Continuing the legacy of the Verado brand, Mercury has recreated the outboard performance to deliver ultimate boating experiences. With the awesome appeal of a V12 powerhead, the 600hp outboard delivers fantastic range and performance to take boating adventures to new places. Advancements in handling and control by the outboard segment’s first steerable gear-case and a groundbreaking two-speed transmission. Quiet, smooth and powerful, this is the engine that elevates the standards of premium design and engineering.
Automatic 2 speed Transmission
The 2-speed transmission makes light work of transferring 600hp to the gear-case. It pours out maximum torque and acceleration in first gear then silently shifts to second gear for efficient cruising and thrilling top speed. No shift clunk. No limitations. Only smooth, impressive power.
The first V12 outboard powerhead delivers top-notch horsepower and performance in a surprisingly compact footprint. Combined with the steerable gearcase and simple, streamlined rigging, the design allows the engine to mount on 27-inch centers, so boaters can fit as much power as they need on the transom.
Electro-hydraulic controls allow the steerable gearcase to maneuver instantly to driver commands. With no movement from the engine above water, there are no distractions – only precise maneuverability around the docks and smooth, easy handling across the open waters.
A new series of dual props were expertly crafted to harness the full potential of 600hp. Designed to run in a contra-rotating configuration, the new propellers power the boat on plane swiftly and efficiently, while delivering exceptional handling and fuel economy at mid-range speeds.
Ridiculously Smooth & Quiet
A rugged and refined next-gen Advanced MidSection (AMS) mounting system cradles the power-head to reduce noise and vibration, while precise tuning dampens induction sounds and nearly eliminates injection noise. 600hp never sounded so quiet.
Test boat: 43-foot, 22,000-pound day boat
The result is 20% better fuel economy at identical cruise speed and 24% better fuel economy at top speed with two 600hp Verado outboards versus triple 425hp outboards from the leading competitor.
