Jet Drive Outboards

f150 / f115 / f90 / f60 / f40


The adventure begins the second you start up a Yamaha Jet Drive four stroke. Propeller-free and powerful, these nimble four strokes boldly go where no conventional outboard would dare. Skinnies. Shallows. Rocky-bottom rivers. Sandbars. Shoals. Rapids. They’d all prove treacherous for a propeller driven outboard, but a jet drive is all over it. Lightweight, versatile and quiet, our jet drive four strokes come in a wide range of horsepower options to fit your boat and application.  Think of them as the SUV of outboards.

Convert jet power to horsepower

Surprising Power. You may be giving up the propeller, but you’re not losing an ounce performance. This chart illustrates jet power and its equivalency to prop shaft power.

Multi-Function Tiller Handle

Award-Winning Control. Yamaha jet drives are compatible with our award-winning, Multi-Function Tiller Handle. Its ergonomic design makes shifting easy, with less rotation needed to go from idle to wide-openthrottle. This, plus a max-grip throttle handle reduces operator fatigue. (Optional on all models except 150 (105) jet.)
