Some CRUSADER Marine Engine Owner's & Parts Manuals PDF above the page.
Crusader Engines is a part of PCM.
The Pleasurecraft Engine Group (PCM) has been building marine engines for almost 40 years. The company owns two brands - PCM and Crusader (engines for marine operation).
A couple of years ago, the company was on the rise, having received most of the market and new customers - Tige Boats, MB Sports and Centurion Boats. But competitors from Indmar Engines in an alliance with Ford Motors put PCM Engines on the blades, releasing new generation engines. As a result, PCM Engines lost almost all customers and a large market share.
Now, PCM Engines, saving their business, sold a 100% stake in Correct Craft (the parent company of Nautique Boats) and lost their independence, although the Correct Craft management assures us that there will be no changes in the management of PCM.
The companies share a common history - Correct Craft has been installing PCM engines on their boats for 40 years.
For Centurion Boats. The towing manufacturer may have to look for new power plants for their boats, as buying engines from a competitor of Centurion Boats will not be very pleasant.
For buyers. Competition is the engine of progress. In greenhouse conditions - without the need to compete under the Correct Craft wing - it will be difficult for PCM to change and work equally with INDMAR and ILMOR engines.
