The truth is simple – Mercury Marine’s OptiMax outboards excel when it comes to acceleration, top speed and fuel economy. So when you have all that, PLUS an unbeatable sales offer, now is the time to buy!

From 14th March to 30th April 2012, participating Mercury Marine dealers across Australia and New Zealand will be offering savings of up to $2,000* which make OptiMax outboards simply unbeatable value and that’s the Truth.

'The best way to judge if you’re getting value when you buy an outboard is to compare its performance against its rivals,' said Mercury Marine’s Outboard Director, Nicholas Webb.

'We’ve tested OptiMax engines head-to-head against other direct-injected outboards and OptiMax wins hands down. The cold hard facts are all there on our website.

'Now we’ve added some healthy savings into the mix – this offer ticks every box there is.'

With features like two-stage direct injection fuel system, ultra-reliable components and 'smart' electronics, OptiMax outboards give you the confidence to go as far as you like.
