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.
