Yes, they are made by Suzuki and are actually very good, especially for the money. Sort of a cheap sounding name so I can understand the initial concern.

The Suzuki Spirit has already been nailed down.

I believe the Force motors are what used to be Chrysler boat motors.

In the force motors later years they were owned by mercury. They had a chrysler engine with a mercury lower unit.

IMO an oars better than a Force, then again just my opinion.

+1

Those motors are what made Bayliners so cheap.

We have a 25hp Spirit. Hard to get parts. I had to go to Bismarck. It is not running now and we replaced it. So, if anyone needs one for parts, we can get rid of it.I don't remember what went wrong at the end. We did get twenty years or so of use out of it.
