Mercury Marine has launched Vessel Config, a software management configurator for boatbuilders and dealers. The tool will provide assistance in ordering the right control and rigging products for their boats.

Engine families that can be configured include Mercury’s FourStroke 40-225hp outboards, Verado L6 200-400R outboards, 115-150hp Pro XS and MerCruiser 4.5L/6.2L/8.2L sterndrives, inboards and tow sports engines.

John Buelow, Mercury Marine vice president of global category management, said Vessel Config will change the way its customers interact with the engine builder. “It turns boatbuilders and dealers into virtual engineers, giving them the ability to configure complex systems without assistance,” Buelow said in a statement. “Customers have been asking for a better way to select parts and this is the first tool that easily explains what parts to order with what engine.”
