Mercruiser Bravo Sterndrives

The latest Mercury Bravo 2002 model drives, serial number 0M10----- and above have an improved upper gear set with thicker floors and heavy duty thrust bearings. These gears are available to upgrade earlier drives. See the details at the left. This is the same gear set (aside from the input shaft) used on the X and XZ drives.

In 2006 Mercury redesigned the Bravo upper gear housing. We call it the swept-back housing. The new housing is more rigid and has improved & quieter shift characteristics.

In addition to the Bravo I, II and III the X, XZ and XR drives are all in stock.
