Size Matters

Claire compares the smallest and largest in the Yamaha range


Outboard manufacturer Yamaha unveiled its new F300 four-stroke outboard at the show today. But it’s the flagship outboard of the four-stroke range, the awesome F350, that really catches the eye when you walk past the stand. Weighing in at 365kg the huge outboard towers above the likes of me (5’4″ – I think?) and the smallest and lightest member of the range, the 2.5hp four-stroke (seen here in the picture). The F350 is on the market just a pinch under £20k at £19,999 RRP. While its baby sibling the 2.5 weighs just 17kg and is £439. All Yamaha outboards now come with a five-year warranty as standard.
