Mercury Marine announced a summer sales event regarding engine purchases, as well as repower financing opportunities.

The company introduced a “Summer, Here We Come!” sales event, which offers consumers a choice between special financing for repower engines and rebate dollars when they buy a qualifying engine.

It runs until June 30 and offers a financing rate of 4.99 percent APR for qualified applicants. Qualifying engines include the 9.9-hp Pro Kicker FourStroke, the 15-hp Pro Kicker FourStroke, 40-hp to 150-hp FourStrokes, including jet models, and all models of OptiMax Pro XS engines. Consumers can also choose a special rebate instead of financing as much as $1,250 per qualifying repower engine.

Mercury also said consumers with approved credit can finance Mercury outboard, gas sterndrive and inboard engines on the Mercury Marine Repower Financing program. Promotional outboard repower financing rates or rebates are also available.

“We are pleased to be able to offer more boaters access to greater boating enjoyment with Mercury Repower Financing,” Mercury Marine vice president of sales for North/Central America and Asia Pacific Randy Caruana said in a statement. “Repowering with our latest engines allows boaters to maximize their current boat performance. Our financing makes it easy and affordable.”
