Outboard engine promotions tend to be quite low-key affairs. Various strategies over the past decade have involved everything from free carry bags to free fuel tanks; free servicing, free membership offers and even free prize draw entries with the purchase of an outboard engine. Hardly earth-shattering incentives we think you’ll agree. So how about a ‘buy-one-get-one-free’ promotion?
Believe it or not, Suzuki GB has announced its intention to offer customers a free portable outboard engine with every large horsepower model purchased. George Cheeseman, sales and marketing manager for Suzuki GB’s marine division, explains: “We consider our product quality to be market-leading and we wanted to have a retail offer to match. All of the large horsepower models included in the offer benefit from class-leading fuel efficiency, fantastic reliability, a free Datatag security system and free rigging kits. We believe this offer will create even more demand for our outboards, ensuring that when it comes to their boat package or repowering options, customers have another reason to insist on a Suzuki.”
The tenets of the offer are quite simple. If you buy an engine in the DF40A to DF60A range, you get a free DF2.5 (S or L – short or long shaft); if you buy an engine in the DF70A to DF90A range, you get a free DF4 (S or L); if you buy an engine in the DF100A to DF175TG range, you get a free DF5 (S or L); and if you buy a motor in the DF200A to DF300AP range, you get a free DF6 (S or L). However, the promotion is designed to be flexible, so if you have different requirements in mind, you should contact your local Suzuki dealer or boat builder about a package tailored to your needs.
With savings of up to £1,125 on offer, it’s certainly an impressive initiative, but if you’re interested, you will need to be quick, as the promotion only relates to engines bought before 31 August 2015.
