Hi
Does anyone have any experience with Tohatsu outboards? I am thinking of buying one and would like to know if they are any good as they are cheaper than Yamaha and Mariner ones.
Thanks
Richard

hi there read all the posts on boat section but never seem to be able to reply to any posts(due to lack of experience) but this one i can .i've just ran in my tohatsu 40 hp last weekend. pushes my seahog hunter faster than some speed boats,thats with two of us and all our gear.I was giving a fellow fisherman a hand last week cos he couldn't start his mariner,took of the cowling and i swear it was a tohatsu but i probably paid a lot less for mine.I read a lot of reviews from america about them and couldn't find any major moans

The new 50 2 stroke is a gem of a engine, sips juice. Tohatsu are the only manufacturer to warrant their engines for racing so that must say somethng. They are only badged Tohatsu in the country I think, in the rest of the world they are a Nissan, the parent company. I think their 4 strokes are actually made by Yamaha and rebadged and given a different cover.

Hi Richard
I have run tohatsus for the last 8 years and not had a days problem, like all engines if you run them in and maintain them well they will run for ever. As chrisP says the new 50hp engine is a peach.

Taff2's m8 in west wales is well worth ringing for a price if your in that area, I have just arranged with him to carry out my first service.

hope this helps
calmia

Hi Richard - I was a bit unsure about buying a Tohatsu - I ended up with a new 25hp 4stroke e/s. What a gem - always starts 1st time, very smooth (3cyl) and incredibly fuel efficient - our usual day's trip is between 20 and 30 miles and when we top up the tank for the next trip we need between 8 to 12 litres. This is generally at 3/4 to full throttle on a 16'6". All this and about a grand less than what I was going to buy. - Have a nose around the American site at www.tohatsu.com there is much more info there than on the UK distributer's site. Regards Steve.
