F9.9 | F8

Our lightweight heavyweights – now with more power
Packing more power on the water doesn’t have to mean dragging a heavy outboard onto your boat because the lightweight F8 and F9.9 are perfectly portable. Their comfortable-to-use, integrated carrying handles help too.
Discover the joys of whisper-quiet operation and excellent fuel economy, now blended with even more of our smooth, reliable power. Yamaha’s CDI Ignition System ensures reliable, first-time start-up, so with the twist-grip throttle and F-N-R gear system, it all adds up to easy, safe handling.
These are engines with many talents, making them ideal for tender duties, for short fishing or family expeditions – or if you use your boat as a reliable work partner.

Features

Latest-generation engine design – and more power

These engines are very compact and efficient, with twin cylinder, SOHC (Single Overhead Camshaft) configuration – and a stylish new compact design top cowling in the style of our latest-generation engines.

Advanced tiller handle design and controls

On these latest models, an ergonomic design approach has been adopted for the tiller handle and controls. The handle is a very convenient length and the shift lever is ideally positioned on the handle itself, within easy reach, for confident and relaxed control. The easy-fold arrangement makes carrying and storage more convenient.

True portability – and so easy to carry

Both these engines are renowned for their portability and feature design refinements which make them even handier to use than ever. The bigger, more comfortable carry-handle is now integrated with the steering bracket – and the redesigned tiller handle folds neatly back to make it even more compact – a great help for storage.

Rest pad for vertical storage pos

The latest models feature some other very practical refinements that make storage a breeze. The special rest-pad allows you to store the engine vertically – or simply lie it on its back on the deck or floor – and with the new fold-back tiller handle, you can be sure these engines will take up less of your precious space on board or at home.

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.

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.

Yamaha’s Ideal Anti-corrosion Protection

You need an engine you can rely on and Yamaha outboards are renowned for their durability – which also means they hold their value. While a unique YDC-30 aluminium alloy protects the engine’s exterior parts, a zinc coating, high-quality stainless steel, and 5-stage exterior coating offer long-lasting protection – inside and out.
