More than a decade of reliable Mercury® OptiMax® performance is testimony to a great design. Low-pressure Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) delivery, corrosion-resistant alloys and finishes, and rugged components keep Mercury OptiMax outboards on the water, season upon season.

Atomized fuel is injected directly into each combustion chamber, backed by a precise charge of compressed air, and the fuel / air mixture is directed toward the spark plug by a uniquely shaped piston. The result is more-complete combustion for outstanding economy and smoke-free emissions.

No outboard in its class weighs less than the Mercury® 250hp OptiMax®. That helps create amazing hole-shot acceleration, increased top speed and overall efficiency. Its compact 60-degree V6 engine delivers brawn without the bulk.

The Torque Master II gearcase, available on select 225hp and 250hp Pro XS™ outboards, is designed specifically for performance bass boats. Its stout 1.25-inch prop shaft can handle the strain of running at an elevated mounting height. Patented front water pickups keep the engine running cool regardless of engine height. A cambered skeg improves handling and drivability.
