Florida builder touts Mercury Marine relationship

The partnership between Mercury Marine and Nor-Tech High Performance Boats goes back to the boat company's inception.

The partnership between Mercury Marine and Nor-Tech High Performance Boats goes back to the boat company's inception and continues to grow.

"We always say Mercury Marine started with this company. The first boat we had was the triple 525 super chargers," Nor-Tech owner Trond Schou said in a statement. "We went from one engine program to the other. We are building two boats a week now and most of them have three or four Verado 350- or 400-hp outboard engines."

Since Mercury's release of the Verado 350-hp and the Mercury Racing 400R engines at the 2015 Miami International Boat Show, Nor-Tech said it has gotten calls from boaters requesting the engines.

"Our customers are really excited about Mercury Marine and Nor-Tech together," Nor-Tech customer service manager Fritz Harrington said. "The performance, reliability and durability meet our application. Our product line works well with the Verado 350 and 400R, and our customers are really excited about it."
