    Default New Lightweight Yamaha F200 Outboard

    Yamaha Motor announce the launch of a remarkable new outboard model to its highly-acclaimed four-stroke range; the lightweight F200, which introduces many new and innovative features to this class and sets new standards for all other 200hp outboards.

    As part of its quest to satisfy the requirements of its customers and deliver continuous boating enjoyment through innovation and technology, Yamaha has created a new, four-cylinder F200 outboard engine that offers all the power of a 200hp model, but in a package that is closer in size and weight to the F150A, resulting in an exceptional power-to-weight ratio for the new engine.

    Weighing 227kg, approximately 50kg less than the previous V6, F200, this all new outboard is 22% lighter, while delivering a similar power output and offering the reliability that Yamaha has become famous for around the globe. The new F200 employs an in-line four-cylinder configuration, with Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) and weight-saving technology throughout to produce a 200HP powerplant that is the lightest engine in its class. The lighter weight, better suited to a wider range of 6.0m-8.0m boats and RIBs, also helps improve fuel-efficiency, as well as performance.

    Two versions of the new F200 will be available — the F200F, with a regular mechanical shift and throttle, and the F200G, with an electronically-controlled, drive-by-wire shift and throttle. The F200 models also benefits from recent technological advances made by Yamaha, such as Yamaha’s Y-COP (Yamaha Customer Outboard Protection) anti-theft system, SDS (Shift Dampener System) for smooth gear engagement and a newly-designed Reliance SDS as recommended propeller, a tilt-limiter, and LCD colour display (optional for the F200G only), one-touch start/stop (optional for the F200G only), and the ability to set variable trolling-speed revs. These features place the F200F/G firmly alongside Yamaha’s top-of-the-range V6 (4.2L) and V8 outboards.

    The F200F/G are aimed primarily at customers who want the power of a 200HP but the compact dimensions and weight of the Yamaha F150A or even a two-stroke 200HP. In fact, this engine would be ideal for re-powering from a two-stroke 200HP to a cleaner, more environmentally-friendly four-stroke engine.

    With both the mechanical and electronically-controlled version Yamaha offers customers the possibility to fit the new outboard engine to a wide range of boats.
