"Every product we put into the marketplace is designed with sustainability, greater efficiency and fewer emissions in mind," said John Pfeifer, Mercury Marine president.

Designed to suit entry-level and expert boaters alike, Active Trim simplifies boat operation while improving engine performance and decreasing fuel costs. New boaters are immediately able to properly trim boat engines with no intimidating learning curve, and experienced boaters can get the benefit of perfect trimming without constantly monitoring and adjusting trim with changes to boat speed or when going into turns.
Active Trim is compatible with a range of Mercury engines from 40 to 400 horsepower, and can be retrofitted to many engines already in use.
