There are many reasons why Yamaha boats lead their class in sales. Today’s boaters demand more, and Yamaha owners have learned first hand that they can achieve that perfect balance of fuel efficiency and family fun on their Yamaha boat.
Through a combination of smart design, innovative features and class leading fuel efficiency, Yamaha Boats are changing the way people boat. Today, boaters are finding those perfect spots on the water where they can hang out all day with the family, and utilize the unique Yamaha features such as the swim platform and spacious cockpit to give them that perfect waterfront getaway.
A full day out on the lake can use as little as 4-6 gallons of fuel (less than $30) utilizing Yamaha’s fuel efficient twin engines and lightweight design. This is significantly less than other family activities. Think about it – taking a family of four to a 3 hour baseball game can easily cost $150. Besides, the low cost, it’s hard to match the fun and excitement provided by a day out on a Yamaha boat.
Yamaha boats are much lighter than comparable stern drives. In some cases the weight difference can near 2,000 pounds, giving Yamaha boats an overwhelming power to weight advantage. Less drag in the water allows the engines to operate more effectively. Less weight also makes them easier and more efficient to tow behind a wider variety of vehicles.
Now factor in the fuel efficiency of Yamaha marine engines, and you’ve got an incredibly proficient boat. According to Boattest.com® and other industry magazines, the twin engine Yamaha SX230 High Output delivers better performance than comparable models in its class, but burns much less per hour.
Our twin internal four-stroke Yamaha Marine engines offer incomparable handling and allow our boats to accelerate twice as fast as competitive stern-drive boats – going from 0-30 in half the time, while using
|FASTER PLANING Yamaha’s internal propulsion system delivers explosive acceleration and reduces bow rise. When the boat pushes forward, the higher thrust point of our boats allows them to plane more quickly than stern-drive boats.
|SWIM PLATFORM DESIGN With Yamaha's internal propulsion and compact engine design, our innovative swim platform rests at the water level, allowing you and your family to get in and out of the water with ease.
|SHALLOW WATER CLEARANCE Because of the internal engine design, our boats are able to navigate in shallow water, so you have the freedom to explore parts of the water a traditional stern-drive wouldn't be able to reach.
Yamaha deploys state of the art robotics in the manufacturing of our hulls and decks. Using precision laser guidance, the robots are able to cut and drill each hull and deck to exact specifications, ensuring each boat is built the same down to the smallest measurement.
