Maximus®

  • Long Tube and Short Tube configurations
  • A boat requiring increased stern lift will benefit from the Long Tube version, while most performance enthusiasts will run the Short Tube and realize a gain of 6 to 7 mph.
  • Designed for sterndrive applications that have a very high X-dimension
  • Offered in 15.25-inch diameter for the Bravo XR Short Sport Master and 15.625-inch diameter for Bravo XR Dual Water Pickup and Sport Master.

High-performance sterndrives will benefit from the ability to raise drive heights higher than ever before with the Maximus. By raising drive heights, less drag is achieved because less of the gearcase is in the water. The Short Tube model will offer a cut-down barrel and more bow lift, while the Long Tube will provide more stern lift.

The Maximus five-blade is one of the best performers for step bottom boats offering incredible slip reduction capabilities … translation, eye popping planing performance, jaw dropping mid-range speeds and with many applications increased top end speeds over the Bravo I propeller.

The Maximus is offered in 15.625″ diameter for go fast step Vee bottoms with high “X” dimension. The 15.25″ diameter is offered specifically for the Shorty Sport Master where gearcase clearance is critical. The 15″ diameter is a must for the awesome performance Cats and go fast party boats. Pitch range is 23″ through 35″ in one inch increments.

Mercury Racing offers  Lab Finished Maximus in short tube and long tube models. The shot tube was developed with high performance OEM boat builders including Fountain, Eliminator, Donzi, Outerlimits, Sunsation and many others. The shortened exhaust tube (some people refer to it as the diffuser ring or barrel) settles the stern of select hulls, resulting in a 2-4 mph increase in top-end speed. If you are running a standard long tube Maximus and you feel the stern of the boat is lifting, the propeller(s) could be the cause. Switch to short tube Maximus.

  • Designed to run 70+ MPH with medium bow lift
  • For 300 – 600 HP sterndrive vee, stepped vee & air entrapment hulls
