Safety

Engineered to Provide Absolute Safety

Optimal boating safety is a primary driver in the development of SmartCraft technology, because the fewer things you have to worry about when you’re boating, the more you’ll enjoy your time on the water. SmartCraft technology makes boating safer primarily through engineering and operations, giving you greater peace of mind.

SmartCraft Operations

One obstacle to enjoying boating is the fear of inexperience. SmartCraft technology gives even the most novice boater confidence to skillfully captain his or her boat.

All boats with Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) also have SmartStart, which performs all the appropriate starting operations with the turn of a key or push of a button. This eliminates the possibility of ruining starters by accidentally starting an engine while it's already running. DTS-equipped engines also feature Engine Guardian, which constantly monitors the engine. If a problem is found, Engine Guardian reduces power to a safe level. This prevents damage to the engine, while allowing enough power to get back to port safely.

SmartCraft Engineering

SmartCraft technology doesn't just mean that a boat works better; it also means that it's built better.

Mercury manages SmartCraft systems with extreme care, and every component undergoes rigorous testing before it can wear the name. As a result, you can be sure that everything will be integrated properly and provide added safety.

SmartCraft technology is engineered to provide a safer boating experience, leaving you to concentrate more on the fun.
