Important news for all boaties, anglers, and water-sports enthusiasts! Big changes to laws relating to outboard motors effective from July 1, 2019.

In July 2018 a new Outboard Emissions Law was passed. This law sets new emission standards for small outboard motors with power of up to 19kW, including all types of marine engines.

With the new emission standards, boats with carburetor-based outboard engines that have high emissions are no longer allowed to operate.

If you own one of these boats, then it’s time get a new outboard engine that’s compliant with the outboard emissions law.
