Mercury Marine took the wrapper off a totally new 150 four-stroke on the first day of the 2012 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, and unlike the Verado line, this outboard relies on high displacement for its oomph.

It has a relatively large 3.0-liter displacement block, yet it is also the lightest and smallest 150 four-stroke on the market – 20 pounds lighter than the next lightest.

It is also the only 150 with an oil cooler. Its 60-amp alternator is the most powerful for the growing number of electronics on saltwater fishing boats today.

I believe this is a great engine for repower, as it uses cable throttle and shift, yet also easily adapts to SmartCraft gauges.

A 20-step paint process helps protect the engine from corrosion, and the 4.9-inch gear case is extremely rugged.

Simplicity and durability are hallmarks of this outboard. To learn more, visit www.mercurymarine.com.
