MERCURY 200 OPTIMAX IS NOW EU CERTIFIED
GO WHERE OTHERS CAN’T.
The Mercury Sport Jet is the perfect power option when you need to get into the shallows.
Thanks to its unique engineering, the Mercury Sport Jet offers you unparalleled maneuverability.
Without props or skegs to get snagged on underwater obstructions, your boat can move easily
into areas that outboard- or sterndrive-powered boats can’t get near.And at 200 horsepower, the
Mercury Sport Jet can do more than take you to the secluded fishing holes. It’s got power to
spare for water activities like skiing or tubing.
YOUR BEST FISHING BUDDY.
The Mercury Sport Jet features award-winning OptiMax Direct Injection technology –
providing instant turn-key starting, no-smoke operation, outstanding fuel economy and excellent
power. Plus, it’s incredibly easy to use and maintain. Mercury offers three different grate options
that allow you to customize your jet outboard based on how you use your boat. From weedy
areas to rocky river bottoms, Mercury has you covered. The Mercury Sport Jet also features a
self-draining cooling system – which means less work at the dock and more fun on the water.

The 200 OptiMax Sport Jet offers
Mercury’s award-winning two-stage
Direct Injection fuel system. OptiMax
provides instant turn-key starting, no-
smoke operation, outstanding fuel
economy and excellent power.
The Mercury 200 Sportjet is standard equipped with 4 blade impeller, (optional high skew
The standard impeller provides overall good performance in most hulls. The High Skew
offers a slightly better hole shot, less cavitation in frothy water, and a longer service life.
Note: Unlike a propeller drive, a jet system can develop full HP at a standstill, the impeller
used in the Mercury Sportjet gives rated RPM at full throttle, a Jet system can theoretically
develop up to maximum rated RPM even when the boat is tied to the dock. It is not possible to
use a different pitch size impeller for heavy or light loads; the impeller pitch chosen will provide
rated RPM at full throttle regardless of the weight of the boat. RPM hardly varies between a
heavy load and running fast with a light load.
The Mercury Sportjet will perform best in light boat applications varying between 18 & 21
