Hat-trick of firsts

The world's first V12 outboard, the Mercury 600hp Verado engine features a naturally aspirated, large-displacement, quad-cam powerhead that generates impressive torque.

The 600hp Verado also has the industry’s first two-speed automatic transmission for an outboard; optimising engine rpm according to workload, facilitating powerful acceleration and highly efficient performance at cruise.

Yet another first sees the first steerable gearcase on an outboard; able to pivot independently underwater while the engine’s powerhead remains in a space-saving fixed position. This provides more room for multi-engine configurations and a wider steering angle for agile handling. With help from contra-rotating propellers, it also has better “bite” in the water for docking and other close-quarters manoeuvring.

“Mercury innovation pushes the boundaries yet again with an outboard that is a real game-changer,” said Ben Allen, General Manager of the Marine Division at Barrus, Mercury Marine’s exclusive distributor in the UK and Eire. “We are excited to see this engine and to experience first-hand Mercury’s most powerful outboard and the world’s first V12.”
