NEW ADDITION

Taking up the middle slot in its Pro FourStroke Series of outboard engines, Mercury presents a 200-hp model to round out the offerings.

By Capt. Ken Kreisler

Mercury Marine’s Pro FourStroke line up included the 250- and 300-hp engines designed with the same notable acceleration and top speed of its other Pro Series engines, including the OptiMax Pro XS and Verado.

Joining the already sea-tested model offerings is the 200-hp Pro FourStroke, an engine built on the same six-cylinder Verado platform as its proven predecessors.

Furthering its performance, the state-of-the-art supercharged technology, developed for Verado, allows exact and programmable control with regards to strategizing fuel consumption and air intake.

The outstanding torque and overall performance of the 200 Pro FourStroke make it ideal for pontoons, saltwater bay and flats boats and freshwater fishing boats and comes standard with the Advanced Mid Section (AMS), Digital Throttle and Shift (DTS) and electro-hydraulic power steering for an unrivaled driving experience.
