ENGINE GUARDIAN SYSTEM

ENGINE GUARDIAN SYSTEM is a digital system that utilises sensors to gain information on the performance of various aspects of your engine and drive via SMARTCRAFT. It responds to information that indicates issues that could cause damage to your engine by sounding an alarm, giving a digital message readout on your SMARTCRAFT gauges and, if need be, by intervening through reducing power and engine revolutions. Some of the critical performance parameters monitored include:

High coolant temperature
Knock control
Low drive lubricant
Low oil pressure
Low water pressure
Low voltage
Over-revving
Over-heating

Single/twin applications up to 65mph for petrol engines up to 525 hp
The twin-prop design says it all. Whether in a single-unit or twin-unit application, the Bravo Three is an efficient drive built without compromise. Perhaps it's the best-in-class shifting or its counter-rotating propeller design - enabling agile handling in reverse for precision manoeuvrability. And the greaseable gimbal bearing makes for an easy ownership experience-allowing for service without removing the drive unit. The Bravo Three X drive, standard on big block 8.2L high-output engines, is a super strength drive with high performance attributes.
SMARCRAFT

More Boating, Less Work

It's been the goal of the Mercury SMARTCRAFT team from day one - to make boating more enjoyable through the use of boater-friendly technologies. SMARTCRAFT technology enables engine components to gather and share information with each other and you, integrating this digital information to make monitoring your vessel, its engine and external conditions an easy, intuitive process.

With SMARTCRAFT digital gauges you are informed of all aspects of the performance of your engine and boat. With the pop-up function any relevant or critical information is immediately put on display at the moment it is needed.

DTS
(Digital Throttle Shift)

Digital versus Mechanical

Mechanical controls use a cable that connects the controls to the engine.

Digital controls make use of sensors and wires to transmit the signal from the controls to the engine’s computer. The computer then controls actuators on the engine and drive to select gears and control power as commanded. Only one harness is required as opposed to two or more in addition to cables.

All of today’s sophisticated engines use DTS (Digital Throttle & Shift ).



   
SMARTTOW

Perfect for Wakeboarding

SMARTTOW, available on boats fitted with DTS (Digital Throttle Shift), is the latest SMARTCRAFT advancement in tow sport technology. It combines an rpm-based Cruise Control for consistent speed with Mercury's exclusive Launch Control, which determines the intensity you want out of the water. Forget about the daunting challenge of manually maintaining speed or attempting to estimate the weight of your boat plus crew; simply select from five Launch Control profiles for pull intensity, enter your rpm endpoint, and SMARTTOW takes care of the rest.

Perfect for consistently predictable pull outs for wakeboarding. No more guising what the pilot will do when he puts on the power to pull you out of the water. The boat takes care of all of that for you.

OUR VERY OWN VERY
UNIQUE HULL DESIGN

At first glance our boats are breathtakingly beautiful, but on closer inspection it is clear that besides their good looks, there must be something more intrinsic to their unique appearance and designs.

It is true. From the onset we aimed at, not only creating something pleasing to the eye, but also to develop and incorporate cutting edge technical
features not seen in this class of boats before. Four new technical designs have been incorporated into our hulls as static features that deliver real performance, ride and handling results when you are taking the wheel or tangible pleasure when you are behind the boat skiing or wakeboarding.

Are you intrigued? Well let us impress you a bit more. Read about our four new and very unique design features below.
UPRIGHT BOW
The visual impact of an AGON A23 approaching you on the water is undeniable. No one will ever doubt for a second that you are crossing the waters in something different. It is in no small part due to the sharp upright bow design. Besides looking great, there is also an important technical reason for our design.

The usual approach, by run of the mill boat builders, is to design a hull that flows from somewhere in the middle of the hull smoothly up to the tip of the bow in an arched shape. While this design works well enough in smooth
waters, it certainly can’t deal effectively with any undulations or swells on the waterways without your boat starting to bounce around and porpoise all over the show as it tries to deal with and pass over rough waters. It certainly is not a pleasant experience for your family and friends who you are trying to impress with the amazing performance of your boat.

An AGON A23’s upright bow, on the other hand, attacks rough waters head-on, cutting deep into the water, cleaving its way through any undulation like a hot knife through butter. The result is a much smoother ride
experience on the deck for occupants, who will feel as though they are truly flying over the water. What a great impression to leave your family and friends with, of a ride as smooth as a flying carpet, the stuff of dreams.

INCREASED HULL TO
WATER CONTACT

Our 23ft hull has the same contact surface with the water when cruising as a 26ft boat would have.

A boat with a longer hull provides a much smoother ride and comfort than a boat with a short hull.
The longer the distance of the hull’s contact with the water over the keel, the better the hull can smooth out undulations and swells over the water by absorbing the bumps and thumps across a bigger surface over the length of the boat.
We have endowed our boat with the same hull to water contact length over the keel that you would have on a boat of 26ft long.

In combination with our upright bow design, it creates a much smoother ride than you would find on any other boat in its size and class.
WIDENED STERN
Our stern is wide, wider than usual. It is this feature that gives our boats immense stability at any speed, from idle to full steam ahead.

No better evidence of this is the fact that you can easily throw the boat around into full tilt at top speed without a hint of instability. The boat simply leans its hull into the turn, digs its heels in deep at the stern on the
inside of the turn, and takes the corner as if cornering on rails.

It all adds up to predictable and safe handling. All you need to do is hang onto your seat, and enjoy the power, handling and ride.
DUAL PURPOSE HULL
Why compromise or choose between a wakeboarding boat or a skiing boat when you want and can have both in one, and all this without the added complications and weight of a ballast system?
We were adamant that we wanted to create a hull that not only gave the smoothest of rides for family and friends, best handling and performance for the captain’s ultimate pleasure, but also had the dual purpose and ability to please skiers and wake boarders alike.

To achieve our goal we have employed the WAVE FOLD OVER PRINCIPLE and created our WINGED STERN DESIGN.
WAVE FOLD OVER
PRINCIPLE

To create a sporting wakeboard wave in the wake of your boat, you need a smart hull design that creates a deep fast moving depression in the water, causing the water behind the depression to rapidly fold over into the depression. We call this the WAVE FOLD OVER PRINCIPLE.
WINGED STERN DESIGN
The real genius of our naval architects and designers is most perfectly expressed in the design of the stern of our hull.

To make use of the WAVE FOLD OVER PRINCIPLE in a unique and ingenious way, we have come up with a hull design that is quite different from other hull designs in its class. The solution is so simple and so effective in its working, that has to be considered a thing of beauty.

We have added two fixed winged extensions to both sides of the stern of our boats, which creates a spread out U shaped recessed section to the stern. We call this arrangement our WINGED STERN DESIGN.

By placing the stern drive within the recess, and trimming up, we are able to create a depression in the flow of the water under the hull on the outer winged sections of the stern. In doing this, while the boat is under power and moving, we are able to employ the WAVE FOLD OVER PRINCIPLE, in that the winged stern sections create a deep depression in the water, causing the water flowing from the middle or keel of the hull to fold over into the depression. The higher the trim level on
the stern drive, the deeper the stern wings are pushed into the water and the higher the wave in our wake. The effect is a massive wake that can please even the most avid of wake boarders.

The further genius of our unique hull design is that there is no need to include a ballast system. We have figured out that using the trim function of the stern drive and the stern wings to create the wave, also means that the stern of the boat is pushed deeper into the water under the power of the engine, simulating the effect of ballast tanks and therefore eliminating the need for the tanks.

Now that you have an excellent wakeboarding boat, we will give you another boat to go with it, all-in-one, a stunning skiing boat.

Skiing requires higher speeds and smooth flat wakes. The WINGED STERN DESIGN is wonderful for wakeboarding when depressed into the wake, but will not give a smooth wake needed for skiing. Simply by trimming the stern drive down the bow drops and the stern wings lift out of the water and out of the way.

In this instance the engine, that has been moved forward to create the stern
wings, transfers its weight forward, moving the centre of gravity towards the front of the boat. Now, any good skier will know that a long smooth hull with a forward centre of gravity gives a brilliant flat wake for skiing.

With our forward placed stern drive for improved centre of gravity, smooth hull with an INCREASED HULL TO WATER CONTACT, and WIDENED STERN we are able to create the perfect wake to please the best of skiers.
It is this ingenious invention, our WINGED STERN DESIGN that allows us produce boats that have stunning capabilities as both wakeboarding boats and skiing boats.

Our DUAL PURPOSE HULL design makes our boats so much more special than anything else out there today.
