New Mercury Verado 350 and 400R

During the Miami International Boat Show 2015, Mercury Marine introduced New high power Verado outboards.

Verado 350HP
This fourstroke outboard engine is a new addition to Mercury’s class-leading Verado family, all with a supercharger and starting from 150 HP. Built on Mercury’s proven inline six-cylinder Verado outboard engine, the Verado 350 delivers unsurpassed speed and overall performance without sacrificing durability and cruise fuel economy. The New Verado 350 has a new air intake to capture the coolest air possible. The engine has a new perforated flywheel coverand a new water-cooled supercharger. Also camshaft profiles, valves and cylinder head are re-designed to cope with the increased heat and cylinder pressure. The dry weight of the Verado 350 seems to be 53 Kg less than the 5.3-liter V8 Yamaha F350. Mercury introduces the New Verado 350 installed in triple and quad installations on sturdy offshore boats featured with a joystick control, still the 350 is an ideal solution for repowering a single engine installation. Next to the familiar Phantom black color, two tones of white are available.

Verado 400 Race
At a staggering 153 horsepower per litre, the all-new Mercury Racing Verado 400R outboard is the most powerful consumer outboard ever produced by Mercury and provides the highest power-to-weight ratio of all four-stroke outboards in its class, achieved through a number of advancements to the proven 2.6L Verado platform. The 400R seems to be built with the same components developed for the 350 HP. Except for things like cylinder head and valve train, making the RPM of the engine much higher. The dry weight seems to be the same. This outboard engine is designed to complement the latest generation of lightweight, high-performance fiberglass and RIB deep-V and center-console boats. The 400R is available in black or white, with graphics in different colors.
