Mercury single-engine controls are engineered, built and tested for the long run.

Whatever your boat, you're covered.

Aluminum fishing, center-console, pontoon – whatever your boat, Mercury is your source for single-engine controls that perfectly fit the vessel and the application. Choose from flush/panel mounts and console mounts. With comfortable designs and intuitive features throughout the lineup, Mercury controls give you the confidence and precision to handle your boat with ease.

Ergonomics. We've made it a science.

Spend a whole day on the water, and you'll know the importance of a well-designed throttle. And at Mercury, we overlook nothing. Our controls are designed to be highly functional touchpoints that connect you with the propulsion system. We incorporate features such as soft-grip handles, smooth internal mechanisms and slim profiles. They work better and feel better because they are better.

The digital difference.

Many Mercury engines are compatible with the Next Generation Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS) system,* which gives you even more command and control of your boat. Through the most advanced suite of electronic remote controls in the marine space, Next Gen DTS delivers smooth shifting and ultra-responsive throttle performance, with integrated SmartCraft® features that make boating even easier. *Next Gen DTS single-engine controls available early 2022.

Our controls and gauges 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 more than 1,000 total hours of testing take place before a control or gauge is fully certified by the Mercury engineering team and deemed worthy of your boat.

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 and smooth handling with instant response and total control.

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