With the release of the first MerCruiser sterndrive at the Chicago Boat Show in 1961, Mercury Marine founder Carl Kiekhaefer forever changed the boating industry. Until then, outboards were the standard in marine engines, but Kiekhaefer's sterndrive allowed boaters to maintain outboard-like maneuverability in a package that offered unprecedented recreational boating power. With its already stellar marine reputation, MerCruiser quickly captured a commanding majority of the recreational market. Now celebrating its 50th anniversary, MerCruiser continues to lead the industry, guided by the same trailblazing ethic that inspired Kiekhaefer's historic first sterndrive.

For a half century, MerCruiser has been synonymous with unrivaled sterndrive and inboard performance. It all starts with a diverse selection of engines ranging from 135 to 430 hp, and more than 20 unique drive systems including Alpha One - the most popular sterndrive in the world. With the most complete lineup in the industry crafted by expert engineers, you're certain to find a MerCruiser engine-drive combination perfect for your boating style. Mercury enhances these offerings with complementary marine innovations such as Axius, the intuitive joystick-control system, and the stalwart corrosion protection of MerCruiser SeaCore. With decades of industry leadership and an eye to the future, the MerCruiser legend continues to grow.

Over these five decades, MerCruiser has worked tirelessly to maintain and grow its reputation as the most trusted sterndrive brand on the planet. MerCruiser has been able to stay at the forefront of marine engineering by remaining true to its four brand pillars: an unmatched product lineup, innovative integrated technologies, reliable and durable engines and drives, and an unrivaled service network.

Every boater has unique values and expectations for their on-water pursuits. That's why MerCruiser is committed to offering the most complete gasoline sterndrive product selection in the industry. With a wide range of engines, each with even deeper features and options, MerCruiser prides itself on having propulsion and technology systems for every boating style.

Nobody else offers a more comprehensive selection of catalyzed engines than MerCruiser. From the wildly popular 3.0L all the way up to the 8.2L big block, only MerCruiser has had the insight and wherewithal to invest in this game-changing technology to ensure its availability on a global scale.

MerCruiser's 5.0L, 350 MAG (5.7L) and 377 MAG (6.2L) sterndrives bring proven V8 durability to the table. Their robust, efficient design optimizes acceleration and longevity.
