2017 Yamaha Outboards

F20 | F15

Small-engine convenience, big-engine performance
If you’re looking for the winning combination of easy handling and great control, look no further than the F15 or F20.
Versatile twin-cylinder, 4-stroke engines, they combine power and responsiveness to deliver an always-smooth ride. Standout fuel economy also means that they’re kinder to the environment, with exhaust emissions cut to a minimum.
Enjoy the extras that a Yamaha outboard also brings, benefits – such as computer-controlled ignition, a special light-load starting system, a water-cooled fuel pump, and a large-volume silencer – normally only found on larger engines. For commercial, professional or leisure use, this all adds up to a winning formula.

Features

Steering friction

You’ll find the F20 and F15 very easy to control and comfortable to drive, thanks to their many features – from the front-mounted shift lever and single-lever steering friction adjuster to the light-load recoil starter. A built-in handle on the steering bracket and resting pads on the rear, make for convenient handling and portability too.

PrimeStart™

Start your outboard engine as easily as starting a car – even from cold. Exclusive to Yamaha, the PrimeStart™ system ensure that the engine fires first time, every time you engage either the Electric or Manual Start.

High-output alternator

Never get left short. A High-output alternator ensures that power is always available to start the engine – even after prolonged periods of idling or when you’ve been running at low revs and using numerous accessories.

Shallow Water Drive system

Cruise towards the shore with confidence thanks to Yamaha’s Shallow Water Drive system. Offering ample protection for your propeller, it allows you to get as close as you need to be, no matter whether you’re cruising a murky lake or the crystal clear shallows of the sea.

‘Start-in-gear’ protection

With this kind of power, a false start can be an uncomfortable experience. But Yamaha’s ‘Start-in-gear’ protection eradicates the worry. On Manual Start models, the starter is locked when any gear other than Neutral is engaged. On Electric Start versions, the power supply to the starter motor is isolated until Neutral is selected.

Fresh Water Flushing system

An easy-access, front-mounted connector allows you to easily flush salt and dirt from the waterways without having to run the engine: just connect a hose and you’re ready to go. This is a very efficient way to reduce corrosion and extend the life of your outboard.
