An inflatable boat and its engine are not just a means of transportation, but give a whole range of sensations that make the experience of the sea truly complete. The motto of Suzuki, the Japanese motor company, and Marshall, a historic manufacturer of inflatable boats, is “Sea Adventures“, with which the two companies want to get in touch with the dynamic and very “empirical” world of young people at the basis of which is precisely the concept of “experience,” the direct and emotionally charged experience.
Marshall and Suzuki: fun for everyone from young people to all types of boaters
We tested the Marshall M2, which at 5.54 meters is the smallest inflatable boat in the M line, powered by Suzuki’s DF40A, which to date is the Japanese manufacturer’s best-selling “license-free” boat. The other inflatable boat we put under the magnifying glass is the 6.65-meter Marshall M4, powered by DF150A, also Suzuki. Both combinations demonstrate good maneuverability and responsiveness, a basic requirement for those who want to have fun along the coast, perhaps approaching coves and reefs accessible only from the sea. Another positive note is the low fuel consumption even at more “adrenaline” speeds, especially in the case of the 150-horsepower engine. Marshall’s inflatable boats want to reinterpret the brand’s history in a modern way, so at the base is a “ready to go” vehicle, the kind that when you decide to go out, in no time you can be on the water. no ifs or buts. Marshall inflatables synergistically match Suzuki’s motorization to be able to derive maximum performance for both. These inflatable boats are particularly suitable for young people looking for something extra in terms of adaptability and speed, but not only that: in fact, the ease of use of this combination makes it suitable for any age and type of boater.
