Yamaha f20“This is a very popular horsepower in Canada so there are a lot of boaters who will benefit from the new F20’s strength, faster acceleration and improved performance under load,” said JF Rioux, Yamaha Motor Canada’s Division Manager, Marine and Business Planning. “The versatile F20 can power a wide variety of boats and offers several added features, including EFI for easy starts and Variable Trolling Speed.”

The latest addition to Yamaha’s portable outboard lineup, the F20 is big on performance and features. Combining power, efficiency and convenience, this all-new four-stroke outboard is a perfect fit for boaters limited to 20-horsepower.

The new F20 is built around the F25, an IBEX Innovation Award-winning outboard that immediately set the industry standard. Modified ECU mapping and a redesigned camshaft allow the new F20 to harness the huge potential of this platform and optimize the performance of every one of the 20 horses available.

The F20 features an alternator that produces up to 16 amps of power, 60 percent more output than the previous generation F20. There is also ample electrical power for battery charging with plenty to spare for additional electronic equipment.

The Variable Trolling rpm switch makes the F20 the perfect fishing companion, while the easy-to-us freshwater flush attachment makes the outboard simple to clean at the end of the day. The F20 also features built-in ergonomic carry handles and two-position resting pads for convenient portability and storage.

Customers can choose manual start configuration, using Yamaha’s battery-less Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) technology, to power their boat with minimum rigging requirements. Yamaha also offers a range of electric-start configurations, all with factory-installed manual pull start back up for added peace of mind.

The new F20 comes in 20-inch (L) and 15-inch (S) shaft versions with remote, electric or manual start tiller handle, or optional multifunction tiller control, and is expected to be available in the spring of 2019.
