Mercury Optimax

Due to European Union emissions regulations, all Mercury two-strokes have been withdrawn from sale to the leisure market in Europe.

Some Optimax engine models may remain available for installation on certified rescue boats, however we would advise that four-stroke engines are fitted unless a like-for-like replacement is absolutely necessary.

Data on the Mercury Optimax range has been retained on this page as a reference source only: this reflects 2017 production.

75hp to 125hp

Mercury Optimax

The 3-cylinder OptiMax 1.5L outboards (75hp-125hp) deliver the gutsy power of direct fuel injection in small and mid-sized boats. Like the higher-horsepower models, these engines produce high intensity power with low noise levels and clean-burning fuel efficiency. They're lightweight and provide spectacular acceleration, making them perfectly suited to RIBs, sportsboats and day cruisers.

Note that Mercury Optimax engines are no longer available in Europe we would recommend specifying a Mercury Four-Stroke engine instead.

Mercury Optimax

Lighter than many four-strokes in its class, the 3.0L OptiMax (200hp-250hp) is weight-friendly with every boat hull and features excellent performance and hole shot. Remarkably, it also trolls at lower speeds than comparable four-strokes.
