Mercury Marine introduces the new 25 and 30 hp FourStroke outboard platform – the lightest and fastest three-cylinder engines in their class
LAKE BOTTOM, Wis. (July 12, 2022) – Mercury Marine, a division of Brunswick Corporation (NYSE:BC), today introduced its next generation of 25 and 30 hp FourStroke outboards – designed from the ground up to be lighter, faster and easier to use and maintain. These outboards feature a 500cc three-cylinder powerhead with electronic fuel injection. For the first time, 25 and 30 hp electric-start models come standard with Mercury SmartCraft® digital technologies, allowing boaters to connect to the industry’s most advanced digital gauges and mobile devices through VesselView Mobile .
“Mercury’s new 25 and 30 hp platform brings new capabilities and improved customer experience to a wide variety of recreational and commercial boats,” said Chris Drees, president of Mercury Marine. “As well as being lighter, faster and quieter, the new engines in this line deliver what boaters have been asking for with exciting new options like digital technologies and an ergonomic tiller handle.”
Starting at just 132 pounds (60 kilograms), these new three-cylinder engines are 16 percent lighter than the previous generation and deliver unmatched fuel economy. Outboards are available in 25 and 30 hp FourStroke, 25 hp SeaPro and 25 hp ProKicker models.
The updated 25 and 30 hp deck is ideal for 11-16 foot v-bottom utility boats and aluminum Jon boats, inflatable boats, composite and fiberglass micro-skiffs from 11 to 13 feet and shallow V-bottom boats. Additionally, the introduction of a 25 hp ProKicker addresses the demand for better trolling control for larger 26-39 foot boats operating in choppy waters and winds commonly encountered in the Pacific Northwest waters.
All rig engines are available with electric or manual start, helm or remote controls, manual or electric trim and propeller or jet propulsion. Tiller handle models feature an award-winning nearly 23-inch ergonomic tiller handle, adjustable for right- or left-hand operation and intuitive to use.
Boaters will also appreciate the platform’s ease of maintenance and the option of full vessel integration with SmartCraft® technologies.
“Out of the water, routine maintenance has never been easier,” said Jim Hergert, senior category manager. “The no-spill oil change system includes a catch pan under the oil filter to catch drips and water can be quickly drained from the fuel filter without tools.”
“SmartCraft gauges provide vital engine data at the push of a button and anglers can dial in their trolling speed every 10 RPM with the Trolling Control feature” , Hergert said.
