driven to win
mercury racing continually gives birth to new achievements in power,
innovation, and sophistication. Our expert craftsmen produce highly specialized
sterndrive and outboard engines, components, accessories, and stainless steel
propellers using their unique, time-tested talent and advanced in-house technologies.
The lessons we’ve learned from experiences on the racecourse evolve into computergenerated “CAD” designs that become the blueprints of future Mercury Racing products.
This dedication to building – and racing – durable, premium, high-performance marine
propulsion systems stems from Mercury Marine’s industry-leading heritage now
70 years and counting.

sterndrives
Mercury Racing strives to create the most powerful, responsive,
fuel-efficient sterndrives on the planet. Doing so requires incredible
dedication. So it’s no surprise that Mercury Racing – along with its parent
company Mercury Marine® – was the first U.S. marine engine manufacturer to be ISO 9001:2000 certified. These sterndrives reflect Mercury
Racing’s high standards and commitment to continuing our leadership
position in the marine industry both on and off the racecourse.
STERNDRIVEs
525 EFI sterndrive
You don’t need to don a race number (but you can) to enjoy the raw power
this race-proven engine delivers. It’s a favorite among recreation sport boaters and
poker runners alike. Already world renowned for its prowess on the racecourse, the
525’s popularity is bound to grow with the addition of an extra dose of durability via
the newly available NXT1® and NXT1 SSM drive options. Plus, for the first time ever, we’ve
added eight custom color options to the standard Mercury Racing Blue Metallic. But no
matter what color you choose, this engine is always going to be red hot.

STERNDRIVEs
600 SCi sterndrive
Since its 2006 debut, the 600 SCi has been a staple for low-cost, trouble-free
performance power. That value has recently been enhanced with a change in fuel
requirements from 91 posted octane (R+M)/2, (98 RON) to a new minimum posted
octane requirement of 87 (R+M)/2, (91 RON). NXT1 and NXT1 SSM drive options enhance
versatility of the Mercury Racing 600 SCi – the first of our sterndrives certified for
sale in the European Union (EU). The optional Stage 2 X-haust Noise Reducer system
enables the versatile 600 SCi to meet stringent EU Recreational Craft Directive
(RCD) noise regulations, as well. As you can see, we’ve designed this engine to make
sure you can take it pretty much anywhere in the world and meet the requirements.
Requirements you’ll relegate to the back of your mind the moment you realize this
engine does nothing but exceed expectations.

1075 sci sterndrive
Mercury Racing’s 1075 SCi will never be the most humble machine on water. It has
no reason to be: Its extraordinary power and invaluable reliability have led to an unmatched
legacy. It comes equipped with the digital SmartCraft® Controller Area Network (CAN)
system, a network of sensors that proactively monitors engine functions, water pressure,
and battery voltage. The CAN enables the PCM 07 to communicate data to the optional
Mercury Racing VesselView® – Race Edition monitor and SmartCraft System Link gauges
for real-time data on multiple engine and boat functions. The PCM 07 also drives the
exclusive Engine Guardian System. Engine Guardian monitors engine functions to forewarn
of possible problems that could lead to engine damage. This “smart” technology not only
detects and alerts the boater of a problem, it processes the data and reduces power to the
maximum safe level that allows the boater to continue operation.

optimax 225 sport xs
You shouldn’t have to sacrifice speed and power for fuel economy. So don’t.
The Mercury Racing 225 Sport XS is proof positive you can have the best of both worlds.
Its exclusive PCM 07 microprocessor equips the 225 Sport XS with the ability to match
– and surpass – many of today’s large four-stroke engines in fuel economy. Modeled
after the popular OptiMax 225 Pro XS, the Sport XS combines a race-proven Sport
Master gearcase and solid engine mounts for remarkable high-speed handling. That
makes it fast, furious, and fuel-efficient. Plus it delivers a three-star C.A.R.B. rating on
87-octane fuel, which means ultra-low engine emissions. So you can “go green” even
while going 85 mph.

High-performance Props
Mercury Racing Lab Finished ® outboard propellers have set more speed records, and
won more national and world championships than any other propeller. Many of the first propellers were
created and produced to support factory tunnel boat racing. In an effort to get more performance out of
racing props, hydrodynamic experts spent years in engineering labs studying propellers traveling through
water and the effects modifications made to propeller (and boat) performance. World renowned powerboat
racers coined the term ”Lab Finished” when referencing the custom Team Mercury propellers tweaked and
modified in the engineering lab. Team Mercury racers helped make ”Lab Finished” a term known for recordsetting speed and performance around the world. Today, we offer a full line of high-performance outboard
propellers fit for virtually any application. Whether you’re a professional racer or simply want to be the first
to the fishing hole, you’ll find the right prop to match your desire.

LAB and PRO Finish Options Lab Finished models feature thinner
blades (compared to the Pro Finished) with crisp leading and tight trailing
edges that are designed for lightweight boats with natural bow lift. The
Lab Finished is your prop of choice for flat-out running. Pro Finished
models feature thick blades (compared to Lab Finished) with durable
leading edges, high luster, and bow lift to see the big numbers at top
end. The Pro Finished keeps you in mind for your everyday go fast prop.
Propeller Cases constructed
of high-impact polyethylene protect
your investment during shipping and
storage. See mercuryracing.com for

outboard gearcases
master gearcases
No matter what kind of craft you captain, Mercury Racing has the proper
gearcase for your application. The Sport Master gearcase (available in 2.5L or 3.0L)
offers heavy-duty durability for boats that travel in excess of 85 mph, with low-water
pick-ups and a crescent leading-edge design that maximizes efficiency and speed. The
Torque Master gearcase is designed for heavier boats capable of hitting the 85 mph
mark and features a heavy-duty 19-spline stainless steel propshaft. The Fleet Master
is intended for center console offshore applications and offers a heavy-duty offshore
bearing carrier, plus a double shot-peened pinion gear. And did we mention the newly
designed gearcase to handle the 350 SCi’s high torque and power output? Our engineers
developed a new hydrodynamic shape and size to accommodate the larger diameter,
net forged straight bevel gears, heavy-duty 1-1/4" diameter propeller shaft, and billet
aluminum bearing carrier.

x-haust Noise reducer
X-haust Noise Reducer is the only fully integrated stern drive engine exhaust noise
reduction system to meet stringent European Union Recreational Craft Directive
(RCD) noise regulations. X-haust features a custom Y-pipe which combines the
two banks of exhaust from each engine into a single exhaust tube. The single tube
exhaust outlet per engine provides the transom space needed for the transommounted X-haust muffler.
X-haust is available in two configurations. Stage 2 is the complete system, that,
with transom-mounted mufflers, is capable of compliance with the EU RCD. Stage 1,
designed to satisfy most noise regulations outside of the EU, eliminates the
transom-mounted mufflers. The location of the exhaust outlets, underwater when
off-plane and near the water surface when operating on-plane, is the same for
both configurations. Back pressure is minimal, resulting in insignificant power
loss. An integrated idle relief tube routes some exhaust through the boat above
the waterline, providing a necessary vacuum break and a little rumble when
operating off-plane.
Zero Effort Controls
®
Mercury Racing Zero Effort Controls feature a canted handle design that really
fits the hand. Throttles have ball and spring detents which provide tactile feel and
resist “creep.” Shift levers provide a comfortable “throw” into and out of gear,
giving sport boaters complete control of their boat. The shorter shift lever allows
captains to know, by instinct, which function they command. The SmartCraft
Digital Throttle and Shift (DTS) system technology brings precise throttle and
shift response to race-proven Mercury Racing Zero Effort Controls.
smartcraft
The next wave in boating, SmartCraft Integrated Marine Technology monitors
a variety of vital engine functions including fuel flow, fuel range, fuel used, and
RPM, along with water depth, trim angle, water pressure, and battery voltage. Boat
functions monitored include fuel tank levels, and water and waste tank levels.
Vesselview – race edition
VesselView – Race Edition features custom interactive software specifically
designed for performance boaters. Mercury’s exclusive PCM 07 microprocessor
sends engine and vessel operating parameters to the SmartCraft VesselView
hardware unit, where they’re displayed in real-time.
K-Plane® Trim Tabs
Mercury Racing K-Planes are the epitome of trim tab development, durability,
and performance. Originally designed to endure the rigors of offshore racing,
K-Planes help get boats up on plane faster and keep them level. Selected models
of the legendary trim tabs have been updated for enhanced durability, corrosion
resistance, and SmartCraft compatibility.
