Mercury Marine® has been making world-class outboards and sterndrives for more than 75 years. We started back in 1939 in a small machine shop in Wisconsin, and we've grown into the largest builder of marine propulsion systems in the world. Number one on the water. And we didn't get there by sitting still.Ours is a long history of firsts and foremosts. A history of constant improvements, as we've set and reset the standards for reliable, trouble-free performance; superior power and torque; low emission; and low fuel consumption. And nobody has given boaters more more ways to propel their specific boats, activities, and pursuits reliably, comfortably, and efficiently across the water.
