Quieter Than the Competition.
The Mercury 80 FourStroke is quieter than a competitive 80hp four-stroke across the rpm band.
- At idle, the Mercury is four decibels quieter than the competition – the competitive outboard is 25% louder.
- At cruising speed, where normal conversations occur, the competitive outboard generates almost 15% more noise.
- At wide-open-throttle, the Mercury is more than eight decibels quieter – the competitive outboard is 50% louder.
Powerful & Efficient
Less weight and high displacement mean Mercury’s new 75 – 115 FourStrokes generate abundant torque and immediate power. Because they don’t have to work as hard as heavier engines or those with lower displacement, these engines make boats plane faster, accelerate better and provide optimal fuel efficiency at cruising speed.
Lightweight & Fuel Efficient
Mercury’s world-renowned engineering team has packed incredible power into these lighter, compact four-cylinder single-overhead-cam engines. The 80hp weighs 20 pounds less than its closest four-stroke competitor, making it the world’s lightest low-emissions outboard in its power range.
The larger Command Thrust gearcase creates a bigger footprint in the water, which provides more leverage to control your boat. The 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.
Smoother Than the Competition.
The Mercury 80 FourStroke has less vibration and rides smoother than a competitive 80hp four-stroke.
- At forward idle, the Mercury’s vibration level at the driver’s seat is up to 50% lower than the competitive outboard.
- On the transom, the competitive outboard puts out nearly five times more vibration than the Mercury – both at cruise and at full throttle.
