Performance Bulletins

Pick a boat. Pick an outboard. See the performance.

Yamaha Outboard Performance Bulletins provide in-depth performance information on hundreds of boat and engine combinations.

To see how Yamaha outboards perform on a variety of boats, select your technology, horsepower range, boat type and manufacturer below. 

PLEASE NOTE: Performance Bulletins identify boat manufacturers as either PowerMatched™ Exclusive, PowerMatched, or non-PowerMatched builders.

PowerMatched System Warranty SymbolPowerMatched means that from stem to stern, a boat’s power system is comprised entirely of Yamaha components. There’s nothing more reliable out on the water.

PowerMatched Exclusive builders use only Yamaha outboards for their outboard-powered boats, and PowerMatch each power system.

PowerMatched builders may not use Yamaha outboards on every boat. However, every boat they rig with a Yamaha outboard also features a Yamaha PowerMatched power system. 

Look for the PowerMatched emblem when boat shopping. If you see it, you’ll know that a boat’s been certified PowerMatched by an authorized Yamaha marine dealer, and it’s covered by the PowerMatched Limited System Warranty, in addition to its outboard’s factory warranty.
