    Mercury Serial Number HELP

    OT998385

    Here is all I can find:

    HIGH PERFORMANCE DFI 20" STD TM RH 2.0:1 2.5 XS L TM

    How can I find the year and HP?

    Thank you in advance
    .

    I've bought and sold 22 boats in 26 years. I fix them up and then get bored and look for another. It's a hobby.

    Now running a Liberator 21 with a 300xs

    Shows a manufacturer date of 9/24/2004. Optimax Model number is 1922476DH. Looking for that model number shows rated at 168kw or 225 hp.

    So I'd guess 225xs

    No. The merc racing 225 2.5 was available one or two years if I remember right. It's a 2.5 opti with 6800 rpm limiter on a 3.0 mid. Im going by the limited info and memory though so I'm sure someone smart will have a better answer

    Thanks for helping narrow it down.

    I researched it last night. Only built in 1 year, 2005. 225 HP / 6800 limiter. Has a 3L bass mid and a coned TM 2:1. Also would come with a fresh 1.87:1 SM.

    Everything I could find was positive. Opinions seemed to think the motor makes closer to 240 HP.

    It has 70 hours. Clean as new. What's it worth realistically being so "unique"?
