Spitfire XP propeller is designed to be the ultimate prop for the Mercury Racing 60R outboard. Created to specifically match the power curve, gear ratio and gearcase shape of the Mercury Racing 60R outboard, the Spitfire XP has a four-blade design and long barrel that combine to deliver the lightning-fast hole shot shallow-water anglers desire.

Engine Information and Specifications

60r ob rear 3 4 port


The 60R is a lightweight, compact outboard tuned and geared to deliver amazing hole-shot acceleration for instant on-plane performance in skinny water.

  • Four-cylinder, 1.0-liter long-stroke powerhead tuned for torque by Mercury Racing.
  • WOT range is extended to 6300 rpm to maximize acceleration and enable more propping options.
  • Single overhead camshaft cylinder head keeps the powerhead as light and slim as possible for less intrusion on the transom.
  • Powerful 18-amp alternator is designed to maintain battery charge on boats equipped with angling electronics and baitwell pumps.

The 4.25-inch diameter, high-thrust gearcase accommodates a robust 2.33:1 gear ratio to handle up to 20 percent more prop-blade area than a standard gearcase, and is shaped to provide added lift aft to further boost hole-shot performance and confident handling at speed.

The Mercury Racing 60R fits perfectly on a 15-inch transom. Compared to competing 20-inch motors the Mercury Racing 60R offers a lower center of gravity for better boat handling and stability. It can accommodate a lower poling platform while eliminating the need for a jack plate or flared transom.

Best of all, the 60R is backed by a three-year factory warranty, with an option to purchase up to five additional years of Mercury Product Protection.
