FOND DU LAC, Wis. (Dec. 13, 2017) — Mercury Marine’s commitment to sustainability has earned the company the “Green Masters” designation from the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council for the seventh consecutive year.

Earning the Green Master designation places Mercury among the top 20 percent of the approximately 200 participating companies.  In 2017, Mercury received a sustainability score of 643 points, well above the necessary story to retain its Green Master status.

The Green Master Program measures companies on a broad range of sustainability issues ranging from energy and water conservation to waste management, community outreach and education.

“We are honored to receive a Green Masters designation for the seventh consecutive years,” said Scott Louks, Mercury Marine sustainability and facilities project management manager. “We emphasize sustainability in everything we do from our processes to our people and it takes a commitment from all 6,200 global employees to meet and exceed our goals.  We have robust plans for the future and I’m confident that we will continue to lead the way in the marine industry and effect significant growth in sustainability.”

Mercury Marine recently released its 2017 Sustainability Report which details the company's progress towards its key pillars of energy, environment, products and people. 

The 2017 Sustainability Report is available for download at:  https://www.mercurymarine.com/en/us/about/sustainability

The report highlights fuel-efficient products, water and energy conservation milestones and features a brand-new solar panel roof at Mercury’s EMEA headquarters.  Additionally, the report shows that, in each of the major categories of its sustainability initiative, Mercury has met or exceeded its goals.

WILSONVILLE, OR (December 5, 2017): Since its launch at the Miami International Boat Show in February 2017, Raymarine’s game-changing Axiom units with RealVision 3D technology have been shaking up the marine electronics industry.

The introduction of Axiom Pro at ICAST 2017 did much to further the excitement, offering anglers and boaters a built-in 1kW offshore CHIRP sonar and Raymarine’s fast and intuitive HybridTouch™  user experience. Blazing quad-core performance and Lighthouse 3 operating system represent the most advanced navigational and fish-finding multifunction displays on the water.

As you’ll see in the video, Raymarine RealVision 3D provides users a unique look at what’s below the waterline. Revealing structure, cover, fish, and forage in the three-dimensional space, RealVision 3D is the closest thing to draining a lake and walking around… all without the extra expense and hassle of a black box or additional transducer.

Watch as Raymarine’s Jim McGowan demonstrates how Raymarine’s leading-edge sonar technologies clearly define structure and fish—and how running SideVision split-screen view in tandem can lead to even more precise fish-finding and boat positioning.

Prices for the Raymarine Axiom MFD Series range from $649.99 to $3349.99. Axiom Pro models start at $2,299.99 USD and are available from Raymarine’s authorized dealer network. For more information, visit www.raymarine.com/axiom and www.raymarine.com/axiompro.
