The popular and proven range of Yamaha F50 and F60 outboards will adopt the latest stylish new rounded cowling design for the 2013 season.

This mid-sized, 996cc SOHC, purpose made marine engine recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, having been introduced in 2002 and remains largely unchanged today, with the only major modifications during this period being the introduction of EFI and a single throttle body system in 2006, whilst more notably it was also the first engine to feature a full NMEA 2000 data feed output with a multi-function DNG digital instrumentation network.

The four cylinder F50 and F60 engines enjoy an enviable reputation for durability and for their smooth running and good all-round performance.

However since the introduction two years ago of the F70, which is based on the same engine block, the F50 and F60 have fallen behind in their looks.

For 2013 the F50H, FT50J High Thrust, F60F and FT60G High Thrust models will all feature the same cowling as the F70 with the latest rounded design and new Yamaha graphics.

Sunsport Marine
The stylish new rounded top cowling – a compact design concept used on the current generation of state-of-the-art Yamaha four-stroke outboards – will now be a feature of the latest new look F9.9 model and its High Thrust partner, the FT9.9.
The F9.9 has been the focus of other recent development work at Yamaha, with the intention of making the latest version of this popular engine more appealing to owners who love its strong combination of power and reliability, with ease of handling - both on the water and on shore.

First, Yamaha engineers have created a new ergonomic design for the tiller handle, which is now a more convenient shorter length and features a comfortable, easy–to-use forward-mounted gear shift lever within easy reach. The FT models will continue with the longer tiller arm design which is better suited to sailboat auxiliary usage.

Next, the latest F9.9 has been made easier to handle physically, with design refinements such as a large, comfortable carrying handle built into the steering bracket – and a new rest-pad for storing the engine on its “back” (propeller side down) when required.

Together, these advantages add up to make this popular, portable and ultra-dependable engine the ‘smart’ choice for any leisure or professional user. Above all of course, it’s a Yamaha 4-stroke – and they don’t come ‘smarter’ than that.

The latest F9.9J will arrive in Spring 2013. Call Sunsport to register your interest.

Summary of new F9.9J features
• Latest Yamaha cowling design – sleek, stylish and compact
• Ergonomically designed tiller handle length – for easier handling and control
• Forward-mounted gear shift on tiller handle – within easy reach of the driver
• Large, comfortable handle built into steering bracket – for perfect portability
• Integrated rest-pad for upright storage – the F9.9 can also be stored on its side

Sunsport Marine
Yamaha Motor announce the launch of a remarkable new outboard model to its
highly-acclaimed four-stroke range; the lightweight F200, which introduces many
new and innovative features to this class and sets new standards for all other
200hp outboards.
As part of its quest to satisfy the requirements of its customers and deliver
continuous boating enjoyment through innovation and technology, Yamaha has
created a new, four-cylinder F200 outboard engine that offers all the power of a
200hp model, but in a package that is closer in size and weight to the F150A,
resulting in an exceptional power-to-weight ratio for the new engine.  
Weighing 227kg, approximately 50kg less than the previous V6, F200, this all new
outboard is 22% lighter, while delivering a similar power output and offering the
reliability that Yamaha has become famous for around the globe. The new F200
employs an in-line four-cylinder configuration, with Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) and weight-saving technology throughout to produce a 200HP powerplant that is the lightest engine in its class. The lighter weight, better suited to a wider range of 6.0m-8.0m boats and RIBs, also helps improve fuel-efficiency, as well as
Two versions of the new F200 will be available — the F200F, with a regular
mechanical shift and throttle, and the F200G, with an electronically-controlled,
drive-by-wire shift and throttle. The F200 models also benefits from recent
technological advances made by Yamaha, such as Yamaha’s Y-COP (Yamaha
Customer Outboard Protection) anti-theft system, SDS (Shift Dampener System)
for smooth gear engagement and a newly-designed Reliance SDS as recommended propeller, a tilt-limiter, and LCD colour display (optional for the F200G only), one- touch start/stop (optional for the F200G only), and the ability to set variable trolling-speed revs. These features place the F200F/G firmly alongside Yamaha’s top-of-the-range V6 (4.2L) and V8 outboards.
The F200F/G are aimed primarily at customers who want the power of a 200HP but the compact dimensions and weight of the Yamaha F150A or even a two-stroke 200HP. In fact, this engine would be ideal for re-powering from a two-stroke 200HP to a cleaner, more environmentally-friendly four-stroke engine.  
With both the mechanical and electronically-controlled version Yamaha offers
customers the possibility to fit the new outboard engine to a wide range of boats.
