'Boat lovers can access a broad range of videos and there are plenty more to come.

'‘Whether you’re looking for detailed information about Mercury’s engine technology, advice on how to make your boat run better or just a bit of entertainment there are plenty of reasons to visit,' Anthony said.

'It is a video we expect to receive plenty of interest,' Anthony said.

Visitors are encouraged to leave comments or join a discussion about any of the videos. They can also help drive the content by suggesting other videos they’d like to see.
