Get Your Motor Running – World Beating Outboard Visits Mystery Creek

Get your motor running with a visit to the Boat and Fishing Show this weekend at Mystery Creek Events Centre. The show will be the only place in New Zealand to see the world’s first 300 Horsepower 4-Stroke Outboard Motor.

The Suzuki DF300 V6-Stroke Outboard Motor will be part of the celebration of the centenary of the outboard motor, brought in especially from Australia for the show and available in New Zealand later this year.

From the oldest to the newest:

Suzuki Marine’s new DF300 is the most powerful 4-stroke outboard in the world and at 4.0 litres, this new engine offers the largest displacement of any V6 outboard ever made.

The Boat & Fishing Show’s history of the Outboard Motor Special Exhibit also shows some of the oldest outboards ever made .
