If you mean in HP, and available to the general public, then I would say it's a Mercury Promax 300X, produces in excess of 320hp at the powerhead!

The biggest outboard I have ever seen exists in Bordeau at the Conservatiore(boat museum). It is about 11/12ft tall, diesel powered and goes on the back of a barge. Dam economical on the back of a rib, twin installation likely to make a sinker.
