Mercury Extreme Reliability
Boatingis 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-openthrottle in harsh saltwater and full UV sunlight. Then sit in storage over theoff season, in some cases without any use.
AtMercury, they test the engines mercilessly and use those results to make theengines even more reliable. The tougher the test, the tougher the engine. Mercuryput the engines through tests such as vicious log strikes, salt water spraybooths, high humidity chambers and hot and cold water temperatures. That’s justphase one of the brutal testing process. Then Mercury run each enginerigorously for thousands of hours to prove it can stand the test of time. Sowhatever you put the engine through, Mercury have already done it.

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
Alot of manufacturers talk about their corrosion resistant outboards but MercuryMarine is the only manufacturer who backs it up with an exclusive 3-yearlimited corrosion warranty and that’s only the beginning.
Thereis one big difference in metals and how they react in salt water. Thatdifference can be the choice between years of boating fun or costly corrosionfailures and high labour bills. Mercury’s proprietary formula is melted attheir foundry in Fond Du Lac, WI, USA. Mercury call it XK360. It is anextremely low copper content aluminium alloy, which leads the industry incorrosion resistance. Mercury Marine’s XK360 alloy is not just the industryleader, it is the industry standard.
