Go where props can’t.

The 65 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 Jet Drive 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 BF90’s proven platform, the 65 Jet takes everything you love about the BF90 and adds the versatility of a Jet. You’re looking at Honda’s most advanced technology – a lightweight powerhouse in a mid-range package.

Starting with VTEC technology, a superior blend of power, torque, and fuel efficiency at any speed.

Add in Multi-port Electronic Fuel Injection, BLAST, Lean Burn Control, and a 3 Way Cooling system, and you’ve got a motor that is explosive upon acceleration, economical, efficient, and durable.

Powerful Performance

The best choice for navigating in shallow waters.

The 65 Jet goes where props can't. Shallow lakes, rocky rivers, rapids, sandbars - our Jet outboards are ready to explore.

Power where and when you need it.

High Performance Gearcase

Designed to get you going faster, the high performance gearcase reduces drag, greatly reduces hull porpoise and minimizes spray, increasing acceleration and top speed.

SOHC 4 Valve/Cyl. Design - max power

The powerful 1.5L, 4-cylinder design utilizes a single overhead cam and two intake valves to deliver maximum torque and power.

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.

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

Legendary 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.

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.

Corrosion Resistance

Honda’s exclusive 4-Front Corrosion Protection System offers a patented, double-sealed multi-layered paint process. Fresh water flushport flushes debris and saltwater out of the engine.

Engine Alert System

The Engine Alert System monitors vital engine functions and prevents engine damage by alerting the operator of: overheating, water in fuel, low oil PSI, battery, over-rev, and critical engine function.

3-Way Cooling System

Three separate cooling systems keep the cylinder heads running cooler for long-term durability.

Easy Ownership

High Output Charging for more usable power

The high output charging system features a 44 amp "On Demand" belt-driven alternator with 35 charging amps. This superior design reduces heat buildup and keeps battery banks charged all day, even when running multiple accessories.

Simplified maintenance

The little things make a big difference. The 65 Jet is designed to reduce maintenance time for routine tasks like oil and filter changes.

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.
