Mercury Marine changes the boating industry.

Marine engine technology has evolved. Mercury Marine continues to expand its outboard and marine engine technology. Mercury is leading the industry with boating innovations from Zeus joystick technology to VesselView displays, Joystick Piloting for Outboards, Active Trim, and Skyhook GPS digital anchoring. In 2016, Mercury introduced the VesselView Mobile app for iOS and Android, and an updated joystick and skyhook feature to its portfolio of technologies.

You’re fully covered. Right down to the controls and gauges.

The outstanding warranty coverage on Mercury engines also extends to the controls and rigging components on your boat. If your builder or dealer uses genuine Mercury gauges and controls when installing the new engine on your boat, the warranty coverage for those rigging components now matches the total warranty of your engine. This means you could have up to an additional two years of control and rigging component coverage – based on the engine purchased.

Effortless Control.

Mercury’s patented Joystick Piloting System delivers 360 degree directional control. The Skyhook Digital Anchoring System holds your boat in a fixed position regardless of wind or current. Active Trim is the only auto-trimming program that uses GPS and speed. SmartCraft DTS (Digital Throttle & Shift) delivers precise handling and total control. It also seamlessly connects with compatible displays and features automotive-style power steering.

Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS)

The SmartCraft Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) system. The epitome of smooth, precise shifting and lightning-fast throttle response. No cables. No hesitation. With a solid, proven track record for performance and reliability.


Your onboard fuel calculator. The ECO-Screen, displayed on your MercMonitor, constantly monitors engine rpm, boat speed, fuel consumption, and engine trim to automatically calculate and guide you to your best fuel economy settings. You pilot the boat. We do the math. And save you 10 to 20 percent in fuel consumption.

Whether you choose digital or analog, you’ve chosen the best. Gauges and Displays that work better, read better, look better, and last longer.

A gauge for every boat and boater.

From classic to contemporary, Mercury® has the gauges and displays that fit your boat and your needs. A broad range of styles, colors, and shapes, as well as analog and digital versions. And always, above all, built to the highest standards for quality and reliability.


Classic simplicity. Displays that typically have a pointer and scale to indicate a specific measurement such as speed, rpm, trim, or fuel level. Connected by wires that carry signals from the engine. Fully compatible with all engines — including FourStroke, Verado®, and OptiMax®.


Digital gauges brought on-board through the SmartCraft® digital package. The idea? Total integration of all critical data and information. Speed, fuel, depth, RPMs – everything. All accurately and clearly displayed – including advanced, multi-function, touch-screen LCD displays. Compatible with all sterndrive, Verado, OptiMax, and FourStroke® engines 40 hp and above.

Controls and gauges that have to face the ultimate test. Mercury engineers. 

Getting past a Mercury engineer is no easy task. There’s lab testing. On-water testing. Race testing. Often up to 1,000 total hours before the control or gauge is fully certified by Mercury engineering. And worthy of your boat.

The power of SmartCraft®.
At your fingertips, and your command.
