Because every vessel is different, and because sometimes an off-the-shelf product just won’t do, MER Equipment specializes in engineering custom-built power generation solutions to match your specific needs.

Our goal is not to offer you the lowest price, but to build a robust product that will pass the test of time and provide the lowest cost of ownership.


As a family-owned business with more than 50 years of experience, we are very proud of our reputation for excellence that we have earned here in the Seattle area and the maritime industry itself.

Since 1964, MER Equipment has been specializing in the custom building of marine & industrial generators, power distribution systems and hydraulic power units. Our experienced staff is comprised of fishermen, vessel owners, marine engineers, designers and fabricators so we know what it takes to keep a boat on the water.

Whether you are a commercial fisherman or a Tow Boat Port Engineer, we have the products, skills and experience to handle any situation.
