Mercury Marine Announces 600hp V12 Outboard
February 12, 2021
As center consoles have grown in size and power, the outboard engine manufacturers have had to keep up with these incredible hull developments. Mercury Marine has introduced their solution with the launch of their brand new 7.6-liter V12 600hp Verado outboard engine, their most powerful outboard yet and the first V12 outboard produced. A few revolutionary features for an outboard include naturally aspirated, large-displacement, quad-cam powerheads designed to get boats going and on plane quickly, the first two-speed transmission for an outboard, first steerable gearcase, and remarkable fuel economy and range.
“With boats continuing to grow bigger and performance expectations continuing to rise, boaters have been asking for a better, more capable high‑horsepower solution to meet their needs. The V12 Verado outboard is Mercury’s answer,” said Chris Drees, Mercury Marine president. “Using our advanced engineering and design capabilities, we completely redefined outboard performance. The V12 Verado outboard delivers boaters unrivaled freedom, luxury and power to pursue their passions on the water. This is a remarkable engine that will change the future of boating.”
