New Suzuki DF300B to make UK debut at Southampton International Boat Show

Suzuki is launching its new DF300B outboard to the UK market at the Southampton International Boat Show.

The DF300B is the latest outboard model to join Suzuki’s existing ‘GEKI’ series of dual-propeller outboards.

The new DF300B has a maximum output of 300 hp and features many of Suzuki’s world-renowned advanced technologies, which include:

·  Suzuki’s unique Dual Prop System, which efficiently converts engine output into forward thrust by combining two contra-rotating propellers.

·  2-Stage Gear Reduction, in which the gear ratio is first reduced in between the crankshaft and the driveshaft (1st stage reduction), and then reduced again within the gear case (2nd stage reduction), to deliver powerful propulsion by rotating large diameter propellers that have high thrust efficiency.

·  Compact, 4,390 cm3 four-stroke V6 engine that boasts maximum output of 300PS with regular petrol.

The DF300B is a large capacity outboard motor which was developed to meet the needs of customers who wish to have the same advanced technologies as Suzuki’s flagship DF350A outboard installed on a 300-horsepower class unit.

The main benefit of combining the highly-efficient contra-rotating propellers and a compact 2-Stage Gear Reduction, is that it is able to deliver high propulsion power, meaning the DF300B can be rigged onto heavier boats. With the use of regular (91 RON) petrol as its fuel, it can be offered for business and leisure use.
