MAX5

Performance boat builders and dealers are finding the Sport Master gearcase enables them to achieve significantly higher boat speeds by allowing Verado 400R outboards to be run at higher transom heights than models fitted with a production style case. To date, maximizing efficiency of the surfacing, low water pickup gear housing had only been limited by propeller slip.  Customers have been eager to find a solution to take full advantage of the Sport Master’s capabilities.

Introducing the all-new Mercury Racing MAX5. This custom five blade wheel, developed and hand-crafted by the Mercury Racing Propeller Lab, is custom designed for single and multiple Verado 400R Sport Master applications.  The Lab Finished MAX5 provides a measurable reduction in propeller slip, (up to a staggering 12% in some applications).

The 15-inch diameter MAX5 is offered in a pitch range of 23 to 34 inches in one-half inch increments. The one-half inch pitch offerings enable engines to be dialed-in to their maximum rpm operating range for enhanced throttle response, optimized cruise fuel efficiency and top speed. The stainless steel prop features the Mercury patented Performance Vent System® (PVS). PVS® enables the user to fine-tune the amount of venting needed for quick planing.
