Named Top Product by Boating Industry
The Mercury Marine 4.5L 200hp sterndrive is a 2015 Boating Industry Top Product of the year.
The winning products were selected based on many factors, including innovation, impact on the industry, and how they advanced their category or created a new category.
Built for Marine.
Designing a V-6 block solely for marine use allows Mercury to build the 4.5L with the ultimate protection system, using cast-iron componentry where the engine intersects with seawater, and using corrosion-resistant aluminium and composites everywhere else.
