The new F8F now comes with 7.5% greater displacement for more torque and thrust, still offering the benefits of fuel efficiency, smooth quietness and light weight for which it is so well known around the world.
A new ergonomic design has been introduced for the tiller handle, which is not only a more convenient length, but features a comfortable to use, forward-mounted shift lever within easy reach and with better grip.
Handling and storage is easier too. The new slim shape, together with the re-designed tiller handle (which now folds in much further) means it takes up less space. There’s also a more comfortable carry handle and new resting pads that allow the engine to be stored rear side down.
These portable engines are very compact and efficient, with twin cylinder Single Overhead Camshaft configuration.
True portability and so easy to carry.Fresh Water Flushing system
An easy access, front-mounted connector allows you to easily flush salt and dirt from the waterways without having to run the engine: just connect a hose and you're ready to go. This is a very efficient way to reduce corrosion and extend the life of your outboard.
Shallow Water Drive system
Cruise towards the shore with confidence thanks to Yamaha's Shallow Water Drive system. Offering ample protection for your propeller, it allows you to get as close as you need to be, no matter whether you're cruising a murky lake or the crystal clear shallows of the sea.
Yamaha's Ideal Anti corrosion Protection
You need an engine you can rely on and Yamaha outboards are renowned for their durability which also means they hold their value. While a unique YDC 30 aluminium alloy protects the engine's exterior parts, a zinc coating, highquality stainless steel, and 5 stage exterior coating offer long-lasting protection, inside and out.
