Century Marine Pro – Choosing the right battery

Century Marine Pro batteries are the ultimate marine batteries - designed and built right here in Australia specifically to handle the harsh and demanding environments which boats are often subjected to.

Unlike car batteries which generally travel on smooth, sealed roads, marine batteries must be built to withstand relentless vibration from wave pounding, and the harshness boats are often subjected to when being transported by road on a trailer.

Century’s Marine Pro SMF batteries are built tough to handle it all - with a full frame cast plate design and Century’s exclusive Platelock Technology to handle the harsh and demanding effects marine batteries are often subjected to – which would ultimately cause battery failure in non-marine batteries.

Marine batteries also need to do more than just start the engine. They often need to perform semi-cycling duties to power on-board accessories like fish finders and fridges even when the boat’s engine is switched off. This is why the majority of Century’s Marine Pro range are proper dual-purpose batteries - incorporating both starting and semi cycling capabilities to power your devices out on the water and still provide the power needed to restart the engine and get you home at the end of the day.

No matter what size boat you have, or the accessories you need to power – there’s a Century Marine Pro battery available to suit your needs.
