nissan outboards

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a NS5B 5hp Nissan outboard with built in tank for my scanoe. It starts and runs great and looks brand new. It is a mid 90s model. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with these outboards. I was hoping to find a evinrude or johnson but this came along at the right time. Are these reliable outboards? Should I look to sell it and find something else. Any input would be wonderful. thanks.

Nissan outboards are Tohatsu. They are sold worldwide so parts should be available if needed. There is a Nissan dealer in Oakville and the marine dealer in Port Dover beside Tim Horton's also sells them.

 

Is your scanoe rated for a 5hp? That would move along real nice.

actually it is rated for a 3 hp. for some reason. The other scanoes i came across all were rated for a 5 hp. Maybe coleman had 2 different models.And to answer your question it pushes it along real nice.

I bought a 9.8 HP Nissan for use as a kicker. I'm very satisfied with it. I have a manual start and it always starts first pull and never misses a beat.
