Whether it's exploring our stunning local rivers and bays or venturing offshore in search of the ultimate catch, there is nothing more important than returning home safely after an amazing day on the water.
This is where Yamaha comes into its own. With over 60 years of marine engineering excellence, Yamaha has built a legendary reputation for producing the world's most reliable, durable and premium outboard engines.
Combine this with the latest cutting-edge design and integrated boat control technologies, and the most extensive marine dealer network in Australia, it's no wonder Yamaha is trusted by more Australian boaters.
A firmly imbedded spirit of craftsmanship can be found at the manufacturing and production facilities of Yamaha Motor. This craftsmanship is about adding on extra touches in each stage of the production process by calling on the sensitivities unique to our brand, the traditions of our manufacturing worksites, and the pride and special sense of each specialist at work. With Yamaha outboards, everything we do is to ensure we continue to deliver on our legendary reputation for producing the world’s most reliable outboard engines.
Aluminium Melt Cleaning Process
Aluminium Part Manufacturing
Plastic Part Manufacturing
If you trace back the various steps of the manufacturing process for building performance, functions, quality, and design into a product, everything begins with the raw materials used. And because delivering unquestionable reliability is the goal when producing Yamaha outboards, the first step in the production process is at aluminum smelting sites.
The lower unit is the bottommost part of an outboard motor and is made from a single large aluminum casting. Its high resistance to corrosion while submerged in the harsh operating environment of the world’s waters is the product of carefully selected materials, precision machining techniques, and the application of a proprietary undercoating using first-rate painting technologies.
The powerhead cowling envelops the outboard’s engine and it must be well engineered and functional to protect it from the water. But since it doubles as the “face” of the outboard, it must also sport a highly attractive and refined design. To enhance the natural beauty of the cowling’s curves and contours, Yamaha’s craftsmen bring their finely honed senses and skills to bear.
At Yamaha’s outboard motor assembly factory is a series of large water tanks designed to simulate the open sea, and this is where newly completed engines are given their final tests and checks. Every Yamaha outboard engine—without exception—gets its baptism in one of these tanks with a full-throttle test run before being shipped out to countries and waters around the world.
When you buy a Yamaha outboard you are buying the knowledge and expertise gained from over 60 years of research and development, cutting-edge engineering, and real world on-water experience.
There is a reason why more Australian recreational and commercial boaters choose Yamaha outboards over any other. Yamaha outboards has built an enviable reputation for reliability and 'starting first time, every time', allowing you to sit back, relax and enjoy your time on the water.
Utilising advanced Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) and engine management technologies, Yamaha four-stroke outboards are extremely powerful, smart, efficient and environmentally friendly.
Yamaha Built Componentry
We build our own gauges, throttles, props and other rigging componentry, to deliver a completely integrated and seamless engine ecosystem for superior outboard performance.
Uncompromising attention to detail, precision engineering and commitment to continuous improvement is why Japanese manufactured Yamaha outboards are renowned for their exceptional quality, performance and finish.
Lower Costs Higher Resale
Yamaha outboards are not only easier to service and maintain, but consistently attract more when it comes time to sell. Don’t take our word for it, speak to any independent marine mechanic or go on-line to compare the figures for yourself.
Yamaha’s Multi-Point Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI), vapour management and low emission technologies are why Yamaha outboards are renowned for their excellent fuel economy and low emissions.
2 + 2 Year Warranty
All Yamaha outboards are covered under a two-year standard Manufacturer’s warranty, plus customers who choose to have their four-stroke outboard scheduled services completed by an Authorised Yamaha Outboard Dealer, receive an additional two-year Extended Warranty. *The VMAX VF250, VF225 and VF200 are covered under a three-year (two-year standard, plus one-year extended) warranty.
Smooth & Whisper Quiet
Yamaha’s shift dampening props, labyrinth exhaust systems, water sealed outer shaft walls and noise suppressing cowlings are just some of the technologies that help Yamaha outboards deliver such smooth and whisper quiet operation.
All Yamaha outboards incorporate Yamaha's exclusive engine protection system, designed to handle the harshest marine environments and operating conditions.
Exclusive YDC 30 Alloy
Yamaha’s proprietary YDC-30 alloy is not only lightweight and strong, but incorporates industry leading anti-corrosion properties, for long-term engine performance and durability.
Phase Five Paint Process
Yamaha’s exclusive five layer paint process protects against saltwater corrosion and damage caused by strong sunlight and ultraviolet rays, ensuring your outboard always looks like new.
Innovative Cowling System
Integrated into the watertight cowling is an intake air draining system which efficiently drains away any potential water ingress, while allowing air to enter - resulting in long-term engine protection.
Yamaha’s ultra-toughened lower gearcases utilise extra strong bearings and gears for improved durability and operating longevity.
Water-sealed Outer Walls
By directing cooling water around the muffler, the water sealed outer walls not only reduce exhaust noise, but protects the exhaust system.
FRESH WATER FLUSHING SYSTEM
Simply connect your garden hose to the input port to thoroughly flush out salt and debris, without needing to start the engine. This reduces corrosion, extends the life of the engine and keeps your neighbours happy.
Large Self-Sacrificing Anodes
Extra-large self-sacrificing anodes, located in the powerhead, lower unit and tilt bracket, draw corrosion away from vital engine components ensuring maximum corrosion protection.
Marine Grade Stainless Steel
The highest quality marine grade stainless steel componentry is used extensively throughout all Yamaha outboards for superior durability in the most extreme conditions.
Due to their extreme toughness, exceptional reliability and durability, Yamaha outboards continue to be the engine of choice for many tourism, adventure and fishing charter businesses; commercial fisherman and fish farm operators, government departments, volunteer organisations and law enforcement agencies across Australia.
