Mercury Marine was founded in 1939 when engineer Carl Kiekhaefer purchased a small outboard motor company in Cedarburg, WI. Kiekhaefer's original intention for the Kiekhaefer Corporation was to make magnetic separators for the dairy industry. The purchase included 300 defective outboard motors. Kiekhaefer and a small staff of employees rebuilt the motors and sold them to Montgomery Ward, a mail-order company. The motors were much improved so the buyer purchased more. Kiekhaefer designed motors that withstood the elements better than his competition and called the motor Mercury after the Roman god. Kiekhaefer took more than 16,000 orders at the 1940 New York Boat Show.

Over the years, Mercury has provided such innovations as the MerCruiser stern-drive line which later took over 80 percent of the world market, electronic ignition and electronic fuel injection for outboards.  

Carl Kiekhaefer resigned as President of Kiekhaefer Mercury in 1969, and the name was changed to Mercury Marine.

Today they manufacture four stroke outboard engines ranging from 2.5 hp to 350 hp. They provide engines for private, commercial and government sales, primarily for small boats. There are four distinct model offerings including the FourStroke, Opti-Max, Pro-XS and Verado.

FourStroke. Forget everything you know about FourStroke outboards. Ours change the game. Completely. They’re tougher, smaller, and lighter than any other FourStroke on the water. With a combination of performance and efficiency, they will take your time on the water to a whole new level. Available in 2.5 hp to 150 hp. Check out the FourStroke Family 

Opti-Max and Pro-XS. OptiMax offers the time-proven power, reliability and fuel efficiency that only the Mercury-exclusive two-stage Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) can deliver. Outstanding hole shot and acceleration, impeccable handling at any speed. Even with all this, it’s still your best value on the water.

For people who demand speed and acceleration from their outboards, the OptiMax Pro XS is the only choice. Mercury engineers leveraged the Mercury Racing heritage to develop this family of high-performance, direct Injected outboards. The result is an outboard family that blows away the competition when it comes to power, durability, performance and fuel efficiency. Available in 115 hp to 250 hp. Check out the OptiMax® & Pro XS™ Family
