Trademark blue Crusader engines have provided premium inboard power for many of the industry’s finest cruisers and sportfishermen for over a half century. Over the years, the list of boat manufacturers who use Crusader power reads like a “who’s who” of the greatest yacht, cruiser and sportfishing boat artisans in the world.
In 1998, Crusader was acquired by the Pleasurecraft® Marine Engine Company, a highly regarded inboard manufacturer for over 38 years. The union created the Pleasurecraft Engine Group, which is now the leading manufacturer of gasoline inboards in the world. With state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and a strong focus on research and development, Crusader inboards are built specifically for the rigors of offshore use.
To add value at every opportunity, we design and manufacture most marinization components ourselves, using sophisticated computer-controlled machinery. This technology allows us to control costs and quality, further enhancing the premium value of the Crusader product. The following pages detail the outstanding features, top quality components and customer satisfaction programs that show why Crusader inboards are uniquely superior.
