Yamaha Strengthens Portable Line-up - F4, F5, F6 – New Generation
Compact, light weight and powerful. These are the three goals engineers strive for in order to create a great portable outboard.
With Yamaha’s all new range of portable four strokes the men in white coats have delivered beyond expectations on all fronts.
Filling a vital horsepower bracket in the Australian market, the all new F4, F5 and F6 have been designed to be easy to use and exceptionally smooth running.
With a range of exclusive features, increased capacity for greater performance as well as the latest generation cowl design and graphics,
these new portables are sure to be a popular addition to Yamaha’s current engine line up.
Maintaining Yamaha’s reputation for the smoothest running four strokes on the market, these motors are fitted with low vibration rubber mounts between the power-head and bottom cowling.
Additional rubber mounts between the bottom cowling and the base of the tiller handle further reduce vibrations for more comfortable driver control.
For easy transport and mounting these engines are fitted with an ergonomically designed grasp on the front of the motor and a large carry handle on the rear.
The engines also feature Yamaha’s unique oil leak prevention system. This ingenious innovation allows the owner to store or transport the engine on either side or its front without leaking engine oil.
This means worry free transport in a car boot and hassle free storage.
Starting has never been so easy with the use of Yamaha’s easy start decompression device.
This system releases some of the pressure in the cylinder when the manual starter is engaged. This means the engine can be started easily by drivers both young and old, hot or cold.
These engines feature a 3 step shallow water drive system, an extremely useful feature for tackling Australia’s shallow rivers,
estuaries and creeks as well as a 5 step trim adjustment that can be modified depending on water conditions and boat load for optimum engine performance.
All models in this range come with tiller handle and manual start and are available in both short and long shaft configurations.
A choice of two newly developed factory propellers added to the existing range of small horsepower props gives these engines added versatility for a wide range of applications.
As part of Yamaha’s ongoing commitment to the environment, these engines have been tuned for optimum efficiency and low emissions and are rated as three star ultra low emission engines.
Yamaha outboards are available through an Australia-wide network of authorised Yamaha outboard dealers. All Yamaha 4-stroke outboards are supported with
a full 4-year manufacturer’s warranty and all 2-stroke outboards are backed by a 3-year warranty – standard conditions apply.
All Yamaha outboards are available with the unique “Protection Plus” package that allows customers to access extended service protection,
Yamaha Marine Insurance as well as DatadotDNA theft protection for more confident and worry free boating.
