Suzuki Marine launches new, game changing DF325A outboard
Posted on 21st January 2018
Suzuki Motor Corporation is proud to introduce the new DF325A 4-stroke outboard – a product that perfectly balances superior power and thrust, all within a lightweight and stylish design.
Unveiled at the Düsseldorf International Boat Show in Germany, the high-tech and innovative DF325A has been designed to be robust, easy to use and versatile, making it the ideal outboard for large boats, whatever the task and whether for commercial or recreational use.
Sharing the same revolutionary technologies as the recently-launched and highly anticipated flagship DF350A, including contra-rotating propellers, dual louver system and dual injectors, Suzuki has stepped it up with the new model by engineering it to run on 91 RON fuel – a world first and game changer for high performance outboards over 300 horsepower.
Osawa Yasuharu, Executive General Manager, Global Marine and Power Products Operation, Suzuki Motor Corporation said the DF325A is a welcome addition to Suzuki’s range of ultimate 4-stroke outboards.
“The latest high spec, high output outboards all require high octane fuel. As far as we know, there is no other outboard over 300hp that runs on RON 91, which is regular fuel in some key markets,” said Mr Yasuharu.
“This also makes the DF325A a very attractive outboard for the commercial sector as it is packed with the very latest outboard technologies, which will deliver the ultimate boating experience,” Mr Yasuharu said.
Suzuki’s latest outboard features its proven 4.4 litre displacement block which gives tremendous torque and makes it the largest displacement V6 on the market today. Combined with a compression ratio of 10.5:1, the DF325A also delivers impressive fuel economy and reliability.
The DF325A will be produced at the Toyokawa Plant in Japan, with first deliveries expected in March.

Main features of DF325A
Compact, 4,390cm3 4-stroke V6 cylinder engine giving tremendous torque and largest displacement V6 on the market today. Compression ratio of 10.5:1 to deliver impressive fuel efficiency and reliability
Direct intake system and dual louver system for cool and dry air
- This revolutionary approach ensures a direct flow of air whilst eliminating water intake, even in the face of the most severe on-water testing.
- The Dual Louver System incorporates a double shield of blades, each one designed in a dog-leg shape. The outer row of blades removes the spray from the boat and the inner louvers capture and drain the remaining mist. As a result, intake air is free of moisture and kept close to ambient temperature.
Contra-rotating propellers, Suzuki Dual Prop System
- The innovative contra-rotating propeller design provides more grip underwater, and because contra-rotating propellers distribute the engine's torque evenly over two propellers, the torque per propeller decreases and gear diameter can be reduced. A reduction in gear diameter has allowed the design of a smaller, and far more hydrodynamic gear case.
- Sporty, aggressive, and innovative styling. Quality design that distinguishes the DF325A from its competition and makes it look the part on and off the water.
