As I am looking over the Mercury Marine outboard motors for this up coming season I am seeing quite a few new additions and changes that have been made. Honestly, there are so many new motors this year that it looks like they have completely revamped their whole line-up. Which is exciting news if you ask me. Although the majority of the changes start at the 150hp range and go up from there, their 15 and 20hp outboards have some interesting improvements that can be seen as well.
Fall means a lot of different things for the people here in Michigan, but for Michigan anglers it really only means one thing. They finally get to fish the annual Salmon and Steelhead push as they make their way up our many streams and rivers. To be successful landing these powerful fish not only takes skill but a special set of tools. One of the most important pieces of equipment needed by river anglers would be a flat bottom stacked with a two or four stroke jet drive outboard. Vans Sport Center is a certified dealer for all of the top brand names in the marine industry, we know our jets and what river fisherman demand in a shallow water outboard.
One of the bigger concerns boat owners have when repowering their rig with a specific brand motor is whether or not there is a certified service center in their location. This is actually a good concern to have when you think about the possibility of any warranty or major service work needing to be done. I have even seen boaters sway to a particular brand based on what their local marina is certified to work on. That kind of limits your options at times but at least someone in your area can work on it. No matter where you are, there is a place in Grand Rapids that is certified to work on your motor no matter what brand you have.
One of the bigger features Mercury developed for the 2018 boating season is actually designed specifically for a few of their smaller outboards. The new 15hp and 20hp EFI Four Strokes to be exact. These outboards have not only been upgraded to an Electronic Fuel Injection system, but they are also getting a fresh new look with some pretty cool features. If you haven't seen these in person, you should probably check them out. Especially if you are considering a new 15 or 20hp outboard this season and I will tell you why.
When your on the hunt for a new outboard this spring, I would suggest giving Vans Sport Center a look. We have a large inventory of new outboard motors from all of the top brand names in the outboard industry. Having such a large inventory allows us to stock our showroom with a diverse variety of motors for our customers to have side-by-side comparions of the different brands and models offered. We find this benefitial for the customers who may not know exactly which motor they are looking to purchase. What really sets us part from other dealers would have to be the fact that we have an impressive used outboard motor inventroy as well. So whether your looking to start fresh or just upgrade to something a little newer, Vans Sport Center has the motor for you.
Our goal at Vans Sport Center is to get you the exact outboard motor you want and at a great price. But with so many different options available across a number of major manufacturers, deciding which one to go with can get a little frustrating. Having to look at each manufacturer one by one, sifting through all of their models, and comparing their pricing. Your looking at 5 or 6 different searches to compare each major manufacturer for a single horsepower. Which means a lot of surfing and screen time to come to a conclusion. Thats why we updated our website so that you can easily browse and compare all of your potential options in one convenient spot.
