Propellers


Each propeller is designed for a specific horsepower range and application. Choosing the right one can enhance your boat's overall performance and improve your outboard’s acceleration, top-end speed, handling and fuel efficiency. To help you find the right propeller, Yamaha’s full line is categorized by application: Large Boats, Medium/Small Boats, Family/Watersports and Bass/Bay/Flats Boats.

Yamaha propellers are designed to harness the power of Yamaha outboards. Engineered using proprietary information, manufactured to our stringent standards for quality and tested for performance, nothing will maximize your outboard’s performance quite like a Yamaha propeller.
