Tohatsu outboards are generally priced lower than Yamaha outboards while being similar or sometimes better in performance. We rarely receive complaints regarding Tohatsu engines, and they are often more powerful than Yamaha outboards when comparing models with the same horsepower. For instance, the 40hp Yamaha is a few hundred ringgit more expensive than the 40hp Tohatsu, but the Tohatsu performs better in terms of raw power due to having a 3-cylinder design (3 pistons) while the competition utilizes a 2-cylinder design. Another another example is the 18hp Tohatsu outboard, which is only a few hundred ringgit more than the 15hp Yamaha engine.
On the flip side, Yamaha outboards are much more popular throughout Sarawak and hence it's a little easier to obtain spare parts for and have your engine serviced, though Tohatsu is not too far behind in this regard.
