As a modern machinery manufacturing factory, Dolphin is equipped with advanced outboard motors production lines using the assembly line method and sophisticated computerized machines. Dolphin adopts imported equipment in producing and testing. Tightening torque testers and moment calibration instruments are made by German Desoutter and leakage testers are made by German Innomatec. Control systems are from Siemens. Servo machines are made in Japan. Automatic spreading machines, multi-layer and spray painting process have been existed in our production lines. The perfect quality assurance can make sure our customers will get outboard motors with satisfaction, every motor must be through strict testing before leaving factory. Dolphin also has a professional team which is made up of engineers with full experience and rich knowledge in design and production. So, we can always develop products which will be suitable for the whole market. Still now, we already have extensive product lines: petrol outboard motors including two stroke and four stroke and diesel outboard motors very popular in many countries. With superior performance, stable operation and good corrosion resistance to saltwater, Dolphin is extremely popular with customers. Over the past years, we have consistently emphasized innovation in tech and management, devoting to ensure that your time on the water is safe and enjoyable.
Dolphin produces outboard motors into two types: two-stroke and four-stroke.
Two-stroke outboard motors: 3.5HP, 4HP, 5HP, 8HP, 9.8HP, 9.9HP, 15HP, 25HP, 30HP, 40HP, 60HP.
Four-stroke outboard motors: 2.5HP, 4HP, 5HP, 8HP, 9.9HP, 15HP, 25HP.
2HP - 4HP: These motors are perfect for very small boats. You can use them on inflatables, canoes, small sailboats, portable boats, and 8-12ft light weight jon boats. If the boat you are using is light enough for you to carry with one person and drafts about 2-4 inches, these motors are ideal. Another attribute is that most have integral fuel tanks so they are completely self-contained. Glide through the water at about 5-10 mph, push a boat faster than trolling motors will.
5HP - 8HP: These are your workhorse mid-range portable light-weight outboard motors. These motors will plane out small inflatables, portable boats, canoes, and jon boats. These motors are nice because they are powerful and still light enough to transport with ease. These motors are perfect for many small to midsize sailboats and to use as kickers on boats less than 20ft. These motors are ideal for boats that weight around 50-250lbs, range from 8 to 14ft and can be carried with two people or less. You can expect to go about 10-18 mph with one person on a light boat, work great for trolling, sailboats, and emergency back-ups. Sometimes, motors of this class will perform differently when more than one person is aboard.
9HP - 18HP: These are your powerhouse small outboard engines. These motors are very versatile and are used in almost every small boating application. These motors are extremely popular for boat owners who need the power to get to distant locations. They are also popular among fisherman who have at least 2 occupants aboard or have heavy gear to transport. These motors are often used on large sailboats ranging from 16-25ft. They are also used on jon boats, large canoes, 9-12ft inflatables, and small fiberglass boats ranging from 11-16ft. Boats in this class usually weight from 120 - 600lbs, can be transported and moved around fairly easy. You can expect to go about 15-25mph on light boats.
20HP - 35HP: These are borderline mid-range outboard motors. These outboard engines are the most popular outboards since they bridge the gap between small and medium size fishing boats. These engines will move your light fiberglass whaler-type skiffs and large jon boats at great speeds. Many fisherman who need to travel 5-30 miles will go with no less than a 20 hp outboard motor. These motors are great for light boats ranging from 13-18ft as well as sailboats and pontoons. These engines will also work with large inflatables, large canoes, 14-18ft aluminum jons, and large sailboats. If you fish with 3 or more people and wish to get up on plane you should go with no less than a 20 hp outboard. Go about 20-30mph on most light boats.
40HP - 60HP: These outboards are ideal for your 14-18ft fiberglass fishing and cruising skiffs. They work well on your 16-22ft pontoon boats and 20ft+ aluminum heavy-duty jons. Ideal for getting to the fishing grounds at 30+ mph. Great for fishing with 3 or more people.
