SmartCraft: The Next Generation - 08/29/2007
Mercury Raises the Bar with its NEW Version of SmartCraft Digital Throttle and Shift (DTS)

Before SmartCraft DTS, a triple engine boat could need up to a total of six different throttles and shifts.

We like any product that makes boating simpler and therefore more enjoyable. Mercury's SmartCraft is one such product—actually, it's a team of integrated products—that does just this. BoatTEST Director of Testing Capt. Bob Smith got a chance to see how the SmartCraft Digital Throttle and Shift (DTS) works.

Tom Burkard, Mercury's General Manager of Controls and Rigging, gave him a first-hand look at the NEW SmartCraft System that integrates and controls a plethora of information from four 300-hp Mercury Verados on a Sea Vee 390 CC. Take a look by clicking on the links below...
