Honda Marine Receives Boating Industry Top Products of 2017 Award .for BF6 Outboard Motor

If you have let your subscription to Boating Industry magazine lapse, you may not have seen the well-respected publication’s choices for the Top Products of 2017 awards. But please take note—one of the trophies did go to the all-new Honda Marine BF6 portable outboard motor.

The Boating Industry awards recognize the best products for the marine industry, including boats, engines, and accessories.  This year’s winners were chosen for their innovation, impact on the marine industry, and how they advance their category overall.

One product that met all of those criteria was the Honda BF6, a lightweight, six horsepower outboard engine designed to power small jon boats, tenders, inflatables, and sailboats. This all-new model provides four class-leading characteristics: user friendliness, easy start, one-touch stop, and portability.

In terms of user friendliness, the new innovative rubber engine mounts reduce vibration and noise, while simultaneously producing a smoother ride and more comfortable operation at the tiller handle. At 1.5 liters, its internal fuel tank is the largest in its class, delivering more than 40 minutes of run time at wide open throttle.

The BF6 is also easy to start, features a class-exclusive one-touch stop button, and is among the lightest motors in its class, making it highly portable.

“Receiving a 2017 Top Products Award from Boating Industry magazine is a tremendous honor—one that underscores the Honda Marine hallmarks of portability, performance and reliability for our smaller outboard motors,” said Will Walton, assistant vice president of Honda Marine. “The all-new Honda BF6 model integrates superior performance, smart design, advanced technology, and innovative features our customers appreciate and value.  Lightweight and easy to start and stop, and with a new internal fuel tank and new motor mounts, the Honda BF6 runs quietly and smoothly while delivering the longest continuous running time in its class.”

The BF6 carries a starting US manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $2,213, and is available at Honda Marine dealers nationwide.
