Mercury Marine showcases trim-control technology

Mercury Marine’s new 6.2-liter gasoline sterndrive engine (300 and 350 hp) was only part of the show at the manufacturer’s media on Lake Wylie, S.C. this week.

Five of the boats that the company made available for testing on Lake Wylie were equipped with Active Trim Control, a system that automatically adjusts engine drive trim angles for the best performance.

Coupled with Mercury’s Adaptive Speed Control technology, which holds engine rpm steady during turns and changing sea conditions, the boats illustrated the engine maker’s commitment to make boating easier, Mercury vice president of product development, engineering and racing David Foulkes said.

“It’s another step toward making boating less stressful and more enjoyable,” he said.
