Yamaha F200C: More Power and Efficiency

10 Nov 2011

Even more fuel-efficient and powerful than its predecessor, Yamaha’s new F200C incorporates numerous design and engineering changes, along with a raft of new ancillary equipment, new materials and the latest weight saving technology.

The new Yamaha F200C replaces Yamaha’s current model, the popular and ultra-reliable F200A.

At the engine’s heart is a 3.3-litre DOHC 200hp V6 with Yamaha’s industry leading variable cam timing (VCT) offering dramatically improved low and mid-range engine torque, without compromising maximum horsepower output or performance at the top of the rev range.

The new model F200C has a single throttle valve controlled electronically by the engine’s ECM. Intake air is precisely managed and smoothly directed through surge chambers to the combustion chambers via long intake manifolds. The new manifold design increases airflow and works in tandem with VCT to boost low and mid-range torque.

Yamaha’s new F200C is rated as an ultra-low emission engine, exceeding all European and US emissions guidelines.

Available from authorised Yamaha outboard dealers around New Zealand, Yamaha four-stroke outboards are supported by a four-year manufacturer’s warranty; two-stroke outboards are backed by a three-year warranty – standard conditions apply.

Yamaha Marine Insurance and Yamaha Motor Finance packages are available at extremely competitive rates.
