CXO300 300hp Diesel Outboard

The CXO300 is a revolutionary new 300hp diesel outboard engine and is appearing in New Zealand for the first time at the 2018 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show.

Combining the power and torque of a diesel engine with the flexibility of an outboard, the result is a powerful, professional, commercial diesel engine with enhanced levels of efficiency and reliability.

Delivering 300hp at the propeller with 550nm of torque and said to last three times longer than an average petrol-powered outboard, the CXO300 has been designed specifically for commercial, government and military use.

Mercury’s new V6 range

Debuting in the Southern Hemisphere for the first time at the 2018 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show Mercury’s all new V6 FourStroke outboard family includes the 175hp, 200hp and 225hp FourStroke outboards and a V6 200hp SeaPro commercial outboard.

All four outboards are built on Mercury’s new 3.4‑litre V6 platform, which is designed to be powerful, light, compact and fuel-efficient. It employs a large displacement, naturally aspirated powerhead and proven mid‑section and drive-system designs. The versatile 3.4L V6 outboards offer the option of mechanical or digital controls, hydraulic or power steering, and black or white cowls on FourStroke-branded products, as well as a variety of accent panel colours.

The new FourStroke engine not only provides large displacement at 200hp, but is also exceptionally light weight at 215kgs. Lean and mean, the 3.4L V6 FourStroke platform boasts Mercury’s best acceleration and 20% percent more torque. Fuel efficiency is also unmatched.

  • A top cowl service door which provides easy oil check and fill for easier routine maintenance
  • Idle charge battery-management capability that protects against battery-drain while operating multiple electronic devices, along with net charging output of 20 Amp at 650 RPM
  • Adaptive Speed Control that maintains RPM regardless of load or condition changes, improving the driving experience

Mercury’s new 150 Pro XS

Also making its Southern hemisphere debut at the show is the new Mercury 150 Pro XS.

Building on the success of the Mercury 115 Pro XS FourStroke, the new 150 Pro XS offers superior hole shot, top-end speed and durability. An ideal fit for performance‑oriented boating, recreational, fishing and competition applications, the new 150 Pro XS is said to be the quickest, lightest and most advanced high‑output outboard in its class.

Advantages include:

  • 0-30km/h heavy‑load acceleration
  • Just 207kgs weight
  • 3-litre displacement
  • Mercury’s exclusive Transient Spark Technology optimising spark timing, resulting in additional torque during hole shot and quicker acceleration
  • Increased maximum engine RPM from 5,800 to 6,000 allows for a wider selection of propeller pitches and the ability to dial-in performance for superior hole shot or top speed
  • 5% more fuel‑efficiency than the 2.5L OptiMax 150 Pro XS
