Saltwater can take its toll on marine propulsion systems. This is why the SeaCore™ system from MerCruiser® offers more than just improved corrosion resistance. It’s as close as a marine propulsion system can come to being corrosion-proof.
In developing the revolutionary SeaCore system, we’ve moved the entire industry forward in a way that makes other saltwater engines and drives seem instantly inferior. Rather than just enclosing the drive components in a plastic shell, we protect them all the way to the core with industrial hardcoat anodizing, a closed-cooling system and widespread use of stainless steel components. All of which makes for the ultimate in corrosion protection.
Unique six-step coating and painting process and the hardcoat anodizing of Mercury's exclusive XK 360 low-copper aluminum parts changes the molecular structure of the surface, making it extremely durable and corrosion resistant. If scratched, the surface inhibits continued corrosion. It's particularly useful for large runabouts, cruisers and performance boats that stay in harsh saltwater environments. The freshwater flush system is engine-mounted.
The 5.0 MPI is one of our most popular engine choices. With 260 hp, it provides excellent power for tow sports, larger runabouts and cruisers. Its proven V-8 base engine delivers year-after-year performance and reliability. All our V8 Bravo Multi-Port Injection (MPI) sterndrive models are available with optional Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS)**. DTS eliminates cable maintenance and provides consistent silky-smooth shifting.
DTS eliminates all helm maintenance and provides silky-smooth shifts for the life of the product. DTS automatically synchronizes multiple engines, provides shift protection and provides SmartStart digital starting. DTS commands can be made from up to three helms to as many as four engines.
