Bound for powerboat builders around the country, the first shipments of Mercury Marine’s VesselView903, the latest generation of Mercury’s largest and most advanced multifunction display, left the Fond du Lac, Wis., company. The news was announced this afternoon in a press release from the marine engine and accessories company.
The latest generation of Mercury Marine’s VesselView system will be installed in high-performance catamarans and V-bottoms in the near future.
“Our next generation VesselView technology allows boaters the ability to simultaneously display information for up to four engines at a time in an easy-to-use touch-screen interface,” said Zachary Savage, Mercury Marine VesselView program manager, in the release.
The VesselView903 features a bright 16×9 aspect ratio, high-definition glass touchscreen with glare reducing coating and dimmable lighting. Similar to the VesselView703 launched at the 2017 Miami International Boat Show, the system incorporates all the Simrad® accessories for the Go9 product line including radar, sonar transducers, Fish AIS, VHF, Sonic Hub/Fusion Link/SiriusXM, C-Zone/Naviop digital switching and more.
Features of the VesselView903 include built-0in 10Hz GPS and chartplotter capability, touch-only screen interface that delivers intuitive display interaction and auto notification of software updates through its embedded WiFi. The system supports 16 languages and multiple unit conversions and with VesselView Link, boaters have the ability to fully integrate the propulsion system and make their display multi-functional, according to the release.
VesselView903 also provides a descriptive fault text display as well as up-to-date information for 30-plus engine parameters including fuel level and range, oil temperature and pressure, battery voltage, water depth and more.
