OptiMax’s durable gearcase features a heavy-duty prop shaft and Mercury-patented dual water pickups on the front end of the torpedo for a constant flow of cooling water. It is specifically designed to give you impeccable handling and incredible top speeds. Dome-Shaped Piston Heads direct the fuel-and-air charge to the spark plug more efficiently, providing outstanding durability along with excellent running quality.
OptiMax is built with more stainless steel and corrosion-resistant components, which translates to saltwater durability, longer intervals between maintenance, and lower cost of ownership. In addition, our lower-pressure direct-injection system also provides superior component durability and longevity.
