Mercury rolls out new outboard

Mercury Marine is introducing the Verado 250 Pro FourStroke - the latest addition to the company's lineup of performance outboards.

This engine is quiet and virtually vibration-free, despite its ability to provide mid-range acceleration and top speed, the company said. The 250 Pro FourStroke is engineered to deliver the enhanced performance of other Mercury Pro Series engines, and it does so with a new graphics package.

The fuel grade for the 250 Pro FourStroke is the same as Mercury's 300-hp Verado engine (91 recommended for maximum performance under all conditions, but it will run on 87 octane without compromising reliability or conflicting with warranty coverage).

The 250 Pro FourStroke is available with a 20-inch shaft (L version) for bass boats 21 feet and longer and a 25-inch shaft (XL version) for multi-species and saltwater bay boats. Performance pontoons and tritoons are also candidates for the 250 Pro.

The warranty for the engine is the standard three-year limited guarantee for pleasure use. The engine is eligible for Mercury promotional warranties, such as the 5 and Drive.
