Design creates a better boating experience

                

Los Angeles. DesignworksUSA, a subsidiary of BMW Group and creative consultancy, in collaboration withMercury Marine designed the new 75, 90 and 115hp FourStroke outboards, which offer the ultimate combination of power and thrust, unsurpassed fuel economy, extreme reliability and smooth, quiet operation – all in a lightweight, compact package. These engines are the new best choice for bass, deep-vee, runabout and offshore boats as well as pontoons and saltwater skiffs.

 

“DesignworksUSA created a design language for the Mercury FourStroke engine that was modern and dynamic in line with the Mercury family aesthetic,” said Laurenz Schaffer, President, BMW Group DesignworksUSA. “We leveraged our four decades of experience in transportation design to create a design solution relevant to this powerful and efficient product.”

 

Better Boating Experience  

DesignworksUSA utilized its 40 years of transportation design expertise to make a universally attractive engine that works well on all types of boats.  The style lines follow Mercury’s family look, incorporating modern surface treatment and proportions.  Together with the 150hp engine and award winning Mercury Marine electronic remote control, DesignworksUSA and Mercury Marine continue to create a better boating experience.

 

This new engine lineup was designed, engineered and manufactured to provide the smoothest, quietest ride. A tightly sealed top cowl and idle relief muffler system lessen high-frequency exhaust noise. A top-mounted throttle body fine-tunes intake noise, while the exclusive Focused Mount System greatly reduces vibration. Even the trim pump is designed to run significantly quieter, and a new clutch system reduces shock while shifting into gear. All of these features deliver a smoother, quieter, more pleasant boating experience in a modern and dynamic looking exterior package.

 

 

Despite their low profile and low weight – they’re 20 pounds lighter than the closest four-stroke competition – the new engines feature a 2.1-liter, four-cylinder, eight-valve, single-overhead-cam design that delivers more torque and horsepower than competing engines. The result is unmatched performance, reliability, handling and efficiency.

 

The new Mercury FourStroke engines are built with the same architecture as the extraordinarily reliable and extremely popular Mercury 150hp FourStroke also designed by DesignworksUSA in collaboration with Mercury Marine.
