News broke in September announcing Honda Marine's new BF350 V8 outboard and one of the first boats it was on was a 2024 Tahoe 2585 Cascade QL from Tahoe Pontoons. The triple 27-inch diameter Waveglider pontoon hull paired well with the new engine. The newly redesigned Ensign III helm stand using exclusive Enduro Flex Form technology provides a modern take on Rotocast to produce a high quality and durable helm stand without sacrificing function or aesthetics.
As for the Honda 350hp, its the engine manufacturer's first ever V8 and it is a big step from its previous 250hp flagship outboard. Honda says the new outboard provides smoother power throughout the operating range, improved ergonomics, and it’s 17 percent more fuel efficient at cruising speeds than its competitors. It also operates on regular 86 octane fuel and will be available early next year. The new Honda comes with a five-year factory warranty, and is offered in two colors – Aquamarine Silver and Grand Prix White. (www.tahoepontoons.com // www.marine.honda.com)
