Only on the 225 and below, I think.

In my line of work these days its all about "how many horses can we nail on the back of this thing without something breaking?" So 200HP engines are not something I deal with regularly.

I'm guessing the manufacturing cost with the inclusion of the supercharger isnt leaving the margin they're looking for.

From a totally biased point of view I've been running a 4 Stroke 150 Merc since March and it's got about 120hrs on it now....absolutely love it. Quieter than the Honda was (and the Honda wasn't bad) faultless, bags of torque and almost unbelievable fuel economy.....

the name verado is staying but the supercharger is not long term if you read what some merc folks are saying.

i would need to double check but i think only the 350 and 400 is supercharged now in the current verado range and both of those are for the chop in the not too distant, some are saying a V10 is coming to get upto 500hp to compete for the big transom market in USA.

if this was me i'd get the merc v8 for 300hp.

Got to agree with LT I have had a Merc 150 hp 4 st on for three years replaced my Mariner V6 150 smoker and I have been most impressed with the performance and torque. Great engine.

The Verado 300hp is no longer available, you can now only by the verado ( supercharged version) in 350/400hp. The V8 is the only 300hp Mercury. How ever the demand is so high for this engine you probably wonít get one until May or June next year!
