Anyone's control will operate anyone's engine, so you may not need a new control. Just the cable ends at the engine to connect the cables to the new Merc.. But you will need a new wiring harness for the Merc. If the control has the Key switch in it you may need to move the key switch to the dashboard unless a Merc key switch will fit in a Yam control.

Figured if you were trying to save a few bucks this might be worth looking into because the Yam control you have is better than any Merc control you are going to buy/find..
