Mercury’s Optimax 125

Mercury Marine has added to its direct fuel-injected OptiMax outboard range with its first 125hp model.
Weighing in at 170 kilograms – the same as the existing 115hp OptiMax – Mercury says the new engine has an impressive power to weight ratio for use across a range of applications.

“When you experience this new engine you immediately notice the great torque it produces, which quickly lifts you up to a plane and keeps you there at lower revs,” said Ken Evans, Director of Outboards.

“This is an engine which is ideal for inshore and offshore fishing, for family runabouts, cruisers – there are a lot of applications,” Evans said.

The 1.5 litre, three cylinder 125hp Optimax is based closely on its popular 115hp sibling, featuring the same engine block, which allowed the designers to keep the weight the same as the lower output model.
