Yamaha f300Yamaha Motor Canada has announced a new mechanical control version of its 4.2-litre F300 V6 outboard, available in both left and right-hand rotation.

“Canada’s waterways are diverse and so are the needs of its boaters. Offering a wide range of outboard choices ensures Yamaha continues to provide our customers with the best possible experiences on the water,” said Jean-Francois Rioux, National Manager, Marine, Yamaha Motor Canada. “This new addition to our outboard lineup gives customers the option of mechanical or digital control for the F150, F175, F200, F225, F250 and F300 models.”

Whether you choose digital electronic control or the new mechanical control F300, you get the same features, power and performance inside. Yamaha’s 4.2-litre models have big-bore V6 displacement thanks to plasma-fused sleeveless cylinders, which increase displacement without enlarging the outer diameter of the cylinder bores. The result is an outboard with the largest displacement in its class.

This technology also helps reduce weight. Yamaha’s V6 Offshore Mechanicals are more than 50 pounds lighter than the company’s venerable 3.3-litre V6s. In addition, they offer better low- and mid- range punch and better fuel efficiency.

An electronically controlled single throttle valve and precision multi-point electronic fuel injection make these outboards up to 17 percent more fuel efficient. With no need to carry two-stroke oil, the available space in the boat can be used more efficiently.

When repowering with the Yamaha 4.2-litre V6 Mechanicals, there is typically no need to change over to a new control box, thus providing an economical solution for work boats or other craft where digital control is not needed or desired.

Repower customers have a wide array of super quiet Yamaha SDSTM propellers to choose from, including the Saltwater Series IITM with SDS and the Saltwater Series HS4 with SDS. Yamaha’s patented Shift Dampener System distributes and absorbs the forces and the resulting sounds and vibrations that are normally associated with shifting an outboard into gear.

Expected availability of Yamaha’s new 4.2-litre F300 V6 Mechanical model is Summer 2017.
