Power ahead

These outboards have everything to set your pulse running.

You’ll ride wave after wave of fun with these incredibly compact V6, 3.5 litre engines. High performance is built in, with innovations like VTEC™ – originally developed for Formula One race cars, BLAST™, ECOmo and an array of safety and engine protection features for extra peace of mind. They develop strong, smooth power with good torque delivery from low revs, right through the rev range.

Liquid silver

We think something that works beautifully should look great too.

These V6 4-stroke outboard engines, with a slim hydrodynamic gear case, provide excellent performance and economy.

Finished in attractive Honda aqua marine silver, these handsome engines are incredibly light for big V6 4-stroke outboards – and they look it too.

Functional design

Sleek, aerodynamic styling combines nicely with a superior hydrodynamic designed gear case – which gives you better underwater performance at high speed. All wrapped up in bright silver bodywork, these engines not only look fantastic reflecting sunlight off the water, they also look great out of the water too, just hanging off the back of your boat.

A watertight warranty

Like our engines, a Honda warranty is the best you can get.

Honda instruments and gauges give you accurate and reliable monitoring, helping protect the engine and ensuring your outboard has a long life.

The reason is clear: better salt water protection through better anti-corrosion technology and superior servicing with specially trained Honda technicians. Every Honda Marine customer has the support of a domestic or professional warranty, as long as you stick to the service schedule. It will maintain the same value throughout its warranty period. That means your last day of cover is as good as your first. We think that’s pretty unbeatable too.

Four lines of defence

We first anodise the aluminium casing with our patented ‘Double Seal’ process. Then an epoxy primer is applied before the shimmering silver paint. For further protection from UV rays, we apply a clear resin topcoat to finish. And to be doubly sure, a sacrificial anode is fitted and all connectors are waterproof. Corrosion doesn’t stand a chance.
