Why choose Suzuki?
There are many compelling reasons why more and more commercial boat operators are choosing Suzuki outboards to power their craft. Suzuki’s lightweight and compact outboards deliver plenty of performance with low-end torque, instant throttle response, smooth acceleration and fast top-end speed, whilst large diameter propellers aid low speed maneuverability.
Suzuki’s V6 family of 250-350hp outboards have a unique narrow 55-degree cylinder block and an offset drive shaft making them extremely compact and ideal for twin installations.
Low cost of ownership
Key to any commercial maritime operation is consistent reliability and ease of servicing, which Suzuki is renowned for. All Suzuki outboards are optimised to be as fuel-efficient as possible with all electronic fuel-injected engines (DF9.9B – DF350A) benefitting from its class-leading Lean Burn Fuel Control technology. This unique technology supplies the appropriate amount of fuel and air mixture depending on operating conditions to give greater fuel economy over the entire rev range.
In addition to reducing fuel costs, Suzuki’s genuine parts and service kits are readily available and competitively priced to give customers a lower cost of long-term ownership.
Nationwide customer support
Suzuki has an excellent network of supporting Dealers across the UK and Ireland providing reassurance and back-up to commercial operators with a view to keeping any downtime or time off the water to a minimum.
Sustainability and CSR
With Suzuki clients can rest assured that they have a supplier that is continuing to work in partnership for a better environment. With its ‘Clean Ocean Project’ which has been running since 2010, Suzuki has been running a worldwide network of beach clean ups every year.
Alongside this, Suzuki continues to reduce the amount of plastic packaging that it uses for its products and instead opting for more eco-friendly alternatives. This has resulted in a reduction of over 28 tons of plastic materials.
In addition, Suzuki also is looking to harness its reputation for innovation in order to find solutions for some environmental issues. This has resulted in the launch of its world-first Micro-plastics Collection Device, which is now available on all 115hp and 140hp outboard models and is due to be rolled out across the range. Put simply, this clever filter collects micro-plastic waste from the seawater that is pumped through the engine as part of its cooling system.
Mark Beeley, Head of ATV and Marine for Suzuki GB, said, “Seawork is an essential part of our calendar. It provides us with a great opportunity to discuss opportunities with our existing commercial customers and potential buyers. We have an extensive range of outboards that are more than suited to powering a wide variety of workboats. We look forward to welcoming boat owners, operators and builders onto our stand (Q6) on the quayside to have a chat over a tea or coffee about how we can help them deliver their next project.”
