    Mercury Give Us A V6 4 Stroke 225 Pro XS

    .............
    Hello .............. Mother Merc? You are building some great new stuff but why not give us a 200 and 225 Pro XS and not just the 175 Pro XS.

    You have the 87 octane V6 platform all ready to go. We need 475lbs of lower center of gravity fun with warranty. Come on Mercury

    Man I hope you are wrong. You can buy a "regular" V6 Four Stroke in 200 & 225. Maybe they will add the Pro XS bits and pieces. Would be a nice package.

    The V8 200 & 225 pro xs is only 35 more pounds than the 175 V6 pro xs which is not bad and turns 200 more rpms.

    ...........
    The V8 sits way to "tall" for smaller boats which hurts handling. The 4 stroke V6 is a little lighter as well as having plenty of 3.4L torgue for boats under 20'.

    Simple math says in F-1 trim the V-6 is 270 ish at the Prop
    A nicely done Production V-6 at 240-250 @ 7000 has a nice ring to it.

    forget the ProXS we really need a 200 or a 225 "R" with a sportmaster and solid mounts out of either the inline 4 or the V6 with the lightweight cowl and shave weight maybe a 15 mid to keep these under 500lb (the v6 is currently about 520lb despite advertisement wt and the v8 i believe around 560 or so) We basically need a replacement for the 200xs

    I'm with you all. Those would be some great motors. The sub 20 performance boats got kicked to the curb when Merc quit making the 2.5 performance engines.The V8s are great,just for bigger boats.

    My thought is that hopefully it's just a production line "nudge" to get Mercury to turn out a V6 200 and 225 Pro XS model above the 175 Pro XS.

    Not a lot of cost to Merc and adds a much needed option for the under 20' hulls for less than $20k with warranty.

    Mercury really has abandoned a market segment for sure. I bought my first performance boat this year. It’s a Allison SS2000 and I love it. However if I want to go with something newer then what? I have a good income but I will not be buying a twin 450r sport cat setup.

    Good info. Where does the 520lbs come from? Merc needs to buy a digital scale.

    If Mercury did offer a V6 200 or 225 with the option of a Sporty that would make an XS a winner IMO.

    apparently those motors are weighed by mercury for there advertisement weight without cowls, fluids or gear cases. A well know boat manufacturer weighed the motors on gave me that info. I did not personally weigh these motors.

    100% agree. The thing that is surprising is how easy they could revive the under 20' segment with just a few changes to there V6 product line.

    There are a lot of folks out there with $20k in the pocket who are running out of 2.5 parts IMO.
