About This Outboard

The award-winning 4.2-liter F300 is the king of our V6’s. Weighing in at only 562 pounds (digital) and 551 pounds (mechanical), it’s up to 73 pounds lighter than some competitors. Plus, it’s up to 19 percent faster at cruise RPM*. It’s easy to see why it’s the top choice for offshore performance.

  • Recommended fuel: 89 Octane
  • Shaft lengths available: 25”, 30” and 35” (35” on F300 DEC only)
