Tohatsu 3.5 hp Four-Stroke Outboard


The 3.5 hp Tohatsu long shaft 4 stroke motor is the perfect outboard for a driftboat. With a driftboat, weight is an important consideration. The Tohatsu 3.5 long shaft weighs in at 43 lbs.

This portable best-seller has been upgraded with newly designed top and bottom cowl based on the Tohatsu Design Philosophy for Marine Products using Simpliq™ Technology with ergonomically designed front and back carrying handles.

In addition, you can now store your engine in 3 different positions without worrying about oil spillage.

The 3.5 hp is lightweight and has a four point vibration absorption system to minimize vibration. And with sensational fuel economy this little compact 3.5 hp engine has it all, making it one of the best choices available for portable outboard power.

We sell the 3.5 hp 20-inch long shaft outboard motor. We only sell the long shaft for driftboats. We do not recommend the 15-inch short shaft because it is necessary to use a motor mount on a driftboat. The motor mount raises the motor on the transom. The motor mount does three things:

  1. It allows the anchor bracket to remain in the center of the boat. No more offset anchor masts.
  2. It allows the motor to be put in the optimum tilt position with relationship to the water.
  3. It makes the motor easier to steer and swivel for reverse.
