60R

The 60R is a lightweight, compact outboard tuned and geared to deliver amazing hole-shot acceleration for instant on-plane performance in skinny water.

  • Four-cylinder, 1.0-liter long-stroke powerhead tuned for torque by Mercury Racing.
  • WOT range is extended to 6300 rpm to maximize acceleration and enable more propping options.
  • Single overhead camshaft cylinder head keeps the powerhead as light and slim as possible for less intrusion on the transom.
  • Powerful 18-amp alternator is designed to maintain battery charge on boats equipped with angling electronics and baitwell pumps.

The 4.25-inch diameter, high-thrust gearcase accommodates a robust 2.33:1 gear ratio to handle up to 20 percent more prop-blade area than a standard gearcase, and is shaped to provide added lift aft to further boost hole-shot performance and confident handling at speed.

The Mercury Racing 60R fits perfectly on a 15-inch transom. Compared to competing 20-inch motors the Mercury Racing 60R offers a lower center of gravity for better boat handling and stability. It can accommodate a lower poling platform while eliminating the need for a jack plate or flared transom.

Best of all, the 60R is backed by a three-year factory warranty, with an option to purchase up to five additional years of Mercury Product Protection.
