Improve Your Boat’s Performance With An Outboard Motor Bracket

Published: Thursday, November 7, 2019

For close to 30 years, Armstrong Nautical Products has been bringing innovative products to the marine industry. These include products such as Armstrong CE-certified Deck Plates, which are completely watertight and easy to use and install, as well as fixed and telescopic swim/dive ladders, which are made with a center pole allowing for a fin-friendly, wide step. Representing clever engineering and designed around performance, value, and ease of use, these are just the beginning of Armstrong’s “off the shelf” items.

Over the course of years in the marine field, Armstrong had also been gaining the expertise to improve upon the ever-growing demand for outboard powered boats by providing a solution to manage the additional weight and positioning of outboard motors.

Armstrong’s Outboard Motor Bracket is the most innovative in the industry, increasing fuel efficiency and top speed, while also reducing time to plane. In most cases, installing an Armstrong Outboard Motor Brackets also improves maneuverability.

Proven in testing, installing one of these custom brackets results in up to a 23% increase in fuel economy by reducing the amount of fuel consumed to perform the same actions. Additionally, by installing an Armstrong bracket on your boat, you reduce the risk of shipping water over the transom while backing down on a fish or while in following seas, or, as happens on the Lakes, while in choppy waters.

By adding an Armstrong Bracket, you will increase deck space, create a quieter cockpit, and, when a swim platform is built into the bracket, a wonderful space is provided for launching, swimming, and diving expeditions by providing an Armstrong Boarding Ladder directly into the custom bracket.

Armstrong has built an Outboard Motor Bracket for everything from single motors to quads on boats from 20 feet and up, and has a reputation for designing brackets that fit your individual boat and motor combination. Each bracket may be custom built, but they are priced competitively!
