Honda recognized by environmental group

Honda Marine was named “Donor of the Month” by Ocean Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of whales and their environment.

The groups partnered in 2007 to put a Honda 40-hp outboard on the tender for Ocean Alliance’s research vessel, RV Odyssey.

“No program punishes an outboard like an oceanographic non-profit that runs programs for literally years at a time,” said Ocean Alliance CEO Iain Kerr. “The outboard motor has to start every time, it has to have lower emissions and it has to be reliable.”
