Mercury Extreme Reliability
Boating is not often thought of as a harsh environment. Just stop and think about it. Marine engines can and are often used for extended periods at wide-open throttle in harsh saltwater and full UV sunlight. Then sit in storage over the off season, in some cases without any use.
At Mercury, they test the engines mercilessly and use those results to make the engines even more reliable. The tougher the test, the tougher the engine. Mercury put the engines through tests such as vicious log strikes, salt water spray booths, high humidity chambers and hot and cold water temperatures. That’s just phase one of the brutal testing process. Then Mercury run each engine rigorously for thousands of hours to prove it can stand the test of time. So whatever you put the engine through, Mercury have already done it.
Mercury Joystick Control - Full 360 degree control. Right at your fingertips.
Move sideways, diagonally or spin the boat on its own axis. Dock in close quarters without being concerned about wind or current, easily load the boat on a trailer. Throttle, shift and steering-right at your fingertips.
3-year Corrosion Warranty
A lot of manufacturers talk about their corrosion resistant outboards but Mercury Marine is the only manufacturer who backs it up with an exclusive 3-year limited corrosion warranty and that’s only the beginning.
There is one big difference in metals and how they react in salt water. That difference can be the choice between years of boating fun or costly corrosion failures and high labour bills. Mercury’s proprietary formula is melted at their foundry in Fond Du Lac, WI, USA. Mercury call it XK360. It is an extremely low copper content aluminium alloy, which leads the industry in corrosion resistance. Mercury Marine’s XK360 alloy is not just the industry leader, it is the industry standard.
All recreational models from the 400Hp Verado to the 2.5Hp Two Stroke Mercury Outboard, receive a fully transferable, non-declining warranty that goes deeper than the rest. A comprehensive warranty that’s supported by the strength and service expertise of one of the biggest dealer networks in the country. Simply have your engine service by us here at Melbourne Marine Centre or another Authorised Mercury Service Centre at the recommended routine servicing/maintenance requirements set by Mercury Marine, and you’re covered by an additional 2-year factory backed warranty on top of the first 3 years. That’s a full 5 years of warranty coverage.
