Honda reliability with the flexibility of a jet drive.

The 40 Jet is perfect for boating in locations where normal prop driven boats can’t operate. Rocky bottom shallows, white river rapids, and even over sandbars – your Honda can take you there. The low-profile foot design allows a boater to maneuver in minimal depths without the fear of getting a propeller caught or damaged on rocky, rough bottoms, shallows, or other underwater obstacles.

Based on the BF60’s proven platform, the 40 Jet takes everything you love about the BF60 and adds the versatility of a Jet. The best maneuverability. Best in class high output charging. And of course, the best time out on the water.

Add in features like BLAST, Programmable Fuel Injection, a high performance heavy-duty gear case, Lean Burn Control, and variable speed trolling, and you’ve got a legendary motor that’s truly best in class.

Powerful Performance

The best choice for navigating in shallow waters.

The 40 Jet goes where props can't. Shallow lakes, rocky rivers, rapids, sandbars - our Jet outboards are ready to explore.

Instant Acceleration

Honda’s exclusive BLAST system improves acceleration at low speeds. The result? Instant acceleration and improved hole shot.

Mikuni® Intake System

The lightweight Mikuni® long tube intake track system helps build low end torque.

Superior Fuel Efficiency

Best In Class Fuel Efficiency

Lean Burn Control increases fuel efficiency by allowing combustion to operate on a leaner air/fuel mixture. At cruising speed, this engine runs on up to 20% less fuel* than others in its class.

PGM-FI

Multi-port Programmed Fuel Injection adds both easy starts and improved fuel efficiency - without sacrificing performance.

Legendary Reliability

Honda Quality

Our outboards share many technologies and components used in Honda vehicles, with all the benefits of years of proven Honda engineering, precision manufacturing and reliability.

Unmatched peace of mind

Honda's True 5 Warranty is the best in the business. This transferable, non-declining warranty is the same on the last day as it is on the first.

Engine Alert System

The Engine Alert System uses visual, audio and RPM reduction circuits to alert the operator of over-heating, low oil PSI and over-revving.

4-Front Corrosion Protection System

The Corrosion Protection System is a patented "Double Sealed" multi-layered paint process. Sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, internally painted cooling passages, and a freshwater flushing device, all enhance corrosion protection.

Easy Ownership

Superior Battery Charging - More usable power

There's always plenty of electric power with the 40 Jet. Honda's exclusive neodymium magnet flywheel enables these engines to produce nearly twice as many charging amps as some competitors. The high output helps keep battery banks charged all day, even when running multiple accessories. The 40 Jet develops a total 22 amps and 17 charging amps.

Simplified maintenance

The little things make a big difference. The BF60 is designed to reduce maintenance time and cost for routine tasks like oil and filter changes and valve adjustments.

On-board connectivity

NMEA 2000 protocols allow engine data to be interfaced with on-board systems and systems displays, such as SONAR or GPS.

Fishing Friendly Tiller

3 Position Tiller Handle

The 3 Position Tiller Handle adjusts to your comfort for easiest hull maneuverability.

Variable Speed Trolling

Push button troll speed makes trolling easy, with 50 RPM increments from 750 rpm to 1000 rpm. Standard on tiller models; optional on remote models.

Easy Access Controls

The center mounted, ergonomically designed tiller handle is longer for improved handling. Adjustments for throttle and steering friction allow easier control. Up front shift lever, PTT switch, and engine alert lamps provide added convenience.
