Vanquish Boats signs deal with Mercury Marine

Publish date:

Vanquish Boats signed on with Mercury Marine to offer Mercury Verado 4-stroke supercharged outboards across the entire Vanquish lineup, including the 26 Dual Console.

Vanquish customers will have the option of the Mercury Verado as 200, 225 or 250 hp.

“The only thing more impressive than the Verado power package,” Vanquish president Morgan Huntley said in a statement Tuesday, “is the support we have received from Mercury Marine in getting our technicians educated in the smart craft technology. This made us feel very good about the partnership, as clearly their dedication to a great customer experience mirrors ours.”

A new 2015 Vanquish 26 Dual Console will be shown with the Mercury Verado 250 at the New England Boat Show, which will be held from Feb. 14-22 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
