Mercury Introduces M Series Inflatable Boats
FOND DU LAC, WI - Mercury Marine this week introduced a new line of versatile and stylish inflatable boats at the 2012 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The first model in the series, the 18-foot M570, comes standard with a Mercury 115hp FourStroke.
The M Series features complete boat packages with sleek, new console designs, superior storage capacity and innovative new construction materials. The industry-leading fit and finish of this boat makes it ideal for virtually all boating lifestyles.
"We have been anticipating the launch of the new M Series because we are proud of the new features and technology used to manufacture these models. The streamlined console and ample storage make them the ideal vessel for everything from everyday use to yacht tending," said Eric Reilley, global product manager for Mercury Inflatable Boats. "The hull is manufactured with a new fiberglass technique, which makes the boat much lighter without sacrificing strength or durability."
Additional models in the M Series include the 17-foot M525 featuring a Mercury 90hp FourStroke and the 20-foot M620 featuring a 150 FourStroke. Both models will be available in 2013.
The M570 model is now available at authorized Mercury Inflatable Boat dealers.
