BOATING PA: Yamaha 130A

Purpose built from the ground up to go the distance harsh marine environments, Yamaha’s F130A sits between the F115 and F150 outboard engines and is ideally suited to boats in the popular 5 to 6m size range. Weighing in at 172kg, the F130A trims the fat by utilising a light and compact power trim and tilt unit and the latest light-weight materials throughout the engine and the cowl design. Applying technologies developed for Yamaha’s bigger power plants, the new F130A incorporates a cutting edge fuel injection system, along with state-of-the-art camshaft, air intake and electronic throttle valve technologies. Utilising a 16-valve, 1832cc, in-line 4-cylinder engine from the F115B, the F130A now includes the use of a single electronic throttle valve that interprets the input from the mechanical control at the helm and deliverers the optimum throttle movement for exact response and precision control. This system works in tune with a completely new fuel injection and ignition system. The F130A has been designed with a 5mm offset crankshaft for efficient combustion and durability as well as an enhanced lower gear unit to reliably transfer the extra torque to the water. Compact and light-weight in design, the F130A's performance and efficiency translates to fuel economy, reliability and performance.  For maximum performance, new SDS (Shift Dampener System) propellers are available from 9” to 16” in   aluminium and from 14”   to 24” in Stainless steel.  Conventional propellers are also available for custom fittings in stainless steel or aluminium from 11” to 25” in pitch.
