Mercury holding test-drive events for Axius, Zeus

Mercury Marine will host on-the-water test drives of its Axius and Zeus boat control systems later this month in Maryland.

The Axius and Zeus joystick control systems are designed to make maneuvering and docking in tight quarters a simple task, regardless of weather and water conditions. Even inexperienced boaters will be able to navigate with ease, according to the company.

"It is important for both experienced boaters and even novices who are thinking about boating to try out our Axius and Zeus technology," said Steve Fleming, Mercury's director of communications, in a statement. "It's truly a revolutionary breakthrough in boating technology."

The Mercury Marine test-drive events will take place Friday and Saturday at Clarks Landing, Mears Point Marina in Grasonville, Md.; and Aug. 29 at Price William Marine in National Harbor, Md.
