Mercury Racing Introduces 450R Outboard

Updated: Jul 10, 2019

The Lauderdale Marina engines team is thrilled to announce arrival of the all-new 450R outboard engine by Mercury Racing. Production is underway, but only a limited number of units will be produced in 2019. As such, there's a strict customer allocation plan which will be administered. Call Mercury specialist Robby DeVore at the Lauderdale Marina engine repower department (954-523-8507) to inquire.

Developed for discerning performance boating enthusiasts demanding unmatched power and performance, the 450R delivers outstanding power density at 450 propshaft horsepower from an outboard weighing as little as 689 pounds (313 Kg). Literally hundreds of pounds lighter than the nearest competitor, the new 450R delivers industry leading power-to-weight in a compact, efficient and sporty package. Best of all, the Mercury Racing 450R delivers all of its performance on readily available 89-octane (95 RON) pump fuel.

The 4.6-liter V8 FourStroke powerhead is boosted by an exclusive Mercury Racing supercharger to produce 450 peak propshaft horsepower and 40 percent higher torque than the powerful 400R. The carefully considered design and placement of the new supercharger and charge-air coolers allow the 450R to use the same slim-line cowl as the 300R model while incorporating higher flow intake vents. Like all Mercury Racing outboards, the 450R accommodates 26-inch center-to-center mounting on multi-engine transoms, perfect for optimizing use of transom space on new boats or re-power installations.

Multiple gearcase, control system, tie bar, and styling options are available to create the ultimate customized outboard performance package. The 450R is backed by a limited 3-year factory warranty with up to 5-years of Mercury Product Protection coverage available.

We’re very excited to bring this new powerhouse to market, once available, and we look forward to making this a reality for your new Boston Whaler boat or as a repower. Call Robby DeVore at 954-523-8507 for more information, or stop by the Lauderdale Marina parts department to learn more in person.
