Edson International and Mack Boring/Yanmar are partnering through their dealer networks to extend a special offer to sailboat owners looking to repower their sailboats.

Through the end of February, any sailboat owner repowering a sailboat with a Yanmar diesel at a Mack Boring authorized dealer can save as much as 20 percent on all steering-related upgrades through Edson when they’re installed at the same time as the new engine.

“When people look for repowering expertise for their sailboats, Mack Boring is the go-to company for propulsion,” Edson International sales manager Chuck Gilchrest said in a statement. “There's no better time to gain access to the steering system on a sailboat than when the engine is removed, saving the owner hours and hours of installation labor. Combined with the substantial discount on steering parts offered by Edson, this is truly the least expensive way to modernize your steering while getting a great deal on a new Yanmar diesel.”
