Over half a century of experience Yamaha’s first outboard motor – the P-7 - was released to the Japanese market in 1960, marking the start of over 50 years spent delivering the very best outboards that the boaters across the globe demand. Yamaha engineers share a boating Manufacturing passion with the many millions of Yamaha users worldwide, outboards since 1960 listening to what they have to say, and understanding how products are used in the real world. Whether it is a fisherman in Indonesia or a family on the Norfolk Broads, a Yamaha outboard motor will be the reliable partner that their boat needs. Over 9,000,000 outboard motors built over 50 years, by one company - that is a testament to the pedigree and talent that Yamaha Motor Corporation has and its commitment to the marine industry. First class outboard engines are in Yamaha’s DNA. Outboard power that suits you Outboard engines cover such a wide range of applications and boats that choice is a prerequisite for outboard manufacturers. Yamaha gives you more choice than any other manufacturer so you can get your outboard power exactly how you want it. More choice means By offering a wide range of models and options, Yamaha can better suitability ensure that there is a suitable outboard for every user and every application. Tiller and remote control variants, as well as a High Thrust range for pushing displacement hulls, are all available and all designed to get the most out of the boat they are rigged to. Specifying the correct engine to match the characteristics of your hull will reward you with optimal performance and economy. More choice means better suitability, which is better for the boat, better for the engine and better for you. PEDIGREE Quality – the best components Yamaha have always strived to ensure the best quality components and raw materials are used in its outboard engines. The unique YDC-30 alloy is a perfect example of how the very best materials are used in Yamaha outboard engines. Built using Yamaha A combination of aluminium, silicon, magnesium and titanium YDC-30 marine alloy provide industry-leading corrosion protection for significant components within the engine. Advanced manufacturing techniques and precision engineering can be found in every detail of every engine. Whether you are five miles out to sea or five miles down the river having a quality outboard engine will mean that you spend more time doing what you want to do and less time repairing and maintaining your engine. Yamaha delivers the quality that you can rely on. CHOICE Fast, efficient parts service Yamaha is a global brand, so that means global back-up which is great, but what you also need is efficient local support and that’s exactly what Yamaha is so good at - using global resource for practical local advantage. Genuine outboard Global parts supply parts are centrally stocked in a giant European warehouse and support network can be delivered to the UK very quickly. In the harsh marine environment service and maintenance is critical so having an efficient and effective parts back-up means that any time off the water while these tasks are performed is kept to a minimum. Important for leisure boaters and absolutely essential for every rescue and professional application; Yamaha’s first class back-up is something which is ready and waiting. Durability – essential for work From our ACP-221 paint process to the sacrificial anodes, Yamaha engines are built to last. ACP-221 demonstrates Yamaha’s dedication to durability. This unique 5-layer painting process is something which many have re-created but none 5-layer paint finish have been able to match. Combined with the YDC-30 alloy protects the engine ACP-221 completes Yamaha Ultimate Corrosion protection. A sequence of primers, undercoats and acrylic resins are baked for adhesion and hardness then sealed in by a final coat of clear urethane lacquer. But don’t take our word for it; consider the multitude of marine professional users who all use Yamaha engines because they know that Yamaha’s durability can withstand the most demanding use. Yamaha engines are built to last...and last...and last.

Why choose Yamaha? ...the Yamaha difference V8 • V6 • 4 cyl • 3 cyl • 2 cyl • 1 cyl Our marine engines come in a variety of layouts because we utilise the optimum type of engine design for each different application so that it provides instant power in a relaxed, effortless manner. All Yamaha OHC outboards use a quiet and durable toothed drive belt to control the camshafts. The larger models feature VCT - Variable Camshaft Timing that boosts maximum torque,, especially in the cruising 2000-3500 rpm range. Much attention is paid to exhaust design to ensure that the engine is both quiet and efficient. Yamaha’s In-bank™ exhaust system for example has resulted in a more compact engine, while power surge chambers ensure maximum combustion. Intake length design is also critical to achieve the best balance of power and torque. Individual ‘pulse-tuned’ long intake tracks deliver air to the cylinder at the precise density and volume needed for optimum gas flow rates and efficiency. Motor mounts are often taken for granted but remain a vital component. Everything at Yamaha is built tough! Forged aluminium mounts and oversized mounting brackets add extra strength and banish noise and vibration. Ultra-tough gearcase lower units have super strong bearings, bearing surfaces and gears, while the hydrodynamic profile of our gearcases gives the optimum low drag streamlined underwater design while maximising cooling water pick-up. State-of-the-art 4-stroke Technology Many exclusive technical features set a Yamaha apart - and have helped create a unique reputation for user-friendly performance with reliability and durability, Shown here are just a few of the many advantages that create ‘The Yamaha Difference’ and which you can expect to enjoy on most models in the range. Our driving ambition is to combine the lightness and compactness of the reliable high-performance Yamaha 2-strokes with the economy, smoothness, sophistication and eco-friendliness of the 4-stroke engine. Innovation and development have produced a Yamaha Outboard range that is a complete line-up of ultra-modern, efficient 4-stroke engines, headed by the world’s first V8 production 4-stroke outboard, the F350. Each engine in the range uses the very latest Yamaha marine technologies, revolutionary and unique engine layouts, ingenious intake and exhaust systems. Overseeing all this is a system of micro-computer controls, monitoring every aspect - from fuel mixture, to combustion efficiency and maintenance scheduling. Above all, Yamaha’s 4-stroke development has been successful because we never tried to adapt or modify ordinary, everyday automotive engines, as many others have done. We build only pure marine-specification 4-stroke engines from scratch. To help preserve the marine environment Yamaha has pioneered the development of new clean-burn technologies, yet accepted no compromise on power, performance or usability. Our outboards are now faster, quieter and more economical than ever before. Only Yamaha gives you such a wide choice. From the handy, portable F2.5 to the adrenalin-raising performance of the F350 - with an impressive line-up of variants in between - we make it very simple to find the perfect match for your boat and your style of boating.
