Tohatsu has just launched its new 60HP outboard engine in Ireland through O'Sullivan's Marine. The legacy of the MFS50 model has been passed on to the MFS60, weighing in at under 100kg, it is the lightest in its class writes Brian O'Sullivan.

Outboard motors are about a whole lot more than just the specs. A truly great motor delivers it all – performance, safety and the ultimate ease of use. Tohatsu has been manufacturing engines since 1922, and they stand by their quality, offering a 7-year conditional warranty.

Lighter weight means more self-bailing, less swamping, easier planing and superior fuel efficiency at 3.09 litres per kilometre at wide open throttle. Top speed up to 59.1km/hour.

Tohatsu has listened to what their customers want, and they have certainly delivered - simple architecture, easy to use interface and absolute quality.

Equipped with standard features such as variable idle speed from 650 to 950 rpm’s, a low gear ratio giving you the increased low end torque your boat needs, a freshwater flushing system designed to make routine flushing easier, and a high output 21 amp alternator, the MFS60 provides the industry-leading features you expect from Tohatsu.

Tohatsu engines come with a one-of-a-kind direct injection technology, which has revolutionised environmental performance. Offering a full range of 4 stroke engines from 2.5HP to 250HP and 2 stroke engines from 3.5HP to 50HP, these outboards are powerful and robust, yet some of the lightest available.

Here at O’Sullivan’s Marine, we offer a high level of expertise in marine engines, from supply to servicing, we offer the whole package and are proud distributors of Tohatsu, Suzuki and Honda outboards. We are currently offering special offer prices on outboards, contact us for more details here

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
