Model Description

Harness a high-thrust workhorse

When you want raw power and precise handling, FT models are the perfect answer. Ideal for sailing, fishing and working boats, these high-thrust, high-torque engines set new standards of performance, with minimal noise and vibration – and maximum fuel economy.

FT models use Yamaha’s patented Dual-Thrust propeller to provide full thrust in Forward and Reverse – making light work of manoeuvring a heavy boat.

CDI/TCI Micro-computer Ignition offers easy starting and reliability whatever the conditions, and high-output alternators provide extra starting power, even after long periods at low RPM. FT Series engines are big, powerful workhorses – designed never to let you down.
