Are you looking for a new outboard motor? Then it is important to look at a number of points. One of those points is the brand. There are several brands in circulation, one more famous than the other. Yamaha is a very well-known brand in water sports. Yamaha has a very wide range of outboard motors of different power. We have put together a top 3 of popular Yamaha outboard motors for you.

Our top 3

Among all the Yamaha offerings, it can be difficult to make the right choice. That is why we have put together a top 3 of Yamaha outboard motors in different power classes below.

Yamaha 4 hp

An outboard motor that we recommend is the Yamaha 4 hp. A 4 hp outboard motor is ideal for smaller (rubber) boats that do not go very fast. This Yamaha 4 hp has a 4-stroke engine, is lightweight and can be easily carried. The engine is a short shaft and is started manually. You can control the outboard motor using a control stick. There is also a connection for an external tank, so you can make twice as many sailing hours. In short, this Yamaha 4 hp 4-stroke is an ideal outboard motor for your boat or sloop.

Yamaha 15 hp

Do you have a medium-sized boat and do you need more power under your boat? Then a Yamaha 15 hp is highly recommended. This outboard motor has a 4-stroke engine and a 2-cylinder injection engine. The Yamaha 15 hp is a long shaft and is started electrically. You can control the engine using a control stick.

Yamaha 40 hp

The Yamaha 40 hp outboard motor is even more powerful than the 4 hp and 15 hp. With these powerhouses, large motorboats can certainly gain a lot of speed. The Yamaha 40 hp has a 4-stroke engine and a quiet and economical 3-cylinder injection engine. You can start this long shaft outboard motor electrically. In addition, the engine has a hydraulic tilt cylinder: it tilts very slightly up and down.

Other Yamaha outboard motors

Of course we have many more Yamaha outboard motors. Is a 4 hp, 15 hp or 40 hp not suitable for your boat? For example, we also have a Yamaha 9.9 hp 4-stroke and a Yamaha 8 hp 4-stroke. Or take a look at our other asset classes:

Many of our outboard motors are equipped with a 4-stroke engine. A 4-stroke engine is more economical, quieter and more environmentally friendly than a 2-stroke engine.
