MERCURY RACING 60R OUTBOARD — Over the weekend, at the Miami International Boat Show, Mercury Racing introduced their newest performance outboard, the 60R. The new 60R is a lighter and more compact design that will still deliver great acceleration for an instant plane in the skinny waters. The outboard fits perfectly on a 15″ transom, therefore making it ideal for most flats boats. With it’s lower center of gravity it gives boaters greater handling and stability when out on the water. It can accommodate a lower poling platform while eliminating the need for a jack plate or flared transom.
- Four-cylinder, 1.0-liter long-stroke powerhead tuned for torque by Mercury Racing.
- WOT range is extended to 6300 rpm to maximize acceleration and enable more propping options.
- Single overhead camshaft cylinder head keeps the powerhead as light and slim as possible for less intrusion on the transom.
- Powerful 18-amp alternator is designed to maintain battery charge on boats equipped with angling electronics and baitwell pumps.
The 4.25-inch diameter, high-thrust gearcase accommodates a robust 2.33:1 gear ratio to handle up to 20 percent more prop-blade area than a standard gearcase, and is shaped to provide added lift aft to further boost hole-shot performance and confident handling at speed. Best of all, the 60R is backed by a three-year factory warranty, with an option to purchase up to five additional years of Mercury Product Protection.
