Honda Marine has signed to supply outboard engines to Dutch boat manufacturer Maxima.

The boatbuilder produces a range of classic-style sloops from 4.85m to 7.5m suitable for inland waterways or for use as tenders.

“We are delighted to welcome Maxima to the Honda family where they join Highfield Ribs as one of our boat builder alliances,” said Steve Morris, head of power products at Honda (UK).

“The Maxima range not only offers an appealing entry level cost, it fits perfectly with our premium brand values and opens up our marine offering to customers who live further inland and closer to rivers, lakes and canals than the coast.”

He added: “Our ambition is to get more people out on the water and our boat builder alliance is key in helping make this happen.

“These partnerships make the boat buying process much simpler and enable our dealer network to offer a complete turnkey solution – a customer can simply walk into one of our Honda Marine dealerships and purchase a whole boat package in one easy step.”

Leendert Klop, Maxima Boats MD, added: “Honda Marine was a natural choice for us as we share several key brand values including heritage, reliability, quality and performance.”

Honda’s outboard engine choice ranges from its BF8 to BF150.
