Mercury OPTIMAX Outboards Marine Engines
OPTIMAX 250 HP
OPTIMAX 225 HP
OptiMax Pro XS blows away the competition when it comes to power, durability, performance and fuel efficiency. The new 250 Pro XS creates a class of its own with remarkable acceleration, awesome performance and the support of a three-year limited factory-backed, nondeclining warranty.
IMPROVED DURABILITY AND RESPONSE
Only OptiMax Pro XS features Carbon Fiber Reeds to control airflow into the engine crankcase. Carbon fiber reeds produce improved performance and efficiency because they are more durable and responsive than stainless steel or other fiber materials.
The Pro XS offers a Higher Wide-Open-Throttle RPM Operating Range, giving you more propeller options to maximize the performance of your boat.
The durable Torque Master Gearcase features a heavy-duty propshaft and Mercury-patented dual water pickups on the front end of the torpedo for a constant flow of cooling water. The asymmetrical skeg delivers superior handling by countering the torque created by prop rotation.
PRECISE HIGH-SPEED HANDLING
Controlled handling at all speeds is essential, so we outfitted the 250 Pro XS with Solid Billet Aluminum Mounts to keep the engine from turning or twisting under high torque. (20-inch models only)
ENHANCED LIFT AND PERFORMANCE
The four-blade, stainless steel Trophy® Plus is an excellent choice of propeller for the Pro XS, providing unbelievable bow lift, quick planing and superior handling in tight turns with reduced torque. Our exclusive Performance Vent System® (PVS®) allows you to custom tune prop blade venting for maximum acceleration and cruising performance.
Exclusive Dome-Shaped Pistons efficiently direct the fuel/air charge to the spark plug, producing excellent running quality, fuel economy and low emissions.
SUPERIOR SPEED AND PERFORMANCE
OptiMax consistently outperforms other DI engines in holeshot, mid-range acceleration and top-end speed.
BEST-IN-CLASS FUEL EFFICIENCY
The innovative OptiMax DI system delivers the ultimate in efficiency, squeezing more miles and performance from every drop of fuel.
LIGHTWEIGHT, COMPACT DESIGNS
