Suzuki outboards are chosen and trusted by experts and professionals all over the world. The reliability, fuel efficiency and long life are top of the list for their successful lives.
With every single Suzuki engine being designed specifically for the severe conditions of marine use, each of its 2.5hp – 300hp outboards is incredibly reliable, durable and fit for purpose, which is a massive reassurance to commercial boat operators. It also goes some way to explaining why more and more commercial organisations around the world are choosing Suzuki to power their craft.
This is clearly demonstrated in the following two example case studies:
In the UK, broadcaster and marine biologist Monty Halls uses a DF200AP to power his RIB.
Monty commented, “As a broadcaster, explorer and marine biologist, I truly depend on my outboard to get my job done, often in testing conditions. The key characteristic of any outboard motor is reliability and I have never come across engines as reliable as Suzuki; it’s as simple as that. The quietness of the DF200AP also makes it comfortable on the water, and after countless hours of hard use it continues to exceed my expectations as a tough, quiet and lightweight four-stroke outboard.”
In France, Oyster farmers Nicolas and Mathieu Mureau use twin DF300AP outboards to power their current boat.
“I’ve been a Suzuki user since 1980. We have two fishing boats equipped with two Suzuki DF300AP, and one Suzuki DF175 outboards. In 2015, we replaced two DF250s with DF300APs, after more than 3000 hours of service. The arrival of 4-strokes brought us big advantages: the service interval is three times longer than 2-strokes, and the fuel efficiency is twice as good; they’re also much quieter and make less smoke! This type of engine is essential in our industry: it has to be profitable, reliable, and long-lasting when we’re moving several tons of oysters over long distances. That’s why we’ve been using Suzuki V6 for 12 years. We used other brands in the past, but now Suzuki is our recommended brand: the most reliable in the market.”
Suzuki outboards are available in over 120 countries worldwide and its strong commercial product offering is backed up by extensive networks of Dealers and technical support, with people that understand the demands of commercial operators. They know that ease and speed of servicing is also a priority and unsurprisingly Suzuki outboards are designed with this in mind, minimising time off the water and maximising customer satisfaction.
