Mercury® jet-drive outboards are specifically designed to pilot boats in shallow waters where propeller-driven hulls are unable to operate. Because there's no lower unit extending below the hull, the jet drive permits passage over obstacles that would restrict access to a propeller-driven outboard boat.
FourStroke Jet Outboards 25 - 80 hp
Fly over shallow-water obstacles with the greatest of ease. Quick and easy.
|The Big Tiller|
|The optional center-mounted Big Tiller offers optimal control. A longer tiller grip incorporates a convenient power trim switch, the shift lever is close at hand, and an optional digital troll control adjusts engine speed as low as 700 rpm in 10-rpm increments.|
|Water is drawn into the unit through the intake grill by an impeller, driven directly by the engine driveshaft. The water is then forced at high pressure through an outlet nozzle, creating thrust that drives the boat forward. To obtain reverse, a gate lifts into position over the outlet re-directing the pressure stream in the opposite direction.|
