Mercury Marine received the annual Innovation Prize of Propulsion System award for its 350-hp Verado outboard at the China International Boat Show (Zhoushan Archipelago).

The judges — show organizers and members of the media — noted the engine’s performance, stability at high speeds, and compact and intelligent design.

“Winning the Innovation Prize of Propulsion System award in Asia is a great honor for Mercury Marine,” Randy Caruana, vice president for North and Central America and Asia Pacific, said in a statement. “The Asia Pacific market quickly adopted the Verado family of engines and use it in recreational, commercial and especially government marine applications. The customer feedback regarding the 350 Verado in the government program in Asia has been very positive.”

This is the second major award for Mercury Marine in Asia this year.

Mercury won its second consecutive Most Eco-Friendly Marine Business Award during the China International Boat Show (Shanghai) for its 75- to 115-hp 4-stroke outboard platform.
