New Design Maximizes Mercury Racing 300R Outboard Performance

FOND DU LAC, Wis. (June 9, 2020) – The new Mercury Racing 300HP 5-Blade CNC
Cleaver propellers are designed expressly to maximize the performance of 300-hp
outboards. This new surface-piercing propeller features a proprietary blade profile that
delivers stronger acceleration and more top-end speed than the Mercury Racing 400HP
CNC Cleaver prop when run on the Mercury Racing 300R outboard as well as the
legacy Mercury Racing 300XS and 300X outboard models.

“While mainly aimed at twin-outboard catamaran applications, this new propeller design
will also take single-engine, padded-vee bottom and tunnel boats to a new level of
performance,” said Steve Miller, Mercury Racing director of marketing, sales, and
service. “There’s no room for error when driving these high-performance boats and
that’s the approach we take when building propellers.”

The CNC machining process offers unparalleled benefits compared to standard cast
propellers. Pitch, diameter, and rake are perfectly true on every Mercury Racing CNC
propeller to ensure that lift, handling, and speed characteristics are absolutely
consistent. Designed to make the most of the Sport Master gearcase and elevated
engine heights, the 300-HP 5-Blade Cleaver prop dramatically reduces slip percentages
in outboard Sport Master applications, averaging 4.5 percent at WOT.

Thousands of pitch, rake and diameter combinations are available to dial in the
maximum performance of almost any boat. Each CNC Cleaver propeller is custom
made to order. Diameter range is 14.5 to 15.5 inches, pitch range is 26 to 40 inches in
one-inch increments, with a choice of 15-degree or 18-degree rake.

All Mercury Racing propellers carry a one-year warranty that covers the propeller in its
entirety and any damage done to other parts if a failure does occur. All CNC Cleaver
props are shipped in a molded plastic Mercury Racing CNC case.
