compact & lightweight
For a portable outboard to be great it needs to be compact, lightweight and powerful. With the F9.9J Yamaha has delivered beyond expectation.
The Yamaha F9.9 is a remarkable little engine. It’s speed and acceleration is exceptional for a small outboard making it the perfect choice for small tinnies and inflatables. You won’t find such power and versatility in any other lightweight engine.
Yamaha portables feature a lightweight SOHC (Single Overhead Camshaft) or OHV (Overhead Valve) configuration, and weigh as little as 17kg on the F2.5. Outboard power doesn’t get much more portable than this.
