Mercury Reports Records at Dubai Show


Mercury Marine this morning announced it out-displayed all other outboard engine manufacturers at this year’s Dubai International Boat Show. The company also said it captured 90 percent market share at the show.

“Dubai is a very important show to Mercury, Mercury Racing and our channel partners,” Mercury Marine’s president for Europe, Middle East and Africa Will Sangster said in a statement.

“It is fantastic to see the strength of partnerships we have with our distributors Delma Marine and Extreme Marine in the UAE continuing to position Mercury as the only brand of choice,” Sangster said. “We look forward to continuing to serve our customers in the Middle East and partner with them on their growth plans.”

Mercury Marine is a division of Brunswick Corp.
