Cummins - Mercury Marine’s SmartCraft Integrated Marine Technology is the most complete and powerful boat information system ever created.
SmartCraft provides up-to-the-second information on dozens of engine diagnostics, including RPM, fuel flow and management, critical temperature readings, speed, and engine trim. By taking the guesswork out of boating, SmartCraft makes your time on the water more enjoyable for you and your passengers.
roduct Features:
The ECO-Screen constantly monitors engine RPM, boat speed, fuel consumption and engine trim to automatically calculate and guide you to your best fuel economy settings. We do all the math, so you don't have to.
NMEA 2000 Compatibility*
MercMonitor converts SmartCraft data into NMEA 2000 and transmits that data so it can be viewed on all NMEA 2000 compatible displays (chart plotters, fish finders, etc). MercMonitor can also be used with other engines (Yamaha, Suzuki, Evinrude, etc.) as long as they are NMEA 2000 compliant.
Customizable Backlight Colours
Allows you to choose which colour is right for you. 8 choices available: Blue, Ice Blue, Red, Green, White, Yellow, Purple and Wave
If you are into weekends full of skiing, tubing, boarding or wake surfing, this feature is for you! SmartTow makes towing water sports riders simple. This feature improves your boating experience by bringing your rider out of the water at a preselected speed every time. Gone are the days of needing to guess how fast to pull a rider out of the water. SmartTow makes you a professional tow sport driver! Just select the custom launch profile that your rider desires and throw the throttle down to give them the pull they desire every time.
Descriptive Fault Text
Provides fault data in easy to understand text messages and tips to guide you on how to react to any faults that may occur on your Mercury products.
Steering System
The vessel is steered by a Wheel from the Helmsmans position through a Hydraulic system. The rudders are mounted through the hull in suitable watertight bearings with tillers linked across the hulls by a connecting pipe. The rudders are of stainless steel plate attached by a flange to stainless steel rudder stocks. An emergency hand -tiller is provided as per regulations.
MAC N HOM Hydraulic Steering System
Depending upon the size of vessel, torque required for rudder-stock and angle of turning of rudder plate, we offer 5 models of Rudder Controls for In-Board vessels and 1 model for Out-Board vessels.
