Mercury Builds The Ultimate 150 FourStroke

Mercury Marine’s new 150 FourStroke – the ultimate 150 hp EFI outboard engine for boaters seeking an engine that offers unprecedented world-class durability under all conditions and is light enough to deliver superb fuel efficiency and tremendous performance – is the new top choice for offshore and inshore boats.

Despite the naturally aspirated engine’s remarkable small size and low weight, the new 150hp outboard by Mercury boasts a 3.0-liter, four-cylinder in-line configuration that easily creates superior power for single or twin applications – from the lightest to the largest hulls.

In fact, it has more displacement than any other 150hp four-stroke engine, yet it delivers fuel efficiency at cruising speed that no other engine can beat.

“We listened to what boaters were asking for and then set out to build the ultimate 150 horsepower outboard,” said Nicolas Bauduin , Director of the outboard product for the EMEA markets. “The finished product is an engine that is incredibly durable – more durable, in fact, than any other 150 ever built – but is actually lighter than the less-durable engines of our competition. It delivers great fuel efficiency and
tremendous performance. “I believe we accomplished exactly what we aimed for; this engine is a perfect addition to our wide breadth of four-stroke engines.”

Despite the list of precedent-setting features and benefits, Mercury’s new 150 is also affordable and will be priced at a competitive price point –The new 150 FourStroke is designed, built, and tested to be the most reliable and durable 150hp four-stroke on the planet, which means it will start and run consistently and last longer on any body of water anywhere in the world. The new 150 FourStroke has endured severe cold climate field testing in applications off the west coast of Canada to commercial fishing in the warm waters of the Bahamas and the unprotected seas around Guadeloupe in the French West Indies. The 150 FourStroke handled thousands of hours of hard-core severe duty, real-world testing in applications the average boat operator will never endure – all with excellent results.
