OREANDA-NEWS. February 15, 2016. More than 1 second quicker than Mercurys standard 115 FourStroke. The ability to run lower-pitch props puts the boat on plane quicker, reducing 0-to-20mph acceleration time by 1 to 2 seconds. This enables anglers to carry more gear onboard and provides an edge in getting back to the

       tournament dock for weigh-in.

       Higher full-throttle rpm: Increasing engine rpm from 6000 to 6300 allows prop pitch to be reduced, resulting in maximum performance benefits.

       Idle-Charge: This new feature provides up to 48% more battery charging at idle speed to support the greater power demands of todays sophisticated marine electronics and accessories. Whats more, it lets boaters and anglers safely stay out on the water longer.

In addition, the new 115 Pro XS offers the following industry-exclusive options for high-output outboard engine models:

       25-inch shaft available in addition to the standard 20-inch shaft makes this engine an ideal option to power or repower a wide range of boats, from 17- to 20-foot saltwater flats and bay boats to 17- to 18-foot aluminum and fiberglass bass boats, as well as aluminum multispecies hulls in the same size range.

       The available Command Thrust gearcase makes this engine compatible with Mercurys larger-diameter propellers that help the engine deliver improved performance and lift heavy boats onto plane easier and hold them there at lower speeds.

As a member of the powerful Mercury Pro XS family, the new 115 Pro XS also delivers these unparalleled benefits:

       Ease of maintenance: Boaters and anglers can spend less time servicing the engine and more time on the water.

       Superior protection against corrosion: Mercurys industry-leading ultra-low copper content alloys help create an outboard built to withstand the elements.

       Mercurys industry-leading three-year warranty, standard.

On top of that, the new 115hp Pro XS boasts an exciting new look!

Experience the new Mercury 115 Pro XS FourStroke at the Miami International Boat Show at the Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin, Booth F113 in the F-Tent, and on the water for testing at the Mercury slips.
