Mercury Racing Offering Custom-Color K-Planes


A staple of high-performance V-bottoms, Mercury Racing’s 280-S and 380-S K-Planes will be offered in custom colors for 2016. Samples currently are on display in the Mercury Marine tent at the Miami International Boat Show, which opens this morning and will run through Feb. 15.

The Fond du Lac, Wis., company is offering 12 custom colors for the 280-S and 380-S units—both of which are designed for boats 31 feet and longer—to enable customers to color match them to their NXT6 and M8 drives, as well as the graphics of their boats. Manufactured from corrosion-resistant aluminum, K-planes are equipped with heavy-duty hydraulic pumps and electronic trim senders that provide real-time trim-position information via Mercury Marine Vessel View and other NMEA compliant systems.
