2016 Mercury 6HP
Power Tender and Skiffs. Effortlessly.
57 pounds of agile performance.
- Lightweight: Weighing just 38 and 57 pounds, respectively, our 2.5 - 3.5hp and 4 - 6hp FourStroke outboards are easy to lift and carry.
- Generate Power: Convenience and performance you can count on. 4 amp alternator to charge a battery: exhaust relief holes and 6" prop for improved handling when reversing heavy boats; even an added rectifier to power small external lights. A 5hp FourStroke that powers your boat.
- Shallow Water: Multiple trim positions enhance performance and enable shallow-water operation.
- Easy to Start: Automatic decompression bleeds off cylinder pressure to reduce the pulling force required to start the engine.
- Quiet: Through-prop exhaust on all Mercury® 4 - 6hp FourStrokes exits underwater for quiet operation.
- Fueling Options: Mercury® 4, 5 and 6hp FourStrokes feature integral fuel tanks with an external fuel-shutoff valve, as well as a fuel-tank cap on top of the cowl. For extended range, these engines also can be connected to a remote fuel tank placed in the boat.
