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 single source for single-engine controls. An entire range of controls that fit perfectly the boat, the application, the helmsman. Choose from side mounts, flush/panel mounts, console mounts - with combined speed and trim functions and engine warmup. All pure Mercury. Inside and out.

Ergonomics. We've made it a science. 

Spend a whole day on the water, and you'll know how important it is. The feel, the control, the leverage of a well-designed throttle. And at Mercury, we overlook nothing. Things like soft-grip handles. Smooth internal mechanisms. Slim profiles. They work better. They feel better. They are better.

The digital difference. 

Many of the larger Mercury outboards are digitally compatible. So you've got SmartCraft® Digital Throttle & Shift (DTS), right at your fingertips. Smoother shifting. Quicker response. A whole new level of control for single-engine boats.

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 1000 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.
