MERCURY ENERTIA ECO PROPELLOR RELEASED FOR SALE

Mercury Eco Enertia Propellor

Addressing both increasing fuel costs and environmental stewardship, Mercury Marine has announced that the new Enertia ECO propeller has been released for sale to the Mercury Marine dealer network.

The Mercury Enertia ECO was specifically designed for high-horsepower outboard-powered boats, offering boaters a 10 percent increase in fuel economy at cruising speeds while also living up to the performance and reliability standards inherent with all Mercury propellers.

To maximize the fuel economy improvement provided by the Enertia ECO, Mercury Marine engineers designed a new propeller with a broad 16-inch diameter, large blade area and a high progressive rake, a combination made possible only through using Mercury’s proprietary X7 stainless steel alloy. This design and material combination results in a propeller that increases hull lift, ultimately making the boat more efficient by reducing overall drag.  While increasing fuel economy, the reduced drag has also proven to help lower planing speeds, increase top-end speed and improve holeshot performance.

At cruising speeds, the Enertia ECO posts a minimum of 10 percent fuel economy gain compared to Mercury’s already- efficient line of 135+ hp propellers.
