For big engine performance, delivered in a small engine package, you can’t go past Yamaha’s F20 outboard. This two-cylinder, 362cc, four-stroke outboard is extremely fuel efficient, while producing a powerful and smooth-riding all-round performance. This engine includes Yamaha’s PrimeStartTM, which delivers quick and efficient starting in all climatic conditions. While the manual start model includes an Auto Decompression feature which makes pull starting easier. Other useful features include a Shallow Water Drive System which allows safe operation in shallow waters and a high out-put alternator to ensure adequate power supply to run all your electronics. This model also comes with power tilt and mechanical steering options.
Features & Rigging Componentry
362cc Two-Cylinder Single
The four-valve, two-cylinder, single overhead camshaft delivers sufficient torque from low to mid speed ranges, for a quick response and smooth operation.
Easy Start Decompression Device
For easy pull starting, these engines feature an auto decompression device fitted to the camshaft. This system releases pressure in the cylinder when the manual pull-start is engaged, allowing for light and convenient pull starting.
Ergonomic Carry and Control Handles
Large comfortable grips located on the front and back of the engine make carrying, mounting and removing the engine easier. The tiller handle folds neatly back to make the engine even more compact for carrying and storage.
Fresh Water Flushing System
Simply connect a hose to the easy access connector to flush salt and dirt from the outboard, without having to run the engine. Flushing the engine after each usage reduces corrosion and extends the engines life.
A 12 Volt 10 Amp high-output alternator ensures that power is always available to start the engine, even after long periods of idling or running at low revs. This provides extra starting power and delivers sufficient power to run a wide array of on-board electronic devices.
Labyrinth Exhaust System
Yamaha’s proven labyrinth exhaust system reduces engine noise at low RPM and idle. A water sealed outer wall around the exhaust muffler effectively reduces exhaust tone, for whisper quiet operation and enhances cooling, which protects the exhaust system against corrosion.
Manual Tilt Shallow Water Drive
This engine features a three-step shallow water drive system, which is extremely useful for tackling Australia’s shallow rivers, estuaries, creeks and when coming to shore.
Mechanical Steering Control
The F20 has the choice between tiller or forwards mechanical control options.
Yamaha’s push-button tilt control makes tilt adjustments quick, smooth and easy - for electric start models only.
Yamaha's Prime StartTM makes starting as easy as starting a car. It allows the engine to be started cold by automatically controlling the engine ‘warming up’ process - eliminating the need for a conventional choke and the need to ‘warm up’ your engine by revving it in neutral.
Anti-Corrosion Paint System
Yamaha engines are known for their durability and high re-sale value. Part of this lies in the anti-corrosion protection. A unique YDC-30 aluminium alloy and 5-stage exterior paint coating process protects the engine's exterior parts, while high-quality, marine-grade stainless steel componentry is used through-out.
Strong Tiller Handle
Engine operation is made easy with the sturdy tiller handle which includes a large front shift, bigger throttle grip, a stop switch and for power trim models, a convenient power tilt switch.
703 Side-Mounted Control
One of Yamaha's best selling controls, this mechanical remote offers comfort, simplicity and flexibility. With its new ergonomic grip, reversible right-hand or left-hand installation, and convenient trim and tilt operation, this control offers all-round functionality and value.
6x3 Concealed Side-Mounted Control
With its stylish chrome finish and ergonomic design, this mechanical control not only looks good, but provides effortless one-hand operation. The trim and tilt switch is comfortably located on the handle and features easily accessible neutral warm-up controls and externally adjustable throttle friction.
704 Premium Single Binnacle Control
This highly-polished, stylish looking, top mounted control allows for effortless one-handed control. The ergonomic design features a thumb operated trim and tilt switch built into the handle, as well as shift and throttle control functions, for convenient and comfortable operation.
