2022 Mercury Marine® Verado 400
A Smooth Operator

The smooth, refined power of a V-8 4.6-liter powerhead delivers exhilarating acceleration and top speed to run offshore with confidence, while its generous displacement and robust design provide uncompromising durability and reliability. The Mercury-exclusive Advanced MidSection (AMS) and under-cowl noise management set the standard for smooth, quiet marine propulsion. These exciting new V-8 Verado outboards are wrapped in crisp, bold styling that makes an unmistakable statement on any transom.

The inherently balanced in-line six-cylinder engine and our Advanced Mid Section (AMS) with perimeter mounts virtually eliminate vibration in the boat. Perfect for sneaking up on fish or cruising on luxury pontoons.
