Mercury Marine’s Active Trim System

Mercury’s Active Trim review

Mercury Marine’s new Active Trim system automatically trims your engine or engines, making boating easier while also improving engine performance and cutting your fuel costs.

Active Trim’s patented integrated GPS-based control system takes into account both your boat speed and rpm when deciding on the ideal trim position.

It also solves issues with the engine trimming up too early or too late while the boat is getting up on a plane.

Issue 117 Mercury Marines Active Trim System Improves Performance

Active Trim has five selectable trim profiles that accommodate nearly any boat application, so there’s no need to manually enter trim settings vs. rpm.

Simply run your boat and select the best profile for any application. Then personalise Active Trim to your driving style and/or compensate for changes in boat load, preference and weather conditions.

Active Trim can be used on high-performance boats as well as family runabouts.

You can easily disengage and re-engage the system as needed, just by using the manual trim buttons.

Active Trim is compatible with any new Mercury outboard or MerCruiser engine with SmartCraft capability, and the system can also be retrofitted to earlier model engines.
