In 1939 Brunswick Corporation created a division called Mercury Marine. This division was developed for the creation and sale of boat motors. After much success selling boat motors at the 1940 New York Boat Show and getting government contracts to produce chainsaw motors during World War II, Mercury became a more established brand in the motor business. After the war was over, there were even more Americans that were interested in boating. By the late 1950s, Mercury began testing more powerful boat motors on a secret lake location in Florida, giving birth to the MerCruiser Motor in 1961. This motor went on to dominate over 75 percent of the world market.
MerCruiser boat motors today range from 100 to 450 horsepower. There is also a diesel powered drive system that is developed in partnership with Cummins, a leader in diesel engine production. This type of drive system and motor are great for boaters that appreciate helm control. Most boats that are manufactured in the United States have a MerCruiser motor or other Mercury Marine product. When shopping for a quality boat, look for one that features a MerCruiser motor. By doing so you will get a great product that can be repaired affordably and easily because of the availability of parts.
Maybe you have been deciding on whether or not to purchase a boat or which boat to purchase. The type of boat you get should be based on your needs. MerCruiser boats are excellent for fishing, racing and just floating on the waves. Some boats are better suited for entertaining a couple friends and family members, while others are crafted for a smaller crowd. The choice is simple at Marine Connection.
