Sharp and sleek with V6 power

From the pioneers in 4-stroke technology comes the BF250. It’s the result of 50 years of research and development, which has set new standards in the 250 horsepower class. Welcome to Honda’s wild side.

It's not all about the knots

The BF250 is without doubt the flagship model for more reasons than just horsepower.

This incredible outboard provides a host of exclusive technologies that make it the best for both recreational and commercial use. NMEA 2000® compliant and featuring a host of racing innovations, the BF250 is a sleek and versatile motor that gives you exactly what you need, when you need it. Long-term reliability is important too, especially if you depend on the water to make a living. Remember, if your engine isn’t working – then neither are you.

Explosive performance

A PGM-Fi fuel injected, 24 valve, SOHC, 3.5 litre, V6 engine – you better hold on to your hat.

If it sounds to you like an engine that should be in a fast car, then you would be half right. Most of our engineering ideas and creations are born out of the vast knowledge and commitment to developing power – and race winning performance – for over 60 years. VTEC™, for example, was first used commercially in the awesome Honda NSX sports car. With innovative additions especially for marine like BLAST™ and ECOmo, this engine with its unique dual air-intake system is the very best in class for economy – and low emissions too.

Worth a good look

You're always in the know with the multi-functional Honda Speedometer and Tachometer gauges.

These gauges are fully NMEA2000® compliant; just plug them in, set them up and you’re on your way. They give you engine information like temperature, how much fuel has been used and tank level – it's all there, right in front of you. So no excuses for forgetting to fill up your tank now… 

It's never idle

Modern onboard electronic equipment needs a high level of electrical support. So we’ve built a high-output alternator into these engines, so you’ll never be short of power with the BF250.

The gauges display engine alerts in the unlikely event you have a problem – like water in the fuel or low oil pressure.

Slow ahead, and back again

Precise control at slow speed is just as important as high-speed, especially if you’re fishing or negotiating tight spots on a river or lake. The BF250 may be a big V6 engine, but it performs equally as well when you need to make slow speed manoeuvres.

It hauls fast

The slim and sleek hydrodynamic design isn't just about good looks. The Honda gear case efficiently transfers all that horsepower straight into the water.

The slim gear case has an extremely low drag coefficient, which improves performance and economy at high speed.

When you combine the innovative technology of the stronger transmission inside the motor with the low drag, you’ll find you’ve got a high-performing and economical engine to hang on the back of your boat.

Geared for speed

The hydrodynamic gear case – slim for a big motor – has a super-low drag coefficient, and the gears within are machined and honed to ultra-fine tolerances. Working together, they reduce friction at high speed.

It can haul heavy too

You’ll be very happy with improved fuel economy at any speed; and with a gear ratio of 2:1, it will push you along with ease. The BF250 is also very versatile, allowing you to attach a bigger 16-inch propeller for more thrust if you have a larger, heavier boat.

Our winning ways

From the world's racing circuits, to the waters of the world.

In 1959 we entered the Isle of Man Motorcycle TT race with dreams of winning the world championship. We made our presence felt two years later by finishing first – as well as second, third, fourth and fifth. Today’s machines are proof that dreams can come true, and improving their performance is a continual challenge – and joy – for us.

Track technology

Proven technology from the racetrack is passed on to our marine engines. Every innovation, no matter how small, is like a trophy to us. We’re always looking around the corner to see what’s coming next.
