MERCURY MARINE HAS UNVEILED its Bravo Four S forward-facing drive with Smart Tow controls – a new drive system for MerCruiser engines that helps craft perfect wakes for wakesurfing, wakeboarding and other tow sports.

Digital controls that coordinate ballast, surf tabs and propulsion settings under a single and intuitive user interface make it easier than ever before.

Mercury SmartCraft digital technologies, including an upgraded Smart Tow system, come standard with the Bravo Four S drive. These controls allow customisation of the tow sports experience with just a few taps on a Mercury VesselView touchscreen display. The driver can simply select the desired tow sports activity and the Smart Tow system will display the appropriate controls to dial in the perfect launch acceleration, towing speed and wake characteristics.

Other advantages of the Bravo Four S drive include enhanced manoeuvrability, especially at low speeds, SmartCraft Digital Throttle & Shift system for precise control, and a selection of five new propellers.

Mercury authorised dealers support the entire system, from drive to display.
