The 8 hp Tohatsu outboard motor is a twin-cylinder 4-stroke Tohatsu that offers smooth, quiet, fuel efficient power in a very lightweight and compact unit. These Tohatsu outboards include a long list of advanced features that you’d only expect to find on larger, more expensive outboards, including an option for electric start. The 8 hp Tohatsu outboard is ideal for jon boats, small skiffs, small pontoons, and inflatables, as well as sailboat and “kicker” or trolling auxiliary applications. As with all Tohatsu outboard motors, the 8 HP is saltwater rated. Choose between 15 or 20 inch shaft length depending on your boating needs. .
