Greetings from Miami! We just unleashed a number of exciting new products at the Miami Boat Show. Two new members have been added to the game changing QC4v sterndrive family. The power range now extends from 860 h.p. to an astounding 1750 h.p.! We’ve also added an exotic model to our popular 400R outboard family. And, a new surface piercing propeller, designed exclusively for 400R consumer performance outboards and the 400 ROS competition outboard, is produced on the same state-of-the-art CNC machines used to mill Mercury Racing’s legendary five and six blade sterndrive cleaver propellers.
All New 860 Sterndrive
Designed, developed and manufactured in-house, the naturally aspirated QC4v (quad cam four valve) 860 sterndrive features Mercury Racing’s exclusive aluminum four-valve cylinder heads and dual overhead camshaft valve train. These quad cam, four-valve heads are integrated with Racing’s proprietary 9.0 Liter V-8 cylinder block, packed with Mercury Racing designed and specified hardware.
The 860 shares all of the high performance running qualities of its turbocharged siblings. Rear-facing ram horn intakes direct induction noise rearward for enhanced power and to reduce cockpit noise for a more pleasant boating experience.
The 860 is backed by an unprecedented 2-year warranty for recreational boating.
400R Carbon Edition
We are very proud to reveal the 400R Carbon Edition, an exotic high performance Verado outboard featuring contemporary layered surfacing sculpted out of lightweight carbon fiber composite.
Carbon Edition 400Rs share all of the industry leading performance characteristics and creature comforts of its Phantom Black and Cold Fusion White 400R siblings, while providing a an even higher level of luxury with this bold, aggressive visual treatment.
CNC Outboard Cleaver
Designed exclusively for 400R consumer performance outboards and the 400 ROS competition outboard, the precision machined five blade CNC Outboard Cleaver Propeller is designed to maximize top-end speed on performance hulls powered by 400R and 400 ROS outboards fitted with the Mercury Racing Sport Master gearcase.
Game Changing Power for Offshore Powerboat Racing Competitors
Our new QC4v 1750 Competition sterndrive raises the bar of offshore powerboat racing. Producing an astounding one thousand seven hundred and fifty horsepower, the most powerful engine ever produced by Mercury Racing offers massive torque for unmatched acceleration and top-end speeds.
The 1750 sports a bold new color package which differentiates it from its consumer QC4v siblings.
Miami marks the public debut of an all new Mercury Racing Propellers display. The state-of-the-art display represents our full range of high performance outboard and sterndrive props. The show also marks the public debut of an all-new video. The Artisans features the talented men who who handcraft each Mercury Racing propeller to precision tuned works of art.
