Yamaha Complete Outboard Boat Engines
Outboard motors were a revolution for the marine hobby. Just fasten the motor on the back of the boat and you have all the power you need. Because the motor is removable, it's easier to maintain since you don't have to work in the bottom of your boat. With both two and four-stroke models available, Yamaha has an engine for every need.Two-Strokes
Two-stroke Yamaha outboard motors offer an incredible power to weight ratio, because every second stroke is a power stroke. Unfortunately, that same feature also means they are much louder than four-strokes because they're firing twice as often. Two-strokes are also much simpler than four-strokes, and rev up much faster. They are a great choice if you have a light boat and want to get up to speed fast.Four-Strokes
Four-stroke motors are bigger and heavier than two-strokes, but they are also quieter and much easier on the environment. They are also easier to run because they just need petrol, where a two-stroke needs oil mixed with the fuel. Despite the extra weight, they have more torque than a two-stroke, making them a better fit for large boats.Yamaha's Outboard Range
If you look at Yamaha boat parts and accessories you can find outboards ranging from as few as two horsepower all the way up to 350 horsepower. The small motors are great for trolling, while the biggest outboards are perfect for large boats and pulling skiers.Customising Your Outboard
Even a complete outboard motor can be customised. Add a larger head and you can increase the power. You can also take advantage of the fact that different Yamaha boat propellers can change your performance profile for better performance at low or high speeds so you can get the most out of your motor.
