Nissan Marine Expands Their Four-Stroke Lines For 2004

Press Release

Carrollton, TX - Nissan Marine is expanding their 4-stroke line for 2004 with two new lightweight and compact models: the new 8 and 9.8 hp 4-strokes. Both models are the lightest in their class at a mere 81.5 lbs! The new 8 hp and 9.8 hp 4-strokes are ideal for a variety of small to medium-sized boats such as inflatables, dinghies, sailboats, aluminum fishing boats and small pontoon boats. Their light weight also makes them ideal for use as a trolling motor in conjunction with a large horsepower single outboard. Both models come with a choice of 15", 20" shafts, and a 25" shaft is available for the 9.8.

Nissan Marine's new 8 and 9.8 hp 4-stroked are compact 2-cylinder, SOHC engines that have been manufactured to comply with US EPA 2006 & CARB 2008 (3-star rating) emission regulations. They offer outstanding performance, a smooth, quiet ride, and remarkable fuel efficiency. Initial tests show the 8 consuming .85 US gallons per hour at WOT, and the 9.8, 1.0 gph.

The new 8 and 9.8 hp 4-stroke outboards offer a quiet ride thanks to a high-capacity air silencer. A dynamically balanced crankshaft and newly designed upper rubber mounts greatly reduce vibration to ensure a smooth ride through the entire rpm range. A fast-idle choke system on the carburetor eliminates the need for difficult choking techniques and enables simplistic staring. The digital CD ignition system is designed for immediate starting in all sea and weather conditions. The CDI also helps with quicker throttle response and smoother trolling.

A larger splash plate also minimizes water splash, especially at higher speeds. In addition, the gear case is equipped with a trim tab to stabilize steering torque in all sea conditions while also helping to protect the engine from electrolysis and corrosion. There is recoil starting on both electric start and remote control models and an optional 12v, 6amp alternator is available as well.

The existing line includes a 30, 25, 18, 15, 9.9, 6, 5 and 4 hp 4-stroke outboards. All 2002 and later Nissan Marine 4-stroke models come with a 3-year limited warranty.
