It’s a reflection of Mercury Racing’s high standards and dedication to continue our leadership position in the marine industry.
All high performance engines require frequent maintenance and inspection schedules due to the extreme duty cycles and related stress these products endure. Owners are encouraged to follow the detailed maintenance and service schedule as written and supplied by Mercury Racing. Doing so will keep your high performance engine running at peak performance.
Mercury Racing consumer performance outboards and sterndrives are backed by limited factory warranties for recreational boating. An additional one-year limited Mercury Product Protection Plan warranty is available for the OptiMax 225 Sport XS, 250XS and 300XS outboards.
