What’s surprising about boating with one of the new Yamaha outboards is the seemingly visceral connection between driver and outboard. It’s as if the outboard has gained a new level of understanding and control and this makes the life of the skipper easier by providing less worry and way more fun.
The all-new F70 Yamaha Outboard is genuinely unbeatable and continues Yamaha’s tradition of unrivalled evolution.
Each new outboard that they release is lighter, more powerful and has better fuel efficiency than the previous model. For example, the F70 is the lightest, most potent four-stroke in its class, providing a zippy disposition every time it hits the water. The F70 is perfectly matched for smaller pontoons and lightweight fishing and aluminium vessels. It’s so light in fact that it weighs about 36kg lighter than any competitor in its class. This does not affect its power in the slightest, though. The F70’s 16-valve SOHC (Single Overhead Camshaft) midrange four-stroke also comes with the best power-to-weight ratio in its class with a displacement reading of 996cc.
The outboard has a large intake valve area with lightweight pistons and valves, which give it class-leading horsepower-per-litre. All gears on the F70 have been specially designed and hardened for increased durability. This provides the outboard outstanding ‘out the hole’ acceleration.
The EFI (Electronic Fuel Injectors) system offers fantastic fuel economy that does not waste a drop. The EFI’s deliver the perfect amount of fuel via an array of engine sensors that heighten the efficiency of the outboard. The F70 is also compatible with Yamaha’s Digital Network Gauges, which if installed provide you with real-time engine performance information such as a multifunction tachometer with RPM, hours run, trim angle, variable rpm control and speed/fuel management.
