SUZUKI OUTBOARDS

 

Suzuki make marine engines from scratch, and the benefits really show in their 2.5 model: at 13kg it's the lightest water-cooled 4-stroke outboard on the market, by about 5kg. It also has a proper F-N gearbox, not a centrifugal clutch, so you can rev it up to start without being catapulted out of the dinghy when it comes to life!

The nearest rival for weight is the Honda 2.3, but this is air-cooled and makes a noise we don't like. Other than that most motors labelled 2.5 are actually a detuned 3.5 and weigh 18kg or more. (The Yamaha is a 2.5 only, a lovely motor, but weighs 17.5kg.)

Motor Boats Monthly gave the Suzuki 2.5hp "Best Buy" in their Jan 2013 issue.

Our price for the Suzuki 2.5 is £549.

We can also supply all other outboards from the Suzuki range. The 4, 5 and 6 (pictured here) are essentially the same motor in different states of tune - but the 5 and 6 also have a connector so that you can attach an external fuel tank (all three models have an internal tank).

These are single cylinder motors with a displacement of 138cc, weighing 25kg. As with the 2.5, that's amongst, if not the, lightest in class.

Our price for the Suzuki 6hp, standard shaft, is £1,020 (long shaft £10 extra).

The 8 and 9.9 models are twin cylinder 208cc motors, weighing 39.5kg and starting from £1900 (8, standard shaft).
 
 New in 2013, the 327cc, twin cylinder Suzuki 15 and 20hp "Lean Burn" outboard motors are genuinely revolutionary in class, offering a unique battery-free fuel injection system for quicker, easier starting and cleaner more fuel-efficient operation. At just 44kg they are exceptionally light for motors of this size. 

Our pricing for the 15 starts at just £2100, and the 20 at £2500, which makes them very good value for such high-tech and lightweight motors.
We usually have the smaller motors in stock but can get all Suzuki outboards at fairly short notice (subject to UK stock availability). We are based in New Milton, near Christchurch on the Dorset/Hampshire borders.
