Unleashing the All New Mercury Verado V12 600hp

Building upon the Verado brand’s legacy, Mercury has reimagined outboard performance to deliver unrivalled boating experiences. Featuring the impressive V12 powerhead, the 600hp outboard offers exceptional range and performance, taking boating adventures to new horizons. With groundbreaking advancements in handling and control, including the industry’s first steerable gear-case and a revolutionary two-speed transmission, this engine sets new standards in premium design and engineering. Experience the quiet, smooth, and powerful performance that defines the Verado V12 600hp.

Effortless Power Transfer: Automatic 2 Speed Transmission

Effortlessly transferring 600hp to the gear-case, the automatic 2-speed transmission unleashes maximum torque and acceleration in first gear. Seamlessly shifting to second gear, it enables efficient cruising and exhilarating top speeds, delivering smooth and impressive power without any shift clunk or limitations.

Powerhouse Performance: V12 Power

The first-ever V12 outboard powerhead packs top-notch horsepower and performance into a surprisingly compact footprint. Combined with the steerable gearcase and streamlined rigging, this design allows for easy mounting on 27-inch centres, providing boaters with the flexibility to have the desired power on their transom.

Precise Manoeuvrability: Steerable Gearcase

With instant response to driver commands through electro-hydraulic controls, the steerable gearcase ensures precise manoeuvrability. Eliminating engine movement above water, distractions are minimised, enabling smooth handling around docks and effortless navigation across open waters.

Optimal Efficiency: Contra-Rotating Props

Expertly crafted for harnessing the full potential of 600hp, the dual props operate in a contra-rotating configuration. Swiftly propelling the boat onto plane with efficient performance, they deliver exceptional handling and fuel economy at mid-range speeds, enhancing the overall boating experience.

Whisper-Quiet Operation

Thanks to the rugged and refined next-gen Advanced MidSection (AMS) mounting system, the powerhead is cradled to reduce noise and vibration. Precise tuning further minimises induction and injection noise, resulting in an impressively quiet 600hp engine.

Tested on a 43-foot day boat weighing 22,000 pounds, the Verado V12 600hp outboards demonstrated impressive fuel efficiency. Compared to triple 425hp outboards from the leading competitor, the Verado outboards achieved a remarkable 20% improvement in fuel economy at identical cruise speed and an impressive 24% better fuel economy at top speed.
