Mercury Marine earned a trio of honors in the inaugural PowerboatMagazine Readers Choice Awards. 

The popular MerCruiser and Mercury Racing sterndrives powered Mercury Marine to win the "Favorite Sterndrive Manufacturer" category. 
"The company offers brawny MerCruiser and Mercury Racing drives that are found on the transoms of a majority of performance boats across the country, and they keep getting better," Powerboat's editors wrote.
MerCruiser's impressive lineup of more than 20 sterndrives includes the Alpha One and Bravo series, while Mercury Racing boasts several top-line, high-performance drives, including the popular 525 EFI.

"We take pride in building the best sterndrives on the market," said Kevin Grodzki, former president of MerCruiser and current President of Mercury Sales, Marketing and Commercial Operations. "This award is extra special because it comes from the boating enthusiasts we proudly serve."
Mercury Racing also was named
 Powerboats readers' "Favorite Engine Builder" and received honorable mention in the "Favorite Propeller Manufacturer" category.

"It is always a joy to have your engine, sterndrive and propeller creations warmly embraced by enthusiasts," said Mercury Racing President Fred Kiekhaefer. "Powerboat readers have a passion for excellence and we sincerely appreciate their endorsement."
Twenty categories were determined and 60 awards were presented in
 Powerboats' first-ever Readers Choice Awards. Almost 900 performance boat enthusiasts voted for their favorite marine manufacturers, dealers and boating destinations. The complete list of winners can be found in Powerboat's September issue or online at
