Mercury Marine was recently honoured with the “Most Eco-Friendly Marine Business Award” for the second consecutive year. Mercury received the award during the 2015 China (Shanghai) International Boat Show for its 75-115hp FourStroke Outboard Engine platform. The judges noted fuel efficiency and displacement with the lowest weight as the two key attributes that led to Mercury winning the award. In 2014, Mercury won the award for its lightweight 370hp Mercury Diesel TDI 4.2L engine.
“Our innovative and industry leading 75-115hp platform has received very positive reviews in the marketplace and we are very pleased that the judges honoured us with this award,” said Randy Caruana, Mercury Marine vice president – North & Central America and Asia Pacific. “We will continue to manufacture sustainable products and winning this award for a second consecutive year tells us that the marketplace is supporting our vision of sustainable and innovative marine propulsion technology.”
