Mercury Racing Service Manager Scott Browne Passes


A highly-respected technician, performance engine and boat builder and waterski racing champion.

The Mercury Racing family regrets the passing of colleague Scott Browne, who served as a Service Manager for Mercury Racing and Mercury Marine in Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific region. Browne, age 49, died unexpectedly in January.

“Scott was energetic, knowledgeable and passionate,” said Anthony Brown, Mercury Marine marketing manager for Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. “Scott had a positive effect on each and every one of us.”

When Browne joined Mercury Marine in 2001 he brought with him two great loves – spending time on the water and working with engines. He had the knowledge to answer questions and the passion to ask them. An expert mechanic, fully trained on race engines and with plenty of experience working in a dealership, Scott knew the business from all sides.
