Verado® Six-Cylinder 250 HP - 30 in. Shaft



Outrageous Power. Refined Experience.

A perfect balance of performance, fuel economy and driving experience.

  • Geared Right: The ultra-robust 5.44-inch-diameter gearcase is built for offshore seas and provides extra lift for longer, heavier center consoles and walkarounds.
  • World-Class Design: Our long-bolt design anchors the block and cylinder head to the bedplate and eliminates the effects of expansion and contraction. An exclusive oil cooler maintains optimal oil temperature to extend the life of the engine. In addition, the Verado valve train is maintenance-free for the life of the engine
  • Joystick Piloting for Outboards: With a simple push or twist of a joystick it’s possible to maneuver a boat in virtually any direction – sideways, diagonally or spinning the boat on its axis. Control dual, triple or quad Verado 250hp outboards, even in challenging wind and current conditions. This system integrates seamlessly with SmartCraft® Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) and electro-hydraulic power steering, while standard integrated autopilot provides Auto Heading and Waypoint Sequencing. Also available with Skyhook®, a digital GPS positioning system which can hold a boat in position while fishing or waiting for bridges to open.
  • Smoothest, quietest: The inherently balanced in-line six-cylinder engine and our Advanced Mid Section (AMS) with perimeter mounts virtually eliminate vibration in the boat. Perfect for sneaking up on fish or cruising on luxury pontoons.
  • Driving Experience: SmartCraft® Digital Throttle & Shift provides smooth, instantaneous, predictable and quiet shifting, as well as ultra-responsive throttle control, while true Power Steering (standard on six-cylinder models) delivers precision steering without undesirable steering torque. Mercury “shadow technology” eliminates the hassle of grappling with multiple engine levers when running with triple or quadruple outboards. Shadow mode controls up to four engines with just two levers from as many as two helm stations.
