Why Choose Honda?

Solid Reliability

Our reputation for reliable engines isn't just legendary. It's proven. Many Honda outboards are designed and built on the same engine blocks used in Honda vehicles like the Accord, Odyssey, Fit, and Pilot - vehicles that have proven themselves over millions of miles. We apply the same exacting standards of quality to our Marine products. We don't skimp on materials, fit, or finish. Which means you can rest easy knowing you've got a dependable motor.

It's no wonder that all Honda outboards are backed by the only 5-year manufacturer's warranty in the Marine industry. But don't just take our word for it. Honda has won the National Marine Manufacturers Association CSI award for Customer Satisfaction fifteen years in a row.


Our warranty is the best in the business.  Just like you’d expect from Honda.

  • 5 Years – with No Strings Attached
    Yes, you read that right.  All new Honda Marine outboard motors purchased for recreational use from an authorized Honda Marine dealer will be warranted against defects in material or workmanship for five (5) years from date of purchase.  No catches.  No strings.  It’s that simple.

  • A Real, Factory Direct Warranty
    The True 5 warranty is offered and fully backed by Honda Marine for the life of the warranty.  It’s not a 3rd party “extended service” contract, like most of our competitors offer. 
    There’s a big difference: the third party warranty companies often are more concerned with limiting claim payouts than with satisfying your service needs. 

  • Non-Declining
    True 5 coverage is the same on the last day of coverage as it is on the first. This is not like "pro-rated" warranties that offer decreasing coverage as the warranty approaches its end date.
    With Honda’s True 5 Warranty, your motor is covered from top to bottom – from the first day to the last day of your warranty.

  • Fully Transferable
    Selling your boat? No problem. The original engine warranty still applies, even if it changes owners.

  • Nationwide Service
    Honda Marine has a network of over 1,000 dealers throughout the U.S. who are highly trained and equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment.  It’s all a part of Honda’s commitment to keeping you on the water and out of the service shop. Isn’t that what it's all about?

Honda Four Stroke Advantage


Honda has sold 4-stroke outboard motors in the U.S. for over 50 years, leading the way in 4-stroke technology. Why are 4-strokes better?

  1. Lower Operating Cost
    Four-strokes are approximately 50% more fuel-efficient than typical two-stroke outboard motors. No two-stroke oil is needed, reducing your costs even further

  2. Better technology means longer life
    - 2-stroke engines rely on gas or air to carry a thin oil film to critical components. 4-strokes bathe every internal component in oil for consistent lubrication. This design also helps cool engine components, which improves durability.
    - Ports in 2-stroke cylinders and pistons can accelerate piston and ring wear. Since there are no intake and exhaust ports in a 4-stroke cylinder or piston, they can operate with tighter tolerances for longer life

  3. More environmentally responsible
    4-stroke outboards are approximately 90% cleaner than typical 2-strokes. And 4-stroke motors do not release oil directly into the water. Honda outboards have ultra-low emissions. All of our engines exceed the highest CARB 3-Star rating to meet the rigorous California Air Resource Board’s standards for 2009.

  4. More pleasant operating experience
    4-Stroke outboards are up to 50% quieter than 2-strokes. Not to mention less smoke and smell. No two-stroke stink to ruin your day on the water!


Environmental Commitment

Honda has long been recognized as a leader in innovative technologies designed to reduce the environmental impact of its products. With improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, our engines are no exception.

Ever since the introduction of our first outboard in 1964, Honda has pioneered the development and production of 4-stroke outboard engines with low impact on the environment. Our vision is based on the philosophy of our founder that "Watercraft should not pollute the waters they ply."

Honda Marine believes that ultra-low emission levels are essential to the protection of our global waterways. Honda Marine's full line of current production models meets rigorous California Air Resources Board (CARB) 3-Star standards, ensuring their availability and regulatory compliance in all 50 states. Honda's full line of 4-stroke outboards meets the latest emissions standards put forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Environmental Support

Honda Marine is a proud partner with environmental organizations whose members work and volunteer to protect our planet’s natural resources. We salute the efforts of these organizations:

  • Living Lands & Waters Foundation, East Moline, Illinois
    Living Lands aids in the protection, preservation and restoration of the natural environment of the nation's major rivers and their watersheds. In 1997, Chad Pregracke (a commercial diver at the time) decided to clean up what he considers home – the Mississippi River. Leaving his full time job behind and garnering support along the way, Chad and a band of volunteers have cleaned up over 1200 miles of Mississippi River bank and have since added the Illinois and Ohio Rivers to their incredible mission. The team has collected over 7 million pounds of debris in that time.
