A great day on the water begins with Honda.
Whether you’re driving a bass boat, center console, or a pontoon, you’ll appreciate the powerful possibilities you get with the award winning Honda BF225 and BF200. Honda Marine sets the industry standard for performance and durability, offering the perfect blend of advanced technology and reliability for any boating enthusiast.
Like VTEC technology, for smoother acceleration and power throughout the engine’s operating range. A 90 AMP “On Demand” belt driven alternator, providing the highest capacity available for your accessory power needs. Honda’s automotive derived large displacement, 3.5 liter V6 delivers the perfect balance of power, torque and fuel economy. Not to mention legendary quiet and reliability.
Reliable, efficient 4-stroke design
World-renowned Honda quality combines proven reliability and superior fuel efficiency, with no oil mixing.
Instant Acceleration: BLAST® System
Boosted Low Speed Torque, or BLAST, improves acceleration at low speeds. A quick movement of the throttle control activates the BLAST® system, advancing the ignition curve aggressively. “Hole Shot” is vastly improved as more horsepower gets the hull up on plane quicker.
Extreme Duty Gearcase – better durability
The BF200 and 225 offer a larger, 5 inch diameter gear case, built to withstand the extreme duty cycles of law enforcement and military patrol boats.
On-board connectivity – NMEA 2000
NMEA 2000 protocols allow engine data to be interfaced with on-board systems and systems displays, such as SONAR or GPS.
Superior fuel efficiency – Lean Burn Control®
Lean Burn Control® increases fuel efficiency by allowing combustion to operate on a leaner air/fuel mixture. At cruising speed, this engine runs on up to 30% less fuel* than others in its class.
*Based on EPA Specific Fuel Consumption Mode.
Ultra low 3 star CARB emissions – Environmentally concious technology
Environmentally conscious technology. All Honda Marine engines exceed the highest CARB 3-Star rating to meet the rigorous California Air Resource Board’s standards.
True 5 Warranty – unmatched peace of mind
Honda’s True 5 Warranty is the best in the business. This transferable, non-declining warranty is the same on the first day as it is on the last.
Smooth acceleration and power: VTEC® Technology
Honda’s Variable Valve Timing & Lift Electronic Control (VTEC®) system provides power where and when you need it. VTEC gives you a broader, flatter torque curve and smooth power delivery throughout the engine’s operating range. The result is a superior combination of power, torque and fuel economy. VTEC is the modern replacement for displacement
Engine Alert System – Protects your engine
The ECM monitors vital engine functions and prevents engine damage by alerting the operator of:
- Water in Fuel
- Low Oil PSI
- Critical Engine Function
Counter Rotation Available
Improves efficiency, hull maneuverability and decreases driver fatigue.
Multi-port Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) – Powerful performance
Programmed Fuel Injection delivers the precise amount of fuel/air to each cylinder. The result is easy starts and instant throttle response with superior fuel efficiency.
Oxygen (O2) and Knock Sensors – Optimum Efficency
Oxygen (O2) and knock sensors help determine the correct fuel flow and ignition curve to maximize performance and fuel efficiency.
4-Front Corrosion Protection System – Fights the elements
A patented, “Double Sealed” multi-layered paint process, sacrificial anodes, stainless steel technology, and waterproof connectors enhance corrosion protection.
Positive Lubrication – better durability
A crankshaft-driven, automotive-style trochoid oil pump ensures long-term durability of critical engine components.
2-Pass Cooling System – better cooling for better durability
The unique cooling system maintains an even temperature on all cylinders. The incoming water passes through each aluminum exhaust manifold, then through the cylinder heads and back around the exhaust manifolds before entering the exhaust. This results in increased cooling efficiency and long-term durability!
Built-In Pitot Tube
Built-in pitot tube in the gear case eliminates the need to drill holes in your boat for speedometer installation.
