Tohatsu engines from 60hp all the way to 250hp uses the same technology as Honda. Designed specifically for heavier loads, the BFTW 60 hp “High Thrust” model has a larger gear case and lower gear ratio that is specifically designed to give additional thrust for pontoon boats, work boats and heavier fiberglass boats.
The BFTW 60hp also features Boosted Low Speed Torque to deliver exceptional hole shots and Lean Burn Control for outstanding fuel economy at cruising speeds. The BFTW60 comes standard with a high output 22 amp alternator that produces nearly twice as many charging amps as other competitors. The BFTW 60 hp High Thrust model delivers everything you need plus more in an outboard.

BLAST® System - improves acceleration at low speeds
Boosted Low Speed Torque, or BLAST, improves acceleration at low speeds. A quick movement of the throttle control activates the BLAST®system, advancing the ignition curve quickly. This will greatly improve "Hole Shot".
ECOmo® - Superior fuel efficiency
ECOmo® increases fuel efficiency by allowing combustion to operate on a leaner air/fuel mixture. At cruising speed, this engine runs on up to 30% less fuel** than others in its class.
Multi-port Programmed Fuel Injection [PGM-FI]® - Powerful Performance
Programmed Fuel Injection delivers the precise amount of fuel/air response with superior fuel efficiency.
4-front Corrosion Protection System
A patented, "Double Sealed" multi-layered paint process, sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.
Multi Function Tiller Handle
Ergonomically designed shift lever offers smooth shifting for convenience and comfort. Throttle friction allows fine-tuning of the tiller for safety. Up front shift lever, PTT switch, and engine alert lamps provide added convenience.
