Van Sports Center stocks the complete line of Tohatsu outboard motors for their reliablility, durabulity, and fuel economy. The Tohatsu outboard is made by one of Japan's oldest outboard manufacturers who have been producing high quality, durable motors since 1956. The motors were originally developed for commercial Japanese fishermen who needed a motor that could run for days on end, no matter what the weather. The ocean-tested engineering that enables these outboard engines to work under demanding and harsh conditions makes Tohatsu one of the toughest, most reliable engines available.
One of Tohatsu's most impressive feature besides their pricepoint would have to be their warranty. The standard five year warranty shows their commitment to providing not only a great value, but a dependable motor with unmatched performance. The warranty provides customers with one of the best standard warranties in the industry on the entire line of TLDI Series two-stroke and four-stroke outboard engines. The second would have to be the fact that Tohatsu offers all of the rigging components with their outboards at one low price. That means when you purchase a remote steer motor of theirs, you are also going to get the control box, throttle and shift cables, propeller, and fuel water separator.
All Tohatsu outboard engines meet or exceed the U.S. EPA emission regulations and have earned the California Air Resource Board (CARB) 3-star Ultra-Low emission rating.
