5.3L V8 Offshore Outboard



Yamaha’s purpose-built 5.3-liter 350-horsepower V8 outboard surges to the front of the fleet when it comes to thrust and trust for moving big, offshore beasts. Now Yamaha’s new F350C model becomes the only outboard in its horsepower class to feature a five-year limited warranty, because reliability and confidence are important when you’re taking control of the open water.

Five-Year Limited Warranty provided by Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. on new F350C model only with production dates of March, 2016 forward.

F350C Reliability

A day at sea with quad F350Cs, reliability X 4 on the Hydrasports 4200.

Deliberately designed to withstand the harsh demands of a marine environment, the V8 F350C features:

Wave-Crushing Power
The world’s first 5.3-liter four stroke outboard, the F350C provides unparalleled displacement and up to 45% more thrust than 250hp-class outboards. When it launched in 2007, its industry-rocking 60° DOHC, and 32-valve, 5.3-liter design redefined offshore power. It’s taken almost five years for the competition to even remotely catch up.

Torque Curve Benefit/Power-to-Plane:
Variable Camshaft Timing advances and retards the angle of the intake camshaft to dramatically increase power and throttle response in the low- and mid-rpm ranges. This gives the engine substantially greater torque between 2000 ~ 3500 RPM—and if you have a large offshore boat, torque is what matters. It’s the power to plane and move a large offshore craft—and owners will tell you nothing does that like a Yamaha V8 F350C.

Deep-Water Durability
To handle the incredible power of the F350C, its Ultra-Tough Gearcase features hardened gears and high-strength, oversized bearings and bearing surfaces. It also features strong, forged motor mounts and an oversized bracket specifically designed to harness its massive power and thrust while minimizing vibration and noise.

Corrosion Resistance
Saltwater wreaks havoc on metal engine components. Our Ultimate Corrosion Protection System (UCP II™) places sacrificial anodes throughout the powerhead, mid-section and lower unit, diverting corrosion away from vital engine components.           

Fuel Efficient Design
Burning just 31.7 gal/hr @ 6000 RPM (depending on application), the F350C offers incredible fuel efficiency for such an unbelievable Ultra Low Emissionamount of power. This comes in handy when you’re putting hundreds of miles on in a day.

Intuitive Control
Harness the power of the V8 F350C with the Helm Master® fully integrated boat control system. It supports twin-, triple- and quad-outboard configurations, and makes docking and maneuvering a large offshore boat—even those exceeding 40 feet—very intuitive.
