Mercury announces new look for racing outboards


MERCURY Racing has released a bold new look for its 250 XS and 300 XS outboards.

The new high-impact graphics emphasise the horsepower rating and the fact these engines come from Mercury’s competitive Racing stable – where everything is about performance.

By combining high power and torque with ultra-light weight the 250 XS and 300 XS engines are in continual demand by racing enthusiasts around the world, and they’re also ideal for re-powering older performance boats.

250 XS – Record Breaking Speed

The 250 XS, a low-emissions TwoStroke, was a game changer from the moment it was released, outperforming competitive 250hp engines in a variety of categories including fuel economy, mid-range acceleration and top speed.

250 XS models come exclusively with the legendary Sport Master gearcase. Designed for lighter weight hulls capable of speeds in excess of 135km/h (85mph), the Sport Master features a crescent leading-edge housing with low water pickups.

This enables the 250 XS to run at elevated transom heights for maximum engine rpm, hydrodynamic efficiency and top-end speeds.

300 XS – Versatile High Performance

Not only does Mercury Racing’s 300 XS outperform all competitors at the same horsepower – it does it no matter what the application.

Available with 20”, 25” and 30” mid-sections, the 300 XS isn’t restricted to ski boats. A custom designed exhaust adapter plate – with built-in appendages for mounting after-market steering wing plates – enables the 300 XS to be used safely on high-speed multi-engine catamaran and vee-bottom boats as well.

Mercury also offer a range of gearcase and propeller options to suit its Racing outboard range. Check out the full range of products on the Racing website.
