Winter weary and ready for summer, boat enthusiasts don’t want to sit and watch others enjoying water sports. They want to be in on the action, whether it’s water skiing, fishing, sailing, or just enjoying time on the water. Boats outfitted with outboard motors will get you to and keep you in the action.
A Motor for Every Purpose
Outboard motors are available in a variety of sizes and horsepower capabilities. For those who love to fish, electric trolling motors make an excellent companion to higher powered motors that run on gas. They’re also great for smaller lakes that don’t allow gas motors. From the 20hp marine engine to the 2.5HP portable for small craft, you are sure to find just the right outboard for your needs.
Patriotism is running loud and proud these days, so finding an outboard motor built in the USA is the first option many people look to find. Practical options, such as built in fuel tanks, shaft length, and single or twin cylinders are found in Mercury outboards manufactured in Wisconsin. Other options desirable depending on the size and purpose of your craft include carburetor and propeller size, torque, and one hand gear shifting. Small engines come equipped with manual ignitions, but larger models are equipped with electric start ignitions.
Dealer Service for You
Dozens of outboard motor dealers want your business so choose one that offers the best amenities for you. Some services to search for when buying are free shipping, a price match guarantee, and financial incentives like no sales tax. But amenities shouldn’t stop once a purchase is made. Service after the sale is as important as the treatment you receive to gain your business. Customer service representatives who are knowledgeable about their outboard motors and strive to maintain a quality relationship with their customers will keep you satisfied with your outboard motor and ensure you get optimum performance from it for many years.
Boating season doesn’t last long enough in many areas of the country, but your delight in your water activity shouldn’t be limited. Begin your family fun on the water this season with an outboard motor designed and built for safety and reliability.
