High Thrust Outboards

t60 / t50 / t25 / t9.9


Anglers. Families. Sailors. They all have their own vision of a perfect day on the water. However, those very different days are all powered by the very same class of outboard—Yamaha’s High Thrust four strokes. Available in a range of horsepower from T9.9 all the way up to the beefy T60, our high thrust outboards have the muscle to move heavy pontoons and sailboats or to be your kicker for a full day of fishing.

MAX your outboard look. Accessorize your T9.9 HP outboard with the new Sport Cowl, which is designed to complement the look of the V MAX SHO line. It’s made to stand out either alone or as part of a multi-engine configuration. Visit your local dealer.

The water's best weight lifters.

C.A.R.B. Three-Star Rated

Clean-Burning Power. All Yamaha High Thrust outboards are 3-Star Rated for Ultra-Low Emissions by California Air Resources Board (C.A.R.B.), and meet all federal EPA requirements.

T9.9 now 12% lighter

The incredibly compact T9.9. A recent re-design on our T9.9 made it even more compact, and 12% lighter.

Let’s take a look at some of the advantages that make Yamaha High Thrust outboards the power of choice for so many boaters:

More Thrust
These feisty four strokes serve up twice the thrust of comparable two strokes in the 2000-3000 RPM range.

Max Muscle
Dual Thrust™ propellers (optional on T50/T60 and standard on the T25 and T9.9) redirect exhaust flow away from the propeller, reducing ventilation and increasing thrust up to 60% in forward and 70% in reverse.

Award-Winning Control
Yamaha High Thrust outboards are compatible with our award-winning, Multi-Function Tiller Handle. Optional on all high thrust models, this tiller handle’s ergonomic design makes shifting easy, with less rotation needed to go from idle to wide-open throttle. This, plus a max-grip throttle handle reduces operator fatigue, so you can spend more time on the water.

Yamaha High Thrust outboards just seem to get smarter and more powerful, year after year. Let’s take a look at their unique engineering.
