75 HP 4-Stroke Midrange Outboard

Model BFT75

Tohatsu's 75 hp Four Stroke is one of the lightest outboards in its class, weighing in at just 359 pounds. This in-line 4 cylinder is equipped with SOHC, or single overhead cam, to deliver excellent torque and power. The BFT 75hp also features a Multi-port Programmed Fuel Injection system that delivers the precise amount of fuel/air to each cylinder. The result is an easy start and instant throttle response with superior fuel efficiency. Our 75 hp engine comes with a high output 44 amp alternator that produces nearly twice as many charging amps as some competitors.

The 75 hp four stroke is a great choice because it is our most advanced technology in a mid-range engine.

Engine Control Unit

BLAST® System - improves acceleration at low speeds

Boosted Low Speed Torque, or BLAST, improves acceleration at low speeds. A quick movement of the throttle control activates the BLAST® system, advancing the ignition curve quickly. This will greatly improve "Hole Shot".

Engine Control Unit

ECOmo® - Superior fuel efficiency

ECOmo® increases fuel efficiency by allowing combustion to operate on a leaner air/fuel mixture. At cruising speed, this engine runs on up to 30% less fuel** than others in its class.

**Based on EPA Specific Fuel Consumption Mode.


Three step trolling speed control

Multi-port Programmed Fuel Injection [PGM-FI]® - Powerful Performance

Programmed Fuel Injection delivers the precise amount of fuel/air response with superior fuel efficiency.


Three step trolling speed control

4-front Corrosion Protection System

A patented, "Double Sealed" multi-layered paint process, sacrificial anodes and stainless steel technology, along with waterproof connectors, all enhance corrosion protection.
