Pioneers In Their Field
Mercury Marine has always been the innovators in outboard marine technology. Making boating easier every time we turn around.
Just when you think it cant get any better Mercury comes out with something new that makes boating even more fun. Whats really cool is we have helped develop some of that technology right here in Key West at Dream Catcher Charters on the very boats we take people out on every day. Thats how Mercury gets it right. Real world testing and validation to make sure the product is ready for production.
Mercury was not the first outboard manufacturer that started producing 4 stroke outboards. Mercury finished the job and made it better. We have been using Verado outboards from Mercury Marine long enough to know they are here to stay. Mercury took 4 stroke technology and applied a super charger to it. Till then, 4 strokes were soft out of the hole and in acceleration. Coupled with Mercury patented DTS control our boats are even safer and easier to operate. Whether you are on a boat during the weekend or every day it makes the time spent even nicer.. Read article by Capt. Steven Lamp about Verado Outboards.
Super quiet, super easy to operate and super strong these things should have a big old "S" on their chest. When we switched to Verado the whole world changed for us. Better fuel economy meant we can save our customers money and not raise rates. Better performance meant shorter trips to the fishing grounds. Overall quiet operation means I can get to know our clients even better being able to hear them when we are running.
A staple in outboard motors the Mercury OptiMax is an incredible power platform. Super fuel economy and old school rigging the OptiMax will always have a place in our hearts even in this technical age for several of our applications. We love the light weight of the OptiMax for our high powered flats boats and light weight high speed applications.
The Optis are awesome. Unfortunately the EPA is making it harder for them to remain in the industry. We will continue to use them as long as Mercury is allowed to sell them. -- Capt. Steven Lamp
Naturally aspirated and very strong for a 150. We did a few comparisons with this motor to the competition and the competition lost - bad. Awesome fuel economy mixed with ease of use and super easy maintenance make this motor a very affordable fun platform for any boater. Check out the Mercury 150 4 stroke article written by Capt. Steven Lamp Here..
With 4 strokes oil changes are a way of life. Mercury made this motor super easy to maintain. Fast oil changes, easy filter changes and the stuff we need to do all of it is right at our Mercury dealers show room. We have found that our 150 4 stroke is an incredibly durable platform.
Getting the most out of our equipment is what we are all about. Propellers are a great place to start fine tuning for fuel economy and performance for our fishing boats. Not until recently have tuned propellers been a part of fishing boats but when everyone found out they could save fuel by getting their props done all of a sudden it mattered. Mercury Lab Finished propellers has been fine tuning our blades since the 90's. Again helping us keep the cost of our fishing charters low so our clients can afford to go fishing with us.
