When it comes to outboard motors, few would argue that no other brand has proven itself in Australian conditions like Yamaha.
Yamaha developed its very first outboard in 1960 and has continued to grow and refine a huge line-up of engines. Yamaha’s line-up features the world’s only V8 350hp four stroke, a full range of Australia’s favourite and trusted two strokes, as well as an ever-growing range of four strokes featuring the very latest technology available in the marine industry.
When Yamaha released the F350 V8, it redefined what customers expected in an offshore outboard. The F350 is like nothing that has ever been produced before. The big V8 has proven to be extremely successful, powering big offshore rigs, powerful cats and even blisteringly-fast, rigid-hull inflatables. The performance this motor delivers is truly unbelievable — just ask anyone who has been lucky enough to step onboard a vessel powered by this monster.
Looking further down the range, the F250 features a stunning power-to-weight ratio due to its variable camshaft timing, matched with the latest fuel injection technology. The F250 is the only engine in its class to feature Drive by Wire Controls that electronically control throttle and shift. This system gives the driver superb control and responsiveness and is far superior to conventional cable control systems.
Over the last three years, Yamaha has been refining their range of small horsepower four strokes, recently announcing a new range of small portables, the F4, F5 and F6. Yamaha also produces a class leading F15 and F20 and introduced new fuel injected F30 and F40 in 2009, stand out performers in terms of fuel economy and power. Add to this a top selling F50 and a critically acclaimed F60 and you can see why Yamaha is so hard to beat from 0 — 60.
