LOOKING FOR PERFORMANCE DATA?: If you’re looking at Verado outboards, you expect your engines to provide the finest, most enjoyable boating experience possible.
ADAPTIVE SPEED CONTROL: Whether you’re heading up a swell or into a tight turn, Adaptive Speed Control on V8 Verado outboards automatically maintains the set rpm even as load or conditions change. That means you make far fewer throttle adjustments.

Verado V8 outboards are calibrated to deliver full performance on 87-octane fuel.
JOYSTICK PILOTING FOR OUTBOARDS: Experience 360-degree control at your fingertips. Joystick Piloting for Outboards allows you to move sideways, diagonally or spin the boat on its own axis. Dock in close quarters. Easily load the boat on a trailer with a single hand on the joystick.
