Honda Marine signs engine deals with two boatbuilders

Publish date:

Honda Marine said it has two new OEM supply agreements with Ankona Boats and Solid Craft Boats.

Ankona and Solid Craft are consumer-direct boatbuilders. Honda said its outboards are available now on product lines from both of them.

Honda is a new power choice for custom-built Ankona technical poling skiffs and flats boats. Based in Fort Pierce, Fla., Ankona builds boats with steering options that range from a simple tiller-steered outboard to a full-featured center console with a jump seat. Ankona buyers can choose from Honda Marine outboards from the BF25 to the BF60.

Honda Marine also was chosen as the exclusive outboard motor supplier to Solid Craft. Based in Wilmington, Ohio, Solid Craft builds single- and double-deck pontoon boats, tritoon boats, jonboats and pontoon islands and docks, customizing its products with features such as hardtops, multiple seating options and single or dual sliding boards.

The full line of Solid Craft pontoons, tritoons and jonboats now feature Honda outboards, ranging from the mid-range BF50 through the high-power BF200.
