SmartCraft Integration Enhances the Boating Experience

Mercury incorporated its popular Active Trim feature directly on the control, making it simple to activate the industry’s first GPS speed-based automatic trim system. Active Trim continually and automatically adjusts engine trim to improve performance, fuel economy and ease of operation. There’s also a control available with a Quick Steer activation button for boats rigged with the Single Outboard Electric Steering system. Quick Steer enhances control by providing full turning capacity for the boat with only a quarter-turn of the steering wheel to the left or right.

Built for all Your Adventures

Next Gen DTS delivers a premium driving experience for wherever the water takes you. It’s compatible with all Mercury DTS-enabled outboard, sterndrive, inboard and diesel engines. That includes the V8 and V6 FourStroke outboards and the legendary Verado® engine family.

Driving Made Easier

Every button, every indicator light, every engine control was scrutinized through intensive usability testing to ensure the Next Gen DTS control is easy and intuitive to use. So you can handle the boat with confidence and precision.

Designed for Comfort and Control

Whether you’re dropping the throttle at takeoff or pulling someone on a tube, the sleek, ergonomic throttle handle and easy-to-reach control buttons seamlessly connect you with your Mercury propulsion system. An integrated engine cutoff lanyard connection makes safety more convenient.
