The Mariner 60 hp EFI engines provide enhanced SmartCraft capability a comprehensive boat and propulsion monitoring system, supplying detailed engine status and performance data for virtually all engine functions such as trim, speed, rpm, troll control, fuel flow and for a wealth of boat functions, like fuel level, battery voltage.
SmartCraft also provides Engine Guardian by protecting your engine by constantly monitoring engine sensors and providing early indication of the unlikely event that the engine in not operating as designed, and pro-actively taking corrective action
Mariner's 6 hp to 6 hp full SmartCraft capability also provide a possibility to upgrade with an optional Theft Deterrence Syste (TDS) or Mariner's advanced Active Trim system.
Mariner's optional Big Tiller popularity has increased for use on open inflatables, ribs and fibreglass boats where the longer tiller
grip with convenient mounted power trim switch for easy access is easy and safe to operate at your fingertips. Sport fishers like the optional slow speed (troll) control feature that allows for setting the slow boat-speed precisely at the speed the fish will bite.
Less weight combined with high displacement ensures these FourStroke outboards provide maximum fuel efficiency, especially at cruising speeds. Specialised oil scrapers and bearings minimise friction in the crankshaft to deliver increased fuel efficiency
The Mariner 60 Command Thrust model(s) have a taller gearcase, oversized prop and lower gear ratio, they deliver more thrust and control than any other outboard of comparable horsepower. Increased thrust is delivered by a 2.33:1 gear ratio with 44 % larger gears.
The single overhead cam configuration and long stroke design of Mariner's 40-60hp FourStrokes increases torque for excellent acceleration, even with heavy loads. Additionally, the compact design of these FourStrokes coupled with a high output alternator makes these outboard engines exceptionally popular.
