Mercury Racing propeller specialists have enhanced the performance of the five-blade Maximus propeller to strategic Lab Finishing specifications for maximum performance.

    Technicians blueprint these popular propellers by thinning the blade surfaces in specific areas, modifying the leading and trailing edges and balancing the propeller for maximum efficiency.

  • Efficient

    Efficiency is second nature when it comes to Mercury Racing propellers. It equates to enhanced performance throughout the engine operating range while saving money at the pump.

The Maximus five-blade is one of the best performers for step bottom boats offering incredible slip reduction capabilities … translation, eye popping planing performance, jaw dropping mid-range speeds and with many applications increased top end speeds over the Bravo I propeller.

The Maximus is offered in 15.625″ diameter for go fast step Vee bottoms with high “X” dimension. The 15.25″ diameter is offered specifically for the Shorty Sport Master where gearcase clearance is critical. The 15″ diameter is a must for the awesome performance Cats and go fast party boats. Pitch range is 23″ through 35″ in one inch increments.

Mercury Racing offers  Lab Finished Maximus in short tube and long tube models. The shot tube was developed with high performance OEM boat builders including Fountain, Eliminator, Donzi, Outerlimits, Sunsation and many others. The shortened exhaust tube (some people refer to it as the diffuser ring or barrel) settles the stern of select hulls, resulting in a 2-4 mph increase in top-end speed. If you are running a standard long tube Maximus and you feel the stern of the boat is lifting, the propeller(s) could be the cause. Switch to short tube Maximus.

  • Designed to run 70+ MPH with medium bow lift
  • For 300 – 600 HP sterndrive vee, stepped vee & air entrapment hulls
