As of 2015, there are no complete Mercury serial number charts, but there are free online services that provide information about any boat, hull or engine after entering the serial number, such as HindeCoder.com. Alternatively, contact Mercury Marine directly at 920-929-5040.
Each boat, engine or hull is given a unique identification number at the time of manufacture, the serial number. The serial number is used for tracking ownership of the item, and it is also useful for ordering replacement parts.
Mercury Marine is a company based in Wisconsin. It manufactures a variety of boat engines, propellers, engine control devices and inflatable boats.
