The sensation of flying along the surface of your local lake or river is exhilarating, but it requires careful planning unless you want to spend some time with Davey Jones. For the discerning speedboat owner, a Mercury 4-stroke outboard motor is the most trusted brand for quality and performance. Mercury Marine originated in 1939, in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Its founder was committed to excellence in engines, and that ethic shines through to the current line of products. Weekend boaters looking for a bit of wet fun favor engines ranging from 15 to 75 horsepower, but the flagship products are those from the Mercury Racing outboard division. The Mercury 250 Optimax Pro XS, for example, is a top-of-the-line engine. It boasts 250 horsepower while using a 25-foot propeller shaft. Mercury introduced the Verado system that allows one to throttle and steer the engines remotely, for ultimate convenience and precise control of speed and direction. Among the vast inventory on eBay, you are sure to find a variety of Mercury 4-stroke outboard motors that can get you skimming across the water in no time.Shop the extensive inventory of motors, parts, accessories, including complete Mercury outboard engines!
