Mercury Marine released a video highlighting its product launches at the Miami International Boat Show.

“Miami was a great opportunity for Mercury to introduce a group of industry-leading products that are designed to make boating easier,” said John Pfeifer, Mercury Marine president. “Our new 115 Pro XS FourStroke is perfect for both saltwater and freshwater, and that engine was very popular this year in Miami.”

Chicago Bears linebacker Willie Young was also spotted on the docks and in the video lauding Mercury Marine’s new engines.

Mercury launched the new Mercury 115 Pro XS at the show.

It also introduced a new side-mount mechanical remote control, next-generation Joystick Piloting System, expanded series of fuel-saving Enertia ECO propellers, Active Trim and new VesselView displays.

“It’s the best thing in the world for the consumer. You guys stand behind your product and stand behind your customers, who are my customers,” Cigarette Racing president Skip Braver said in the video.
