What I like about the new Mercs is that they get horsepower without having to use superchargers. Replacement superchargers are in the neighborhood of $5000. The other thing I like is that Mercury sells engines directly to their dealers much cheaper than Yamaha for repowering. Locally, we can get a 150 FourStroke $2000 cheaper than a F150. Saying that, we are very well satisfied with our F150.
