Marine Products’ Dave Ingram, has this to say after the Vancouver Boat Show.

“Suzuki Canada is very pleased with the results from the Vancouver Show. The new DF350A engine attracted a lot of attention and interest of the boating public.
Everyone stopped to admire and ask about the sleek new addition to Suzuki’s lineup.
