About US

B&D has evolved over the last three decades to remain a leader in performance technology.

In the late ‘70’s and ‘80’s Jets and V-drives were the industry standard. Brian built the jet pumps and set up race boats such as Don Damron’s “The Devil” (BFJ), Bob Barron’s “Split Decision” (BFJ), Eddie Morenz’s “Blue Magic” (CJ circle racer), Chuck Collins’ “CC & Water” (KJ circle racer), all record holders, just to name a few.

While still a great form of propulsion, Jet and V-drive numbers have diminished and the sterndrive market has flourished with Mercruiser leading the way. Today B & D Marine still modifies, services, & repairs Jets and V-drives, but as a Certified Premier Master Technician for Mercuiser our main focus is sterndrives.
Brian has been modifying and building Bravo Drives since they were introduced in 1988. We have developed modifications in the way they are assembled to allow them to live under extreme conditions.
