Simon Higham tests the all new 115hp Parsun 4 stroke outboard

In the bustling world of marine engines, where innovation and power meet the relentless demands of the sea, the new Parsun 115hp 4-stroke outboard motor emerges as a true game-changer. As the director of Bill Higham Marine, I’ve had the privilege of putting this marvel of engineering through its paces aboard my trusty Piscator 580 fishing vessel, and the results have been nothing short of spectacular.

The Parsun 115hp, with its advanced EFI system, promises efficiency and power in a compact package. Weighing in at a mere 173kg, this lightweight powerhouse is a perfect match for a wide range of boats, from nimble fishing boats spanning 17ft to 22ft, to sleek speed boats and ribs measuring 5.5-6.5m. Its design is a testament to Parsun’s commitment to innovation, blending state-of-the-art technology with practical functionality.

Over a rigorous 6-month test period, the Parsun 115hp demonstrated exceptional performance and reliability. Cruising at 3500 rpm, the Piscator 580 glided through the water at an impressive 26mph, all while maintaining a remarkably efficient fuel consumption rate of just 12L/hr. When pushed to its limits, this engine didn’t just perform; it excelled, reaching a top speed of 47mph with ease. The real testament to its power was its ability to effortlessly pull out a mono skier weighing 18 stone, not to mention its prowess in towing twin ringos without breaking a sweat.

One memorable day, with the boat loaded with 8 passengers totaling 600kg, the Parsun 115hp still managed to maintain its frugality, consuming only 20L/hr at cruising speed. This level of efficiency and power speaks volumes about the engine’s capabilities, making it an ideal choice for both leisure and sport activities.

What sets the Parsun 115hp apart, aside from its impressive specs, is the unique 3-year no-quibble warranty terms. This warranty is a bold statement of confidence in the product’s quality and reliability, offering peace of mind without the stringent conditions of dealer servicing that often accompany marine engine warranties.

In conclusion, the Parsun 115hp 4-stroke outboard motor stands as a paragon of marine engineering. Its blend of refinement, smooth operation, quiet performance, and fuel efficiency makes it an unparalleled choice for boating enthusiasts. In the world of outboard motors, where value and performance are paramount, the Parsun 115hp is, without a doubt, the best bang for your buck. Whether you’re skimming across the waves in a speedboat or casting lines from a fishing boat, this engine is poised to elevate your maritime experience to new heights.
