High Thrust

FT60 | FT50 | FT25 | FT9.9 | FT8

Harness one of our High-Thrust workhorses
When you want raw power and precise handling, our FT models are the perfect answer. Ideal for sailing, fishing and utility boats, these high-thrust, high-torque engines set high standards of performance, with minimal noise and vibration – and maximum fuel economy.
FT models use Yamaha’s patented Dual-Thrust propeller to provide full thrust in Forward and Reverse – making light work of manoeuvring a heavy boat.
CDI/TCI Micro-computer Ignition offers easy starting and reliability whatever the conditions, and high-output alternators provide extra starting power, even after long periods at low RPM. FT Series engines are like powerful workhorses – designed never to let you down.

Features

Special gear ratios for higher thrust

The FT engines are purpose designed to deliver greater thrust and torque than a conventional engine and their special gear ratios help prevent cavitation and prop slippage. They work in combination with other unique features to provide the ideal power source for boats where load-hauling capability is more important than high speed.

Dual-thrust props for maximum power in Forward & Reverse

The special propellers fitted to the FT Models are not only of a larger than normal diameter, but have low pitch blades, designed to maximise thrust in both Forward and – by re-directing the exhaust flow – in Reverse too. This gives greater manoeuvrability, which is especially helpful when handling a heavier boat.

Y-COP immobiliser security system (FT60 & FT50)

Yamaha’s unique immobiliser security system (Y-COP) is simple, easy to use and highly effective – a neat and simple remote control locks and unlocks the engine at the push of a button. This prevents your outboard engine being taken for an unauthorised joyride, offering you peace of mind when leaving your boat unattended.

Yamaha Digital Network system (FT60 & FT50)

The FT50 & FT60 are compatible with Yamaha Digital Network Gauges. Giving accurate information on performance and efficiency, these include a Multifunction Tachometer with RPM, Hours Run, Trim Angle, Oil Pressure, Warning lamps and Variable RPM control – and a Speed/Fuel Management Gauge with Speed, Tank Capacity and Fuel Economy.

Smart new styling and practical features for FT9.9 and FT8

The latest FT9.9 and FT8 feature Yamaha’s sleek, new-generation compact design top cowling. Other new features are the bigger, more comfortable carrying handle, the rest pad provided for easy storage in the vertical position – and the shift lever now mounted conveniently to hand on the new, easy-fold tiller handle.

Wide Range Power Trim & Tilt (FT60, FT50 & FT25)

Discover the versatility and power of a Yamaha engine. Quick response, via push-button control, makes trim and tilt adjustments swift, smooth and easy. The confidence-giving handling control provided by the wide trim range includes negative trim settings to improve acceleration and help bring the boat onto the plane quickly.

High-output alternator

Never get left short. A standard feature on our FT series of outboard engines, 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 multiple accessories.
