Mercury Marine includes Active Trim as a standard technology

Mercury Marine is proud to make boating easier and more enjoyable for all new Mercury customers of outboard engines of 175HP and up, by including its exclusive Active Trim feature as a standard technology in the engine package with immediate effect.

After successfully adding Vessel View Mobile in the engine package of outboard engines of 80HP and up last year, Mercury Marine continues to offer more of its intelligent SmartCraft® integrated technologies as a standard exclusively to its customers.
 
Active Trim is an integrated GPS, speed-based automatic engine trim system from Mercury Marine. This intuitive and hands-free system continually adjusts engine trim based on changes in boat speed to improve performance, fuel economy, and ease of operation.
It responds to boat manoeuvres with precision and delivers a better overall driving experience. As the boat accelerates, Active Trim automatically trims the engine out; as the boat decelerates (e.g. making a turn) the engine will trim in. No advanced knowledge is necessary.
The key to Active Trim is its integrated and patented GPS-based control system, which adjusts trim in accordance with boat speed and engine rpm.
 
Active Trim has delivered fuel savings of 14% to 54% over engines fully trimmed down in manual mode, while improving engine performance and durability.

“As a dedicated Marine company, we are committed to offer our customers the best possible experience on the water. Next to our leading engine technologies, Mercury is continuously developing unique and intelligent technologies to get the best performance out of your boat.” said Marty Bass, Mercury Marine EMEA president. “By including Active Trim now as a standard, we take another step to make a better boating experience even more accessible.”

Active Trim is part of the intelligent Mercury SmartCraft® suite of integrated technologies for a greater boating experience. Within the SmartCraft® family of technologies, VesselView Mobile has already been added as a standard technology in the engine package of Mercury SmartCraft® capable outboard engines of 80HP and up since October 2019.
