Yamaha Purchases Bennett Marine


Yamaha has acquired Bennett Marine, Inc., creator of the adjustable trim tab. Bennett Marine is known for its hydraulic trim tab systems and the recently launched Bolt electric trim tab and AutoTrim Pro systems. Bennett Marine will become a part of Yamaha’s newly created subsidiary, Yamaha Marine Systems Company, Inc. (hereafter “YMSC”).

Charles Bennett invented the first adjustable trim tab in 1959, dramatically improving a boat’s performance in an expanded range of conditions. Bennett Marine is the largest manufacturer of durable hydraulic and electric trim tab systems designed for a variety of boat styles and sizes.

“We’re very excited to become part of the Yamaha Marine family and look forward to continuing the great legacy of producing innovative and high quality boat-leveling solutions well into the future,” says Charles Sweet, CEO of Bennett Marine, Inc.
