Mercury Diesel – A new era of technology

Mercury Marine is world renowned for creating innovations that provide boaters the best experiences on the water. From pioneering sterndrive propulsion systems introduced at the Chicago boatshow more than half a century ago to today’s joystick controls that give boaters the confidence and ability to pilot the boat of their dreams even under extreme conditions, Mercury is the undisputed leader in marine power and technology. In the world of diesel, Mercury is proud to provide boaters a complete model range of common rail engines to suit a wide variety of applications with both inline 4 and 6 cylinder Mercury Diesel models and the new V-6 and V-8 TDI models.

Mercury Diesel TDI 

Mercury Diesel TDI engines offer a new era of technology that delivers a diesel driving experience superior to any other. Mercury Diesel TDI engines are quiet and smooth with virtually no smoke or odour. Add that to the exceptional reliability and worldwide dealer network support of Mercury Marine and you have inboard or sterndrive diesel power that’s simply unbeatable.

Mercury Diesel 

Solid, quiet and dependable are the characteristics of this series. The lightweight, high output turbocharged Mercury Diesel engines deliver gas engine-like performance with the remarkable fuel economy of a diesel. The secret to Mercury Diesel’s smooth performance lies in its high pressure common rail injection system coupled with the performance-boosting turbocharger. You get the best of both worlds – diesel efficiency with power. Whether you’re offshore fishing, long distance cruising or simply zipping across the water, Mercury Diesel engines offer an enviable alternative.

Today’s recreational boaters demand a higher level of performance from all aspects of their vessels. Advances in boat building materials and techniques, improvements in vessel design, comfort and safety, and significant developments in marine electronics have raised expectations across the board. Mercury Diesel engines meet this challenge by delivering a level of performance and reliability that sets a completely new standard for marine diesel propulsion. The result of decades of research and cutting-edge innovations, Mercury Diesel engines feature specialised high-pressure common rail and electronic injection fuel systems that provide increased power-to-weight ratios, cleaner starts and less noise. The smoke and odour often associated with diesel engines are all but eliminated. With quiet, effortless start-ups and impressive acceleration, these engines contribute to a superior boating experience. To ensure maximum performance, all Mercury Diesel engines are SmartCraft™ capable. Integrated digital control and communications systems constantly monitor not only engine performance but also fuel tank levels and water depth. With an optional colour helm display that provides instant diagnostics and is easy to read, you’ll always be in command of your vessel.
