With the 2016 redesign of the F2.5, now all of Yamaha’s portable outboards are 3-Star Certified for Ultra-Low Emissions by the California Air Resources Board (C.A.R.B.).
Big power. Small size. With models featuring SOHC or OHV configurations, Yamaha Portables provide maximum power in minimal space.
Comfortable Operation. Convenient Storage. The redesigned F8 features an ergonomic, shortened tiller handle that hinges to fold close to the cowling for stable, flexible storage.
Here’s why so many boaters carry Yamaha reliability with them, wherever they go:
Yamaha Portables are incredibly light, weighing as little as 37 pounds. Talk about punch you can pack.
Easy to Carry
Select models feature built-in front and rear carry handles for maximum portability. Plus, recent re-designs have made several of our portables, well, even more portable. The F9.9 is 12% lighter than previous designs, and we’ve trimmed 23 pounds from our F6.
Our 5-Step Trim Adjustment and 3-Step Shallow Water Drive System (on select models) protects your propeller in skinny water, making these pintsized powerhouses extremely maneuverable and getting you where you need to go.
The smaller the motor, the less fuel it consumes, true. However, one of Yamaha’s portables actually made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for the most miles traveled on one gallon of gas, going 67.27 continuous statute miles.
Our Easy Oil Retention System allows the F6, F4 and F2.5 to be stored on their sides or front grip without oil leakage. Our F15 and F20 designs feature a water-cooled fuel pump, boosting power and preventing warm weather starting issues like vapor lock.
