Mercury Marine’s all-new 400hp Verado outboard, built on Mercury’s proven L6SC (inline six-cylinder supercharged) Verado platform, is suitable for a wide range of applications, including blue-water fishing boats, larger sport boats, centre-consoles and pontoons.

Weighing just 303kg, the same as the 350hp Verado introduced four years ago, the newest Verado is the lightest outboard in the 400hp-plus category by more than 130kg.

The 400hp Verado will exclusively use the 5.44-inch 1.75 HD (heavy duty) gearcase and is compatible with Mercury Joystick Piloting for Outboards. It will be available in the same model variations as the 350hp Verado with colour options of Phantom Black and Cold Fusion.

Mercury’s 3+3=6-year outboard warranty provides engine owners with an additional three years of factorybacked protection against failures caused by defects in material or production.

The Mercury Racing 400R, for high-speed applications, will continue to be available through the dedicated Mercury Racing dealer network.
