The Trophy Boats range are powered by Mercury engines, which range from the 2-stroke Optimax engines (90-225hp), the four-strokes (100-115hp), the Verado four-strokes (135-300hp) and finally Mercruiser (135-260hp).


Thanks to legendary direct-fuel-injected technology, which combines awesome acceleration and staggering top-end speed with clean, quiet, fuel-saving operation, OptiMax is the perfect choice for almost any use.

The picture looks even better with the introduction of upgraded “next generation” motors which feature new styling, even lower sound levels and on the 3.0 litre models, a new gearcase. Enough to confirm the belief that the OptiMax is the best DFI engine ever built and for this range to top the J.D. Power and Associates customer satisfaction index for two-stroke outboards.


If you’re looking for clean, quiet, reliable power, nothing performs like Mercury four-strokes. That’s because no other engines offer the same combination of smooth, smoke-free operation; proven technology and unparalleled corrosion resistance. And no engines offer the same heritage of tournament-winning power.


From the proven six-cylinder model to the brawny new four-cylinder, Verado delivers pinned-to-the-seat power and the quietest, smoothest performance of any outboard ever built. Additionally, Verado’s engineered driving experience provides ultimate control, response and durability.

It’s your call. With horsepower ratings from 135 to 275 hp, including the new 175 hp model, Verado can supply all the fun and excitement you can handle.


Every new petrol multi-port fuel injected (MPI) sterndrive comes complete with the performance-enhancing SmartCraft® technology which monitors and fine-tunes your engine for maximum efficiency thanks to features such as multi-port fuel injection and Engine Guardian™. The result is a powerful combination of protection and performance.

Mercury MerCruiser's highly responsive, carburetted petrol power is available on the universally popular sterndrive models 3.0L/135 hp and 4.3L/190 hp, all with excellent power-to-weight ratios. These carburettor MerCruisers are outstanding value per horsepower.
