Fond du Lac, Wisc. – Mercury Marine’s all-new 400hp Verado outboard engine has been selected as a 2019 Top Product by Boating Industry. The award, which was officially announced today, honors Mercury for its commitment to innovation. The engine, which was officially launched at the 2019 Miami International Boat Show, is the company’s highest horsepower Verado-branded outboard engine in its portfolio. Since the launch of the 350hp Verado and the Mercury Racing 400R four years ago, consumers have been requesting a higher horsepower Verado engine, and the response for the engine since its launch in Miami has exceeded expectations. Said Chris Drees, Mercury Marine president. “We were honored to win for our V6 last year and thrilled to win in 2019 for our 400hp outboard. I’ve heard fantastic feedback over the past few months, starting with Miami taking us all the way through boating season.
Consumers have been looking for an extension of our Verado platform, and our engineers developed another product that will set a new benchmark in the marine industry.”
