Yamaha’s range of high-thrust outboards have been specifically designed to provide the extra grunt you need to move big loads such as sailboats and heavy pontoons. These dual-thrust four-stroke engines produce twice the thrust of comparable two-strokes within the 2,000 to 3,000 RPM range, while delivering Yamaha’s the legendary reliability, durability, and efficiency that Yamaha Outboards are renown for.
The key mechanical difference between the FT25 and the standard four-stroke platform is the use of a higher gear ratio. This allows the FT25 to spin a much larger propeller, generating more power to the water and resulting in less slippage. The FT25 comes standard with Yamaha’s patented Dual Thrust propeller that provides maximum traction in both forward and reverse, by re-routing the exhaust in the opposite direction when in reverse.
