FOND DU LAC, Wis. – Mercury Marine has announced the global introduction of its new 75 – 150hp SeaPro FourStroke engines, designed to provide increased durability and longer engine life in commercial applications without sacrificing power.
The 150hp SeaPro will be available in Europe and Africa by mid-January, and is currently available in North America, Central America, the Caribbean and parts of South America.
The 75, 90 and 115hp SeaPro engines will be available globally in early March.
SeaPro engines, with robust high displacement and low-weight design, deliver the performance required by commercial users and provide three times the engine durability as recreational engines. All SeaPro engines feature higher-durometer upper mounts that help extend engine life and decrease lifecycle costs.
“Mercury’s newest mid-range FourStroke outboard engines have already developed a reputation as the best four-stroke outboards for commercial applications in their categories,” said Marty Bass, vice president of Mercury category management. “With SeaPro we have taken theses engines to the next level of reliability and durability with outstanding performance. That translates to increased ‘up-time’ and better business performance for commercial operators.
“Additionally, these engines deliver the outstanding fuel economy that is inherent to four-stroke technology.”
Mercury’s larger Command Thrust gearcase, which creates a bigger footprint in the water and provides more leverage to control the boat, is standard on the 75, 90 and 115hp SeaPro models. Its larger torpedo, combined with a bigger-diameter prop, can lift a heavy boat onto plane more easily and hold it there at lower speeds without impacting top speed.
All SeaPro models feature extended warranty compared to standard engines and are backed by the best service network in the industry. A pictorial Owner’s Manual and pictorial under-cowl maintenance decals simplify ownership.
SeaPro engines come packaged with a water-separating fuel filter and SC1000 SystemTach to offer the commercial user a complete engine package. The gearcase oil drain is in the torpedo. The recommended engine oil is 25W40.
