There’s a simple reason Honda’s four-stroke marine engines lead the world in performance, reliability, fuel efficiency and environmental responsibility… the company has been making them for a long time!

Almost 60 years ago, back in 1964, when other companies were dealing with various forms of two-stroke technology without a future, Honda adopted a policy of producing only four-stroke outboards.

The company’s commitment to first-class four-stroke outboard technology can be found in the words of Mr. Soichiro Honda, when he issued the following directive to Honda staff:

“Two things are most important: if the engines are not reliable, people’s lives can be endangered. Second – the cleanliness of the sea. What will happen to our oceans, lakes and rivers if all that exhaust mixed with oil is pumped into the water? I don’t care if everyone else does two-strokes – Honda has to do four-strokes.”

As the world’s largest engine manufacturer, forged and tested on racetracks and roads around the world, Honda is relentless in applying forward thinking to its outboards and challenging the rest of the industry to follow suit.

So when you think about buying a new boat or refitting an existing one, remember who was there from the beginning. Consider an experience that will take you out to sea with whisper stealth, solid reliability, a reliable warranty and engine technologies that no one else offers.
