Mercury Marine Introduces New Engine Line

(Fond du Lac) Mercury Marine in Fond du Lac introduced the industry’s first ever V10 outboard Tuesday with the launch of its all-new 5.7Liter 350 and 400 horsepower Verado® outboard engines. Mercury Marine President Chris Drees says the V10 Verado outboards are powerful, smooth and quiet. He says they have many of the same fuel efficiency features that are synonymous with Mercury’s high-horsepower lineup. The V10 weighs 695 pounds and features the same 26-inch mount spacing as the V8 outboards. To keep up with robust customer demand since 2008 the company has invested $2 billion in its manufacturing footprint and has expanded to more than 3 million square feet.
