Suzuki DF350A Wins Big at 2017 IBEX Show

Love boats?

You probably wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t, right? If you love boats as much as we at Natal Power Boats do, then we’ve got five words that are sure to get you excited:

International Boat Builder’s Exhibition & Conference (IBEX)

The above is an annual event held in Tampa Florida, USA, where the best of the best boat builds the world has to offer compete head-to-head for prestigious titles in the boating industry.

Suzuki Motor Corporation decided to take the powerful new Suzuki DF350A outboard motor during the 2017 instalment which ran from the 19th to the 21st of September – and what a good idea that was indeed!

The Suzuki DF350A flagship four-stroke outboard motor took home the National Marine Manufacturers Association’s (NMMA) 2017 IBEX Innovation Award for outboard boat motors.

So, what does this mean for the Suzuki DF350A outboard? Can we call it the best outboard boat motor currently on the market – in terms of what it offers boating enthusiasts and price?

You could, and you wouldn’t be wrong.

The IBEX Innovation Award is presented to new marine products demonstrating distinctive technological innovations while delivering outstanding consumer benefits, such as practicality and cost-effectiveness.

According to the 2017 IBEX judges, these were the factors that clinched the award for the Suzuki DF350A outboard:

  • At 4.4 litres, the Suzuki DF350A features the largest V6 engine displacement
  • The Suzuki Dual Prop System awards exceptional grip and acceleration
  • High compression ratio and efficient combustion achieved through the Direct Air Intake & Dual Injector
  • Dual Louver Systems efficiently separated air and water
  • Very low fuel consumption.

Still not convinced?

What if we told you that the Innovation Award won by the DF350A is the ninth such award Suzuki has won to date? This makes Suzuki the most-decorated outboard engine manufacturer in the marine industry!

When it comes to making boat motors – and making them well – Suzuki seem to be leading the pack.
