Raising the bar in the marine industry, the new 250 and 300hp V-8 Verado engines continue the Verado’s legacy as the most refined outboard engine on the water with the new high-displacement, quad-cam design of the new V-8 powerhead generating plenty of torque; especially at mid-range. 

Across the RPM range, the V-8 platform provides exhilarating performance and sea trials have proven the 300hp Verado to be quicker and faster than the closest competitor, whilst still providing better fuel economy.

Digital Controls

The V-8 Verados are compatible with, and feature, Mercury-engineered digital controls and electrohydraulic power steering for smooth operation. Equipped with Adaptive Speed Control, they deliver increased throttle response and a ‘sportier’ feel. 

The new 250 and 300hp V-8 Verado will be available with digital (DTS) controls and power steering and Mercury Joystick Piloting for Outboards for maximum manoeuvrability and control. 

Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH)

The Verado driving experience is further enhanced by class-leading NVH reduction for an ultra-quiet ride. The new V-8 models’ next-generation Advanced Mid-Section (AMS) incorporates perimeter mounts that deliver the lowest vibration in the industry, while sound barriers make it the quietest outboard in its segment. Exclusive Advanced Sound Control technology allows users to toggle between ultra-quiet operation and a ‘throatier’-sounding sport mode. 

Colour Options

Mercury’s Cold Fusion white cowl colour options plus the popular Phantom Black, combined with five factory accent colour panels and ‘paint-ready’ panels, allow the owner to mix and match or paint their own panels to further personalise their engine. 

“Like the V-6 engines launched in February, these V-8 engines will set a new benchmark in the marine industry and set us apart from the competition,” commented Ben Allen, General Manager for the Marine Leisure Division, E. P. Barrus Ltd.
