Introducing Mercruiser Bravo 4 S Forward-Facing Drive
Watersports enthusiasts commemorated as Mercury Marine lately introduced its brand-new Mercruiser Bravo Four S forward-facing drive with Smart Tow manages. While every Mercruiser includes mechanical improvements, the boosted Smart Tow system was the star of the show for this launch.
Mercruiser sterndrive engines have actually long been a favorite of watersports lovers because nesting the engine inside the watercraft offers an unhampered swim system. Additionally, numerous water sporting activities enthusiasts choose the wakes produced by these Mercruiser sterndrives, and Smart Tow controls include even more accuracy.

Smart Tow takes the uncertainty out of drawing skiers, tubers, wakeboarders, as well as wake surfers. The system includes 5 predetermined accounts or allows you to develop up to eight customized accounts. Each account defines acceleration ramp rate, quantity of overshoot, size of overshoot, and also target speed.
Basically, Smart Tow enables you to coordinate ballast, use the best launch and speed every time based upon the experience as well as skill level of the water sporting activities fanatic being lugged. Without thought or preparation, you can hit the throttle as well as go, time and again.
" The appeal of water tow sporting activities-- and also, especially, wakesurfing and also wakeboarding-- has actually surged. We thoroughly studied all the refinements that enter into maximizing a watercraft's wake for each and every of the different tow sporting activities and also developed a system to make those setups very easy for the boater," stated Tim Reid, Mercury vice president of item development and engineering.
" Whether seafarers are experienced wakesurfers or brand-new to tow sporting activities, the Bravo 4 S forward-facing drive delivers the power to do it safely and also dependably in combination with tried and tested MerCruiser 4.5 litre V-6, 6.2 litre V-8, and 8.2 litre V-8 sterndrive engines ranging from 250hp to 430hp," Reid proceeded.
Forward-facing props provide added "grip on the water," leading to improved maneuverability, especially at reduced rates.
The SmartCraft Digital Throttle & Change system uses accurate control, which is truly crucial when hauling.
Mercury Marine has a long background of engineering the best-performing, most reliable props in the market. They developed 5 brand-new props especially for the Bravo Four S drive. They're created to run in a double contra-rotating setup with a four-blade propeller before a three-blade prop, which reduces cavitation to lower noise as well as rise effectiveness. Certainly, like every Mercury Marine prop, these brand-new designs were developed for resilient performance.
While forward-facing drives look uncommon to some sailors, Mercury constructed its very first forward-facing drive in 1949 when it created the reversible gearcase. The Bravo 4 S drive builds on this rich legacy by incorporating mechanical and efficiency enhancements as well as technology integration. We can't wait to see what is next!
