Standard Features

Proven Technology
 More than a decade of reliable Mercury® OptiMax® performance is testimony to a great design. Low-pressure Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) delivery, corrosion-resistant alloys and finishes, and rugged components keep Mercury OptiMax outboards on the water, season upon season.  
Fuel Economy
 Atomized fuel is injected directly into each combustion chamber, backed by a precise charge of compressed air, and the fuel / air mixture is directed toward the spark plug by a uniquely shaped piston. The result is more-complete combustion for outstanding economy and smoke-free emissions.  
Lightweight
 No outboard in its class weighs less than the Mercury® 250 hp OptiMax®. That helps create amazing hole-shot acceleration, increased top speed and overall efficiency. Its compact 60-degree V6 engine delivers brawn without the bulk.  
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.  
Accessory Power
 A 60A (756W) belt-driven alternator keeps batteries charged to power electronics, lights, livewells and audio equipment.  
Geared to Win
 The Torque Master II gearcase, available on select OptiMax® 225 hp and 250 hp Pro XS™ outboards, is designed specifically for performance bass boats with top speeds of up to 85 mph. Its stout 1.25-inch prop shaft can handle the strain of running at an elevated mounting height. Patented front water pickups keep the engine running cool regardless of engine height. A cambered skeg improves handling and drivability.
