Tohatsu Outboard Motors, got started in the marine engine manufacturing industry by building reliable outboard motors for commercial Japanese fishermen who needed an motor that could run for days on end, no matter what the weather. The ocean-testing engineering that enables Tohatsu outboard motors to work under these demanding and often harsh conditions makes Tohatsu one of the toughest, most reliable engines available on the market today. From commercial fishing to marine transport, recreation and competition, Tohatsu outboard engines deliver high-performance, safety, reliability, fuel efficiency, signature design and durability.

Founded as the Tohatsu Corporation in 1922, the company first manufactured railcars. Over the next thirty years, Tohatsu would grow to produce radio-controlled generators and motorcycles. It wasn’t until 1956 that production of the first Tohatsu outboard engines began. In 2005, Tohatsu opened a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the mountainous region of central Japan, with the capability to produce 200,000 outboard motors per year. All Tohatsu outboards are produced in Japan, serving a strong global customer base of satisfied boat owners.

With a 5-year warranty on Tohatsu outboards, customers enjoy great value as well as a commitment to high performance. This warranty applies to the entire line of Tohatsu two-stroke and four-stroke outboard engines.
