Wrong, Tohatsu makes them for Nissan, Mariner, Mercury in the range 3.5 to 30 HP in 4 strokes and 3.5 to 50 HP in 2 strokes same models. Tohatsu and Nissan are presently being comercilalized in USA, Nissan has slight more price. Brunswick Corp has a joint venture with Tohatsu in their Japanes manufacturing facility at Komagane plant along with big core parts for bigger Merc/Mariner engines.
In the good old days Brunswick used to have a collaboration with Yamaha.
