Honda introduced the first 4-stroke outboard engine in America more than 40 years ago. Back then, we were ahead of our time. Today, we’re still leading the way in engineering innovations and precision manufacturing. From the BF2.3 to the BF250, Honda outboards deliver best-of-class features across the line.


Apex Marine remains unique by focusing solely on the compact pontoon boat market. In 2006, Apex pioneered this market with the introduction of the Qwest line. The Qwest line was designed for those who need or want a smaller pontoon boat but desire high end furnishings. This was the first and remains the only luxury compact pontoon boat.
