MERCURY MARINE 75th ANNIVERSARY

George Wilcox saw the value of becoming a dealer for Mercury Marine in 1973.
The partnership has continued with Jeff Wilcox, who attended Mercury Marine's anniversary celebrations in Orlando.

It was interesting to learn about the history of the most recognized name in the marine history.

Its founder, Carl Kiekhaefer, had the drive and determination to create something that was going to survive, "through wartime shortages, government restrictions and stockholder rebellions".

Later, after Carl had left the company, Mercury would be tested in the early 1990's when the marine industry had to grapple with the worst recession in its history.

There is a remarkable story behind Mercury's own rise and ultimate triumph and we were very honoured to be part of the celebrations that paid respect to the past, present and future of this boat engine.
