Honda Reliability - with Jet Power flexibility
The Jet 40 is perfect for boating in locations where normal prop driven boats can’t operate. Rocky bottom shallows, white river rapids, and even over sandbars – your Honda can take you there. The low-profile foot design allows a boater to maneuver in minimal depths without the fear of getting a propeller caught or damaged on rocky, rough bottoms, shallows, or other underwater obstacles.
Based on the BF60’s proven platform, the Jet 40 takes everything you love about the BF60 and adds the versatility of a Jet. The best maneuverability. Best in class high output charging. And of course, the best time out on the water.
Add in features like BLAST, Programmable Fuel Injection, a high performance heavy-duty gear case, Lean Burn Control, and variable speed trolling, and you’ve got a legendary motor that’s truly best in class. The Jet 40 engine Alert System that helps protect the engine by alerting the operator of conditions such as overheating, low oil pressure and over-revving and it comes with a freshwater port for quick engine flushing.
The best choice for navigating in shallow waters.
The Jet 40 goes where props can't. Shallow lakes, rocky rivers, rapids, sandbars - our Jet outboards are ready to explore.

*Based on EPA Specific Fuel Consumption Mode.
Variable Speed Trolling - available on optional tiller model
For fisherman who want to slow troll, Honda's variable speed control is available on an optional tiller. The system adjusts in 50 RPM increments between 750 RPM and 1000 RPM.
Open architecture electronic protocol allowing the operator to see engine data on a GPS or fish finder without additional gateway devices
Programmed Fuel Injection - Powerful performance

Superior Battery Charging - More usable power
There's always plenty of electric power with the 40 Jet. Honda's exclusive neodymium magnet flywheel enables these engines to produce nearly twice as many charging amps as some competitors. The high output helps keep battery banks charged all day, even when running multiple accessories. The 40 Jet develops a total 22 amps and 17 charging amps.
