Vortex releases new 18hp outboard

VORTEX has released a new two-stroke 18hp engine, offering customers more variety in their budget friendly outboard range which now includes over 15 models.

Available as a long and short shaft the new 18hp offers customers an upgrade from the 15hp when they need a little extra power but can’t add too much weight to their boating package.

The 18hp weighs in at 40kg for the long shaft option making it only 4kg heavier than the 15hp model.

The 18hp offers a complete new engine design with a strong mounting system and a larger tiller handle making those tight turns easier.

The 18hp uses a standard CDI ignition system complete with charging circuit, a larger shift lever located in the traditional position on the side of the engine and offers a maximum output of 13.2Kw at 5000Rpm.

The water pick up grates are positioned under the cavitation plate, allowing clean water to run through and cool the engine and also making it ideal for trolling with less chance of sucking in weeds and grass.
