The world's first V12 Outboard
Here are some of the reasons why this 7.6L beauty is worth the price:
● Perfect for heavyweight boats
As mentioned above, the customers are edging towards heavier boats. It’s only natural to get an engine that could meet the power demand.
With a weight of 1260 pounds, these are some of the heaviest in their category. While some may argue that their 689 pound Mercury Racing 450R counterpart has a better power-to-weight ratio, keep in mind that these are not recommended for typical fishing boats.
● Prototype and manufacturers
The prototype and plans were made known to a select few manufacturers two years back to develop a design for their boat that could incorporate the model.
Mercury is a cheaper option compared to the Volvo Penta. This is currently the only Mercury outboard to boast 600HP since Volvo stopping the production of its marinized Cadillac engines.
Although the engine has proven itself to be faster, these are not highly advised for sprinting boats.
● Two-speed automatic transmission
Mercury has invested highly in its Research and Development team, from variable pitch propellor to two-speed automatic transmission. Throughout the decade, Mercury has revolutionized the boating industry.
With the new tech, gear ratios are close together at first, giving you an enjoyable experience with smoother shifts and faster turns.
With the strategic positioning of the gearcase below the powerhead, Mercury has managed to achieve lesser drag.
● Hassle-free maintenance
The new Mercury Verado is designed with routine maintenance checks in mind.
With the push of a button, the service hatch opens the top of the entire cowling, where the owner can manually access the oil dipstick to check the level of the reservoir.
Another advantage is changing the gear case oil without removing the boat from the water, saving you the hauling costs.
The manual gives it 200 hours before its first maintenance check, and then bolted on cowling can stay for around 1000 hours without any disruptions.

● 45 degree turns
Instead of the 30-degree maneuvering, the 45-degree turns by the gearcase are efficient while using the joystick Docking outboard system.
Since the entire engine isn’t rotating during every move, sharp turns and fast curves are easier to handle, and this level of control is handy when tackling the rough waves.
The Mercury 7.6L V12 600 HP Verado Outboard is indeed a welcome addition to the market. Before jumping into the trend and purchasing it, be sure to do prior research on whether it is the right engine for your boat.
