Mercury Marine’s Avator outboards

The full range of Avator electric outboards is now available for purchase from Mercury dealers.

All three outboard models – the Avator 7.5e, 20e and 35e – hit the market late 2023.

Mercury Marine Australia New Zealand Pacific senior marketing manager Anthony Brown said, “Since we launched the Avator 7.5e to the market at the beginning of 2023, the excitement and interest in our first electric outboard engine far exceeded our expectations.”

“We are thrilled to now be able to deliver the full range of Avator outboards and look forward to seeing them on the water.”

Avator outboards transform the boating experience, delivering a smoother and quieter ride with no exhaust fumes and zero direct emissions.

The Avator series is designed for exceptional ease of storage and transportation, thanks to its quick-connect bracket, which enhances portability and allows for effortless installation.

This versatility makes setting up a breeze, perfect for those who cannot wait to hit the water.

Following months of anticipation, all three outboard models – the Avator 7.5e, 20e and 35e – are now available.


The 7.5e model delivers speed and acceleration performance comparable to a Mercury 3.5hp FourStroke motor, while the 20e offers acceleration similar to a 5hp FourStroke outboard, and the 35e, a 9.9hp FourStroke.

The Avator outboards come with the option of tiller or remote steering and are well-suited for powering small vessels, including aluminium fishing boats, micro skiffs, rigid inflatables, tenders and small pontoons.

In addition to the availability of Avator outboards, the 7.5e model’s 1kWh lithium-ion battery and the 20e and 35e models 2300Wh lithium-ion batteries will also be available to purchase.

The 7.5e model’s 1kWh lithium-ion battery is a game-changer, requiring no cable connections allows the battery to conveniently slide into place under the flip-up top cowl, saving valuable space within the boat.

For those wanting extended journeys, spare batteries can be swapped in seconds, ensuring uninterrupted fun on the water.

The 35e offers the ability to connect to multiple Avator batteries.


The 20e and 35e models up the ante, offering more power and the ability to connect multiple Avator batteries using a ‘power centre’ for extended range and run time.

The 35e offers the ability to connect to multiple Avator batteries.

The power centre serves as a central hub for power cable connections, allowing for a clean and organised boat installation, able to connect to up to four batteries.

The Avator series is Mercury’s next step forward in marine innovation and is part of its commitment to being a leader in electric propulsion.
