Mercury release 400hp Verado

Barry 2019-02-21

Mercury Marine is introducing an all-new 400hp Verado outboard - the most powerful Verado on the water. 

Since the launch of Mercury’s 350hp Verado and Mercury Racing’s 400R four years ago, boat owners have been asking for a higher horsepower Verado engine. Now, those requests have been answered.

“The acceptance of the 350hp Verado has been incredible and through extensive conversations with our customers around the world, we have learned that there is an appetite in the marketplace for a Verado-branded 400hp four-stroke outboard engine,” said John Pfeifer, Mercury Marine president.

The new 400hp engine - built on Mercury’s proven L6SC Verado platform - is suitable for a wide range of applications including blue-water fishing boats, larger sport boats, center consoles and pontoons.

Boat lovers will appreciate the new engine’s added power while enjoying the smooth and quiet operation for which Verado outboards are widely known. Weighing just 303 kilograms, the same as the 350hp Verado, the newest Verado is the lightest outboard in the 400+ HP category by more than 130 kgs.

The 400hp Verado will exclusively use the 5.44” 1.75 HD (heavy duty) gearcase and is compatible with Mercury Joystick Piloting for Outboards. It will be available in the same model variations as the 350hp Verado with colour options of Phantom Black and Cold Fusion.

Mercury’s belief in the all-new 400hp Verado is clearly reflected in its 3+3=6 year outboard warranty - providing engine owners with an additional three years of factory-backed protection against failures caused by defects in material or production.
