outboard segment’s first V12 powerhead delivers superior horsepower and performance in a surprisingly compact footprint. Combined with the steerable gearcase and simple, streamlined rigging, the design allows the engine to mount on 27-inch centers, so boaters can fit as much power as they need on the transom.

Automatic Two-Speed Transmission

The two-speed transmission makes easy work of transferring 600hp to the gearcase. It doles out maximum torque and acceleration in first gear then silently shifts to second for efficient cruising and thrilling top speed. No shift clunk. No limitations. Only smooth, impressive power.

Independent, Steerable Gearcase

Electro-hydraulic controls allow the steerable gearcase to react instantly to driver commands. With no movement from the engine above water, there are no distractions – only precise maneuverability around docks and smooth, effortless handling in open water.

Contra-Rotating Propellers

A new series of dual props were expertly crafted to harness the full potential of 600hp. Designed to run in a contra-rotating configuration, the new propellers power the boat on plane swiftly and efficiently, while delivering exceptional handling and fuel economy at midrange speeds.

Exceptionally Smooth & Quiet

A more rugged, more refined next-generation Advanced MidSection (AMS) mounting system cradles the powerhead to isolate noise and vibration, while careful tuning dampens induction sounds and nearly eliminates injection noise. 600hp never sounded so quiet.

Verado Performance Data
Superior Fuel Economy

Calibrated to deliver full performance on 87-octane fuel, the V12 Verado outboard leverages dual propellers, a hydrodynamic design and Advanced Range Optimization (ARO) to maximize fuel economy. In one boat test, dual V12 Verado outboards delivered 20% better fuel economy at cruise than triple competitive 425hp outboards.

Refined Power

Industry-leading 7.6 liters of displacement and a performance-inspired quad-cam design generate exceptional torque to make easy work of propelling heavy boats on plane. Because the engine works less, it runs longer, for uncompromising reliability.

Quiet & Smooth

The V12 Verado outboard establishes new standards for smooth and quiet operation. Even at 600hp, noise and vibration are on par with the V8 300hp Verado outboard – and superior to the competition.

Verado Advantage

Legendary Power: The 7.6L V12 powerhead delivers performance you can feel: exceptional torque, faster hole shots and sensational acceleration.

Extended Range: Enjoy your time on the water longer with Advanced Range Optimization (ARO) precisely adjusting fuel delivery for the best possible efficiency at cruise.

Smoother and Quieter: Every aspect of the engine was tuned to minimize noise and distraction. An innovative cowl design isolates vibration and prevents it from reaching the boat. It’s the quietest high-horsepower outboard on the market.

Corrosion Resistance: Not only are Verado outboards designed and built to withstand the rigors of saltwater, but they’re also backed by a three-year corrosion warranty.

Next Gen Digital Throttle & Shift

The 600hp Verado outboard comes standard with Next Gen Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) controls for ultra-smooth shifting and instant throttle response. Intuitive push-button access to select SmartCraft technologies such as Active Trim is integrated with the control. For multi-engine configurations, a Premier electronic remote control model is available. It includes a convenient display on the control base that's particularly beneficial for Joystick Piloting for Outboards applications.

Joystick Piloting for Outboards

Docking with the industry's most advanced Joystick Piloting system – compatible with multi-engine configurations with up to six Verado outboards – is now smoother and more refined thanks to the V12 Verado outboard's steerable gearcase and electro-hydraulic, automotive-style power steering. Maneuvering in tight spaces is as simple as nudging the joystick whichever direction the boat needs to go. The engines stay still, while the gearcases turn underwater, giving you the control to command the boat with nothing but the palm of your hand.

Skyhook Advanced Features

Joystick Piloting includes access to Mercury Skyhook® Advanced Features, which allow you to “digitally anchor” the boat in current, set and maintain a heading, lock the bow in place or line up accurate drifts. Just punch a button, and the system goes to work. Adjustments are subtle, with no shift clunk, and they’re smooth thanks to the steerable gearcase, which eliminates distracting engine movement above the water.

Available 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 an intuitive touchscreen interface.

Limited Warranty

In addition to surviving the most grueling endurance tests Mercury could design, every V12 Verado outboard comes backed by a standard three-year limited warranty that protects your investment.

Mercury Product Protection

Mercury Product Protection is an extended service contract for your Mercury engine that covers certain expenses caused by defects in materials and workmanship for up to five additional years after the Mercury Limited Warranty expires.


Mercury changed the way the marine industry thinks about maintenance so you barely need to think about it at all. The V12 Verado outboard can run for 200 hours between oil changes and benefits from the extreme protection and performance enhancement of Mercury SAE 10W-30 Full Synthetic Marine Engine Oil, our most capable four-stroke engine oil. Mercury Premium Power Steering Fluid and Automatic Transmission Fluid were developed alongside the V12 Verado outboard to provide maximum lubricity and performance, even in extreme conditions. An innovative top cowl service hood makes servicing critical components a snap wherever you are on the water without having to haul out the boat. Plus, the entire top cowl doesn’t have to come off to allow more in-depth maintenance until 1,000 hours or five years of operation.

With hassle-free maintenance and the backing of an extensive global service network, you have the freedom to travel farther and stay out longer than ever before.
